It’s so easy to make a difference

Posted August 17, 2011 by Fantasea Yachts Team

Leslie Fernandez, our operations assistant, had been debating for months about cutting her long hair and finally decided to do it…but not without cause. Leslie made sure her healthy long hair went to those in need.

With her hair nearly 9” shorter, she donated her locks to http://www.childrenwithhairloss.us/ whose mission is to provide hair to children with medically-related hair loss.

Leslie very easily could have swept her up and tossed it…but instead she’s given empowerment, increased self-esteem and confidence to a child in need. She changed a life doing something we all do every day.

Here are a few other organizations that take hair donations:

www.locksoflove.org/donate

www.wigsforkids.org

Its not just about donating hair though, it’s about giving back in general. Instead of getting rid of old toys, clothes, shoes or blankets why not donate them to a local shelter, boys and girls club or YMCA?

Most of us only feel the need to donate during the holidays, but there are so many ways we can give back all year round. Whenever I purchase something new, I make a point of donating something old. It’s so easy, and so simple, to make a positive impact on someone else’s life.
