WHAT IS LOCKS OF LOVE?
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization
that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged
children in the United States and Canada under
age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss
from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for
children by using donated hair to create the highest
quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children
helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due
to a medical condition called alopecia areata,
which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses
we provide help to restore their self-esteem and
their confidence, enabling them to face the world
and their peers.
Our mission is to return a sense of self,
confidence and normalcy to children suffering
from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails
to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics
to financially disadvantaged children.
The children receive hair prostheses free of charge
or on a sliding scale, based on financial need.

Solicitations often occur on behalf of Locks of Love as part of an event being held to benefit Locks of Love. These events are normally registered with Locks of Love and have obtained approval to use our trademark name and logo in association with promoting the event. However, it has been brought to our attention that unauthorized solicitations are occurring from time to time. The organization Locks of Love does not solicit for hair or financial donations through any means including but not limited to: social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc., telemarketing or direct mailers other than the official Locks of Love newsletter. Unless part of an event, all donations should be mailed to: 234 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL 33405. This is Locks of Love’s only office and anyone instructing you to mail your donation to a differing location is most likely fraudulent.
Locks of Love provides permission for groups and individuals to sponsor events to benefit our charity. The event organizers have registered and received permission to use our name and logo for a limited time. Registered events may be confirmed by contacting our office.
