For everyone on this thread:I am not confused about anything! I know they probably have fundraisers like other non profit organizations, and clearly they sell hair. I do not want to donate to these organizations that sell hair, when they can clearly use this hair for wigs for children. Of course they have operating costs just like any other business or organization, and have other means of receiving money to operate business. For example, grants, and cash donations. I personally believe an organization that says they provide wigs for children should do this, and use the (hair)donations collected for this purpose only! Also, I do not like the sliding scale pay.I personally believe it to be tacky to sell hair to a family of a child who needs a wig, why not give it to them? Why make this family pay another expense? This is my choice, not anyone else's on this thread. If anyone else wants to cut their hair, go to the trouble of sending it to LOL or Wigs for Kids, and not know if it is going to be sold to a wigmaster, or used for a wig for child, then you can do this, I will not.
