This is probably one of my favorite events that I love supporting in Second Life. Like many of you I like finding new hair styles to wear at this event, but more importantly it is the charity organization that it supports with a portion of the proceeds. The Wigs for Kids, is a non-profit organization that provides hair replacement systems and support for children who lose their hair due to medical issues.
I cringe just when I see the amount of strands of hair that I lose after each shower, so my heart goes out to those children who not only suffer the physicality of their condition. They also suffer in the change of their appearance when they lose all their hair. It’s wonderful that we have an opportunity to help in this cause by just buying hair at this event, because every transaction made means a portion of the proceeds go to Wigs for Kids.
So please support this cause by buying hair at the Hair Fair event that begins on July 11th and ends on July 26th. Again, this year you can join the demo group in-world (see below for link to the group) to grab all the demos starting July 10th for you to try prior to going to the event.
For more information on the event, please also visit the Hair Fair event website.
Also, back this year is Bandana Day. This is on the last day of the fair, July 26th, where we as a Second Life community show that we care by removing our hairs. You can support this by also purchasing bandanas sold at the event that are created by residents of Second Life and 100% of the sales go to Wigs for Kids. These bandanas are only available for sale at the event and no longer available after it ends. They are transferable so you can gift them to family and friends.
