The Rapunzel Foundation… hair donation
Snips Wigs are registered with the Rapunzel Foundation. The Rapunzel Foundation is a charitable organisation that works to improve the lives of those living with hair loss (Alopecia) through hair donations.
Hair is raised through the Rapunzel Foundation’s Ponytail Campaign. People commit to growing their hair 14 inches or longer with the view to their hair being sent to help make much needed wigs to improve the lives of those living with hair loss. It takes between 20 to 25 ponytails to make one wig!
