Hi! My name is Jenessa. My hair grows really fast. Since it was getting very long, I decided to cut my hair and donate it to Wigs for Kids, so that they can use it to make a wig for someone else that needs hair.
My campaign is named Jen1010 because I cut my hair on October 10th and I also turned double digits earlier this month! It takes $1800 dollars and 20 - 30 hair donations to make one wig. I was hoping to raise $1010, which is a little more than half the cost of making a wig. As of October 22nd, my family, their-coworkers, and my friends families helped me go beyond my fundraising goal. My Dad's company, Veriato, also made a big donation. Thanks to everyone that donated!
This is actually my second time donating hair to Wigs for Kids and fundraising for them. I decided to do it again because it makes me feel good that my hair is going to a good cause. Maybe I'll do it a again in a few years. - Jenessa
