Donate Wigs to American Cancer Society

Posted on March 23, 2010 by Wig Expert There have been 18 comment(s)

Did you know that you can donate your gently used and never-worn wigs to the American Cancer Society?

Doing something great in your community can be as easy as sending off your old wigs. Wig donations make a big difference in the lives of women battling cancer and those in treatment. To be a part of this amazing philanthropic program, just visit the American Cancer Society here and enter your zip code in the box that says ‘Find ACS in Your Community’. From there, you will learn where to send those wigs you never wore, wore once, and wigs that look barely-used. You can do something big in the fight against cancer with ACS.

Wigs in Action
Recently in December 2009, the American Cancer Society bestowed their highest honor, the Corporate Impact Award to Raquel Welch and parent company Hair U Wear for their contribution of more than $1 million dollars worth of wigs. This huge donation of wigs is distributed to women fighting cancer to help them cope with the challenge of a lifetime. Raquel Welch wigs help women look good, improve their self-esteem, and handle their treatment and recovery with greater confidence.

    Besides a few gentle worn wigs I also have the head forms and was wondering if I can also donate these.

    My wife just died from breast cancer afte ar 13 year battle, leaving 27 wigs-- blond with many colorations and styles, most have never been used but do not have price tags attached. Together with 27 Styrofoam heads, dozen wire and plastic wig holders, three suction lock bases for holding the Styrofoam heads on the counter while styling the wig, multiple unopened bottles of wig cleaning solution. Wigs are individually stored in ziploc bags. All wigs purchased from Paula Young (on-line) except one which is made of high grade natural hair. All are in excellent or like-new condition. Located in Santa Rosa, CA (60 mi north of San Francisco). Can I ship these to you?

    Hi Connie, thank you for your comment. Please contact the American Cancer Society and they should be able to refer you to a local place to donate hairpieces. You may also send them to us so we can donate to the ACS on your behalf. To express our thanks, we’ll send you a 20% off coupon toward a brand new wig or hairpiece. Thanks in advance for your donations!

    Hi there, I have a sparsely used wig from my mother that I would like to donate to ACS. Is it best to mail to the Kansas City address or bring it to that address? If mailing, are there recommendations for packaging the wig (on styrofoam head) to avoid damage? Thank you in advance.

  • Wig Expert

    Hi Jennifer, thank you for your comment. Please mail the wig as we are not able to accept drop-offs at our facility. You should not need any special packaging. Most clients mail the wig in a ziplock bag or the original wig box, inside a shipping box. Thank you for your donation!
