Our Social Responsibility 2023
Our journey as a company to support Alopecians and Alopecia research started in 2021. After a successful campaign in 2021, we would love to do more this year. By way of providing wigs to as many Alopecians as possible through the Wig lending library (WLL) of CANAAF.
The CANAAF Wig Lending Library, was established to provide an opportunity for wig newbies (to the hair piece lifestyle) to try different wigs and find out what styles, cap constructions, and hair types they like most. For newbies, buying a wig for the first time is a very daunting task since they may not know the options that exist.
How can you help us donate to this library?
- For every 15 human hair wigs purchased this year, we will donate one wig to the wig lending library.
- For every 30 synthetic wigs purchased this year, we will donate one wig to the wig lending library.
With your help, we hope to donate a minimum of 20 wigs to the CANAAF library. Therefore, we graciously request that you join us in this service to fellow women. We appreciate your support.
Our Social Responsibility 2021
What inspired us?
2020 made a difference in our organization, particularly due to a unique group of women suffering from a medical condition called alopecia whom we were lucky to serve. Alopecia is an autoimmune genetically related disease that affects the hair follicles and causes partial or total hair loss.
In August 2020, a fine gentleman contacted us saying "Please can you help my wife?” Asking him how, he blurted out the words.... "she's suffering from hair loss and feeling less of a woman”. We care deeply about EVERY woman and none of us should feel this way!
This type of call came in at least once a month for every other month in 2020. Thankfully, we helped some, but couldn’t help all. However, we couldn’t get over this experience and so it fueled our passion of helping these women restore their sense of femininity and boost their confidence. In turn, we hope this will improve their overall well-being while experiencing an overwhelming and difficult time in their life. Again, we believe EVERY woman exudes an inner beauty just the way they are and we can support those who want it.
Here’s what you should know:
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 40% of women have visible hair loss by the time they are age 40. This could be due to childbearing, illness (such as cancer or alopecia), the weather or other causes.
What can we do as a community?
$2 from every qualifying purchase made in the year 2021 will be donated to support women suffering from hair loss. With your help, we will provide financial and product support to qualifying women. Therefore, we graciously request that you join us in this service to fellow women. We appreciate your support.
