Savy Toddler just turned three and we have never cut her hair. It is currently down to her lower back. At the moment, we aren't ready to cut it, but we have started the process of talking to her about donating her hair to children who are currently unable to grow their own. In doing so, I know of the organization Locks of Love, but I want to know more about other organizations it could go to. Nothing against Locks of Love as I think that there mission is very worth of donations, but I like to give to something that is less mainstream and where my donation may make a greater impact.
