Pantene Beautiful Lengths: The $8 or 8" Challenge
We know how important the appearance of strong, healthy hair can be. For some women battling cancer, the appearance of strong, healthy hair can mean so much more. That's why we're happy to support Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and we hope you are, too! This amazing program was created to help women battling cancer feel like themselves again with free, real-hair wigs.
The best part is everyone can participate by donating either 8 inches of hair or $8 to support the cause. Pantene is dedicating themselves to helping women battling cancer and we hope you will, too! Read on for details on how you can get involved.
Pantene has started the Beautiful Lengths Fund and the #8or8Challenge to encourage people to share their strength and donate their beautiful, healthy hair to create free wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.
Thanks to Pantene's partnership with the American Cancer Society® they've donated 42,000 real-hair wigs to the national American Cancer Society Wig Bank!
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED:
1. DONATE 8 INCHES
If you so courageously are choosing to donate 8 inches of your own hair to those women in need, please head to pantene.com for all of the details on how to make it happen!
Although Pantene accepts and appreciates all the help and support you are willing to give, please keep in mind there are some requirements for hair donations. Donations must be at least 8 inches long, hair cannot be permanently dyed, bleached, or chemically treated, and hair cannot be more than 5% grey.
2. DONATE $8
Since the program began in 2006, Pantene Beautiful Lengths has gained a passionate following with generous hair donations at the core. Unfortunately, many who want to get involved through hair donations cannot due to donation requirements and restrictions.
Now, Pantene Beautiful Lengths is giving everyone the opportunity to support the cause by partnering with the Greater Cincinnati Foundation to accept monetary donations.
No donation is too small - every penny counts! Plus, 100% of contributions made to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund go directly to helping create free, real-hair wigs for women battling cancer.
If you wish to make a monetary donation, please go to www.gcfdn.org/pantene
3. SPREAD THE WORD
You can also get involved by using social media to spread the word. All you have to do is RT a Pantene Charitweet or create your own tweet to share the cause!
