Wigs 4 Kids is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that reaches out to kids and young adults with hair loss. This program is available to any child or teen from ages 3 through 18 in Michigan at no cost to them or their families.
This week I had the opportunity to meet with the Founder & CEO Maggie Varney and her dedicated staff at the Wigs 4 Kids Wellness Center.
Not only are they working hard to help these children look better on the outside, they also help them feel better on the inside. Wigs 4 Kids provides support services including grief and loss counseling, nutrition classes, art and music therapy, a cosmetology program and various children’s activities.
What I really loved about this program is that they do all of this at no cost to the children and their families. I learned about the process from hair donations, to the making of a wig, to meeting with the kids, to the fittings and on going support. Maggie and her team welcome the children in and make them feel special and right at home. I could see they truly care for these children.
Wigs 4 Kids: Kids need to have a sense of belonging, they need to fit in and be accepted by their peers. Wigs 4 Kids helps kids deal with appearance related issues and social acceptance, which are so critical to young adults and children.
I love the work of Wigs 4 Kids and I’m happy to have met with this beautiful organization. They are doing great things for Kids in Michigan. They do this from the hard work within, the support of people in our community and beyond. They receive hair donations from all over the world.
