PK Walsh volunteers to help children so they don’t have to worry about how they look, especially when they are in the middle of a health crisis. We partner with several non-profit organizations providing the necessary help and services to give these kids a chance to feel good about themselves again!
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the USA and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.
Wigs for Kids is a cooperative effort among certified cosmetic therapists throughout North America to help children look like themselves & live their lives!
The TLC Foundation for Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors helps children with Trichotillomania, more commonly known as Hair Pulling Disorder, which is characterized by the repetitive pulling out of one’s hair. It usually begins in late childhood/early puberty. In childhood, it occurs about equally in boys and girls. By adulthood, 80-90% of reported cases are women.
National Alopecia Areata Foundation People of all ages, races and both sexes can develop Alopecia areata, but it often first appears during childhood. Children five years old and younger appear to experience little emotional impact as a result of their condition. However, as they get older, it may become more difficult for them to accept their Alopecia areata, and issues with self-confidence may begin to affect their experiences at school and with friends.
