Pantene Beautiful Lengths - National Donate Your Hair Day & A Giveaway ***GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED****

Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Thank you to everyone who entered this wonderful giveaway.  Your comments and support were so very much appreciated!  The winner of the prize pack is Amy!  Congrats!

This Saturday, November 12th, Pantene will be celebrating National Donate Your Hair Day!  This annual day of giving is meant to encourage Canadians to cut and donate their hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program. Hair donations will then be used to make real-hair wigs for women battling cancer.  Pantene has donated over 50,000 wigs so far to the Canadian Cancer Society and the American Cancer Society's wig banks!  Providing a ray of sunshine to recipients during what must be one of the most difficult times in their lives.

Every year, over 96,000 women (according to the Canadian Cancer Society) are diagnosed with cancer in Canada and as a result, many of these women undergo treatment which often times results in them losing their hair.  With over 800,000 ponytails collected across North American to-date, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program hopes that even more people will support the cause by donating their hair this Saturday, November 12th!

If you're in the GTA area, and wish to visit the Bang Salon at 859 Danforth Avenue in Toronto between 9am - 4pm to donate your hair, please send an email to PBLCanada@gmail.com (appointments are limited).  The entire salon will be full of women and men who are also donating their locks!  It's incredible to know how just 8" of hair length can make a huge difference in the life of someone who is battling cancer. (there are some donation requirements and donations can be made year round, this event is also about raising awareness)

Pantene also knows that not everyone is able to donate their hair and that is why they started The Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund as well as the  #Donate2Create program.  This allows those who are unable to donate their hair, to instead make a monetary donation.  Monetary donations are accepted here.

The stories are truly incredible, from hearing why people have chosen to donate, to the stories from those who have been recipients.  Reading about donors who have made donations year after year, it's touching, it's eye opening and it's an absolutely wonderful cause.  Wig recipients have said that they feel like themselves again, and that is amazing to hear!

You can use the #BeautifulLengths & #Donate2Create hashtags on Instagram and Twitter to show your participation!

Pantene wants to celebrate their #BeautifulLengths program by giving away a Pantene Prize Pack to one lucky reader, to help them grow beautiful long locks, which may one day be donated to this incredible program.  To enter, please follow the instructions below.  Giveaway is open to Canadian Residents and closes Tuesday, November 15th at 11:59pm EST.  Good luck!

  12. I really wish I had the length of hair now to go donate. I have wanted to do it since I was ten, and my goal is May 2017 to celebrate my own personal milestone and honour a hero I don't know. But until then, thanks for the giveaway
