Conversations/Giving Back Piecing Together On Rite teams with the nonprofit Children With Hair Loss to provide kids with custom-fit hairpieces—and a life-changing esteem boost. —TRACY MORIN A n eight-year-old girl with burns that cover more than 80 percent of her body soldiers through 29 surgeries. A Miss America hopeful struggles with alopecia. A child with trichotillomania, who compulsively pulls out her hair, suffers from shame and depression. These are just some examples of those who are helped by Children With Hair Loss (CWHL), which provides free custommade and -fitted hairpieces to more than 300 minors each year with help from On Rite (onritedirect.com). The nonprofit, founded by Regina Villemure in honor of her niece—in chemo for leukemia at three years old and now a mom of three—has long worked with On Rite to make the human-hair pieces, but the two factions cemented an official partnership Yo ng human-hair igs in 2009. “Regina’s passion is contagious, and Young recipients of h man hair wigs from Children With Hair Loss proudly show off their new locks. when you see how hair loss affects children, it’s heartbreaking,” explains Rhonda McCarthy, Director of Business Development for On Rite. “There’s such a need—we wanted to partner with them, and we haven’t looked back.” GERMANY I don’t know of anything else that can instantly change children’s lives like these hairpieces.” On Rite provides monetary donations and holds auctions to raise money throughout the year, and its employees have even donated their own hair to the cause. CWHL, with the mission of “covering young heads to heal young hearts,” also receives help from On Rite through sponsorship of events like the annual charity ball in October; this year’s will feature a hair fashion show, with CWHL recipients as models, that’ll ask the audience to determine which are wearing hairpieces. “I don’t know anything else that can instantly change children’s lives like these hairpieces,” Villemure marvels. “It’s amazing how hair can give them back their identity and put them back together.” Stylists are a necessary part of the equation, too: They can donate their services by fitting, trimming and styling the pieces for local children; sell paper hearts at the salon to raise money for the cause; or host cut-a-thons to donate hair (visit childrenwithhairloss.us for more info). “Just donating your time and expertise is a small thing, but it’s life-changing for these children,” McCarthy asserts. “As so many in the beauty industry know, helping others isn’t just something we should do—it’s something we have to do.” KID HAIR CARE W W W.
