How can I help?        


Creative Kindness
To the world, you may be just someone, but to someone, you may be the world. Creative Kindness, an outreach of Nancy's Notions, gives ideas, patterns and outlets for community service projects, including Cancer Patient headwear and more!

Locks of Love
Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children across the U.S. under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss. If you would like to donate your cut hair (10" or more) contact them for a mail-in kit. A great idea for people with long hair, who are going to get theirs cut anyway.

Look Good, Feel Better
Look Good...Feel Better (LGFB) is a free, national public service program created from the concept that if a woman with cancer can be helped to look good, her improved self- esteem will help her approach her disease and treatment with greater confidence. The program is open to all women and teen (boys and girls, 13-17) cancer patients actively undergoing treatment for cancer. LGFB programs are available in Spanish in six cities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

Hats Off for Cancer
We collect brand new, cool & funky hats for children with cancer. This is our way of helping to make the lives of children with cancer, a bit brighter. We distribute the hats to hospitals, cancer clinics and camps across Canada.
