While we were I noticed references to real hair wigs. The wigs were made from donations. Over the next several years, I donated two 12inch ponytails, even though they were very salt/pepper shaded. They said that they match all colors and if they didn't have what was needed, the donation could be colored.

This was some 15yrs ago, but my g-daughter donated to Wigs for Kids in the name of her 10yo friend who died of brain cancer.

from google: Currently, the three biggest charities in the US that accept hair donations are Locks of Love, Wigs for Kids (Em & my donations), and Pantene Beautiful Lengths

PS: The girls on a hospital visit to cheer up the kids' chemo ward, the year before Matilda passed away.
