Yes, we know the world wants to send their hair too - and you all will!
We already have hair coming in now! First from all salons in Louisiana,
Mississippi, Alabama to a warehouse near Lake Pontchartrain.
And Monday, we're told we will have a warehouse address for all Florida
salons in Lee County to send to all of you.
And we are dividing carefully where the hair boxes go so that we don't
drown generous space donors in hair! We have over 200,000 pounds of hair
ready to send now on the web site!
There are huge student volunteer groups coming together to help make the

Thanks to ALL of you for the HUGE HUGE outpouring of support and
participation to help these beaches! We've been telling reporters and it

We have lots of boom ready to go to where they tell us it will be most
effective. If you want to see what "boom" looks like check out our
