Variety’s Princess Charlotte Alopecia Program July 25, 2014 10:27 PM - Variety International

Variety’s Princess Charlotte Alopecia Program supports children with alopecia across Australia. Through this program, Variety aims to instill a sense of confidence, independence and self-esteem for kids with alopecia through the provision of specialised wigs. Helping kids with the condition to take part in all the activities they enjoy and feel confident around their peers again – a priceless gift!

At the average cost of $3,500, a specialised human hair wig is cost prohibitive for many families – this is where Variety steps in to help.

In addition to granting specialised wigs, Variety takes donations of hair to be made into specialised wigs for individuals affected by the condition as well.

What is Alopecia?

Alopecia is an autoimmune condition that affects hair growth on the scalp and entire body, which results in minor or complete hair loss with slim chances of regrowth, for which there is no known cure.

Facts

-There is no known cure for the condition.
-Donations of hair to Variety go to making wigs for individuals with alopecia (It takes between 10-25 ponytails to make just one wig!)
-Alopecia can have a devastating psychological impact, but your support helps to give kids back their self-esteem and confidence.
