Donation to Pantene Beautiful Lengths=New Haircut for my Trip to LA thanks to Coffeemate in less than 12 hours :)

Well yesterday was my BIG day.  I went to a new salon and had 10 inches of my hair cut off. 

I am donating it to Pantene Beautiful Lengths. 

At first I was going to donate to Locks of Love, which don't get me wrong is an awesome organization...but I decided to search for some place that just donates to women with cancer...and I found Pantene Beautiful Lengths.

Part of the reason I decided to donate is I am a Cervical Cancer Survivor and wanted to make a difference in a cancer patients life.  To make them feel beautiful as they battle the beast known as cancer.  And this month is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month.  I had my local paper attend my haircut so they could report on my donation and the importance of getting a pap to help detect changes before it has the opportunity to turn into full blown cancer.

I feel so empowered!!

Now if the Weather here would just cooperate so I can make my flight to LA in the EARLY morning for my trip of a lifetime thanks to Coffee-mate!  We are in a Winter Weather Advisory -with up to 5 inches of snow expected :( . They have changed our flight to a different airport as of tonight - that hopefully will have the ability to get us flown out during the storm.  Which now means the boys have to be at daycare around 3:45am - Yes I said A.M.  Wow!  Early morning here...then an hour drive to the new airport...then on our way to LA!!!!

So everyone say a prayer that the weather works so I take this much needed trip - plus when I get back I will blog all about it!!

OH!  Everyone keep an eye out for a great new giveaway very soon thanks to Granola Snacks.  It will be for a huge helping of 5 of their delicous 9oz bags of granola

Stayed tuned for my Info.....


  1. I love hearing about people donating their hair! It makes me smile! Good luck on your trip! How cool of an opportunity is that?!

  2. That's so awesome, Colleen! I had never heard of the Beautiful lengths program. Do they have any restrictions about whether or not they can accept hair that has been dyed? I've heard conflicting reports about Locks of Love in that regard.
    I hope your trip to LA went well!

  3. I hope you are in LA already! And. Um? You HAVE a daycare that is open at that time? We would be in trouble here! lol
    It's awesome you donated all that hair! :)

  4. Great question Sami - according to the Pantene Site - Hair may be colored with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. It cannot be bleached, permanently colored or chemically treated. By the way every - my trip was awesome!!! I will be blogging about different aspects of the trip in the following weeks and a few giveaways!

  5. You are AWESOME...both for donating your hair, and for drawing publicity to such a worthy cause. I'm so proud to be part of your blog world. Rock on!
