Reuse of Hair

A few weeks ago someone posted a message about ideas for reusing hair 
from beauty parlors, etc.  I saw a story on 20/20 (?) about a 
non-profit organization that collects hair from beauty parlors and 
creates wigs for children with a disease that causes permanent hair 
loss.  I think the organization is called "Love for Locks" and is 
based in Florida.  The hair must be in a pony tail/braid when it's 
cut and it must be at least 8 - 10 inches long. If you're working 
with a particular salon, you might recommend that they contact the 
organization to participate. From the newscast it sounded as though 
many people would be willing to donate their hair if they were aware 
of the cause.
