As our wigs are typically customized for each recipient, and are of high-quality so as to fit well and last, we spend an average of $1000 per recipient. The expensive nature of our mission coupled with the tremendous amount of need has meant that we are on facing a backlog of applications at the moment while we work to raise the funds necessary to grant wigs. We encourage you to apply, and applications are considered in the order in which they are received. However, we want to be up front in letting you know that you can expect to wait some months before you will be considered for a wig.
