Adorned with Love

When I started middle school I befriended this gorgeous, gregarious, and downright confident girl. There wasn't a person she did not captivate. Every girl wanted to be her friend and every boy (brave enough) wanted to date her. S, (that's what I will call her) had Alopecia, an autoimmune skin disease that caused her to be completely hairless. S,  did not let the disease define her. Her unyielding approach to being positive left me (till this day) awe-struck.  S was an inspiration to me and countless other girls who was blessed enough to be in her presence. So when I heard about Haute Hair Company -Follea's  philanthropic happenings as it correlates to the disease that  has touched me - I wanted to blog about it. 

 In honor of International Alopecia Day, taking place on August 4, and September's Alopecia Awareness Month, Follea Inc., the leading designer and manufacturer of natural, European wigs and hairpieces, including the renowned GripperTM Alopecia Wig, will give away 10,000 free Alopecia bracelets that bear the phrase, "Someone I love has Alopecia" embossed on it. Since I, too love a person with Alopecia the bracelet just seems so poignant. Not everyone has the confidence of S (although I wish we all did!) so supporting both men and women who live with this disease is a small gesture that will have a huge impact on so many lives. So remember mon petites, no gift is too small and this is one charity that is worth it! 

The first 10,000 people to send a self-addressed stamped envelope to Follea at the address below, will receive a "Someone I love has Alopecia" bracelet. For more information, call 888-4-FOLLEA or 310-858-0100 or visit
