to get your package if no one is there to sign.


It should be noted that we are all volunteers. The reason we are not able to send thank-you letters to donors is the lack of budget. We use the money to make the wigs. Thanks for your understanding.

You can request a certificate just send an email to donespoircancer@gmail.com with the subject: Certificate and the name of the person. Please be advised that delays may be long.

If you are a hairdresser, you can drop hair at a Beauty Star Bédard store.
If you know a Quebec child with cancer, let us know so we can send him a natural wig for free.


All the donated hair is used here in Quebec, and intended for Quebecers.
