Thank you to Wigs for Kids and their staff that help us through the set up to this event, providing us with the tools needed, as well as showing support with including us on their website and their Facebook this year.

A HUGE thank you to all the content creators that were part of Hair Fair 2014. It is through your creativity, generosity and enthusiasm that this event is so popular and such a huge success. Thank you all, not only for your donations from every style sold, but also your creativity in decorating the booths, as well as sharing the knowledge of the event with your customer base.
Special thanks to Linden Lab for the care and quality that they give to us each and every year. It is a pleasure to work with the team from Linden Lab that are part of the process of hiring the sims we use each year. A warm thank you to Dee Linden, who is our go to co-ordinator, who goes above and beyond each year to make it as seamless as possible.
Special thanks to Jessica Lyon and her team at Firestorm who are so kind as to make Hair Fair their Message of the day on their log in screen, that lets so many more residents know of this event when it is truly helpful to get as much information out as possible. It really is a kindness they extend to us, and we are very grateful that they do.
To all the Bloggers that cover the event, the Early Access bloggers who do as much prior to the event’s opening, by letting their readers know in advance that it is coming, who help us promote the photo contest and Bandana Day, and just through their commitment to the event, show such wonderful posts throughout the two weeks and let us reach an audience we may never get without them. To all the bloggers that didn’t make it to early access and still covered the event, because of their passion and dedication to their readers, the designers they follow, and also for personal reasons that make Wigs for Kids something important to them also. We are all very grateful for your work through this time, and all year.
Hair Fair Committee
There is so much praise I wish to pour on Mel Vanbeeck.. His builds, his scripting, his support and patience is just immeasurable. He holds us together in more ways than one, and it is due to his knowledge of so many of the inner workings of SL that make it as lag free as possible. He has a lot of time for all of us during this event, and the many months of work prior, so thank you so much for everything.
Whimsy Winx is a treasure, she does a lot of things behind the scenes that help run this event each year, and in the past has done a lot more in the front with building and so on. She has a flare for design and layout that astounds me each and every day, and it is a big thank you to her for all her help during and leading up to the event each year.
Both of these people are the greatest team I know, and I am honored to be part of theirs each year.
Thank you to everyone that makes Hair Fair a success that it is, and thank you to all those people who visited, shopped and shared, and made it another year of giving to Wigs for Kids, because that total is because of all of you, so thank you truly.
Once Wigs for Kids has their money processed in full, we will post a receipt in the website.
