Wigs for Kids

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. There was great pride in seeing Hair Fair 2014 showcased on their Facebook amongst other RL events, and we really do appreciate all that they do to show that support to us each year. Thank you to our contact Andrew , who is a pleasure to liaise with in these matters.

Hair Designers

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.

Linden Lab

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.

Firestorm Team

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.

Bloggers

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.

Hair Fair 2014 – Bandana Day 27th July LAST DAY OPEN

Bandana Day July 27th

 

Today is the day that those all over the grid remove their hair to show they care. Not removing your hair doesn’t mean you care any less, but this is a fun tradition we started in 2007 and it has grown every year since.

Bandanas are created from people all over SL, by creators, bloggers and Second Life residents, who just feel inspired to open up a photo editing program and do their part to help us help Wigs for Kids.

The Bandanas are only available at Hair Fair 2014 and once the event is over they are never purchasable again. The bandanas are sold for 50L and you can transfer them to friends, people even have bandana wearing parties, and events that also help bring awareness to Hair Fair and Wigs for Kids.

It is the last day of this huge event, and we hope to see you there. You can find one Bandana booth on every sim at Hair Fair, most just a few booths down from the landing point. Each booth has the same bandanas in it, so once you find one, you have access to them all.

Hair Fair 2014 ENDS SOON Don’t Miss Out

HF2014 Map

Only a few days left of Hair Fair 2014, so it is time to do another run through all four sims and find any goodies you haven’t already snapped up. Remember every single purchase from the wonderful creators at this event will donate a portion to Wigs for Kids. The work that Wigs for Kids does to help children cope with hairloss, not just in the wigs systems created for them, but the overall self esteem they help them hold onto,and in some cases get back is a remarkable gift that you through every purchase at our event can help them achieve.

Wigs for Kids have also helped us spread the word by promoting Hair Fair on their Facebook and Website pages, which is really supportive and encouraging to us, to have them support what we do. Make sure you take your friends along and also get your bandanas for Bandana Day on the 27th of July.
