We are huge believers in giving back to the community and trying to make a difference, no matter how big or small. At O’wow, we are not only determined to provide you with a healthy and safe alternative to mainstream chemical-rich salon hair smoothing treatments, but also support a charity organization very close to our hearts, The Little Princess Trust. With the purchase of O’wow hair smoothing treatment kit, you will not only be getting gorgeous-looking hair at the comfort of your home, but also help us support The Little Princess Trust with their outstanding charity work for young people. We donate $1 for each O’wow Kit sold to the organization.
What does Little Princess Trust do?
The Little Princess Trust is a non-profit organization operating since 2006. The organization is devoted to providing real hair wigs for children and young people under the age of 24 who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatments or other health conditions. The best part is that The Little Princess Trust is also funding life-saving research projects into childhood cancers, aimed at finding less toxic treatments for pediatric cancers. The ultimate goal of The Little Princess Trust is to enable the research institutes to find the causes and treatments of childhood cancers so that one day there will no longer be a need for such an organization. To this day, they have supplied over 8000 real hair wigs to the children and invested around $6 million in ground-breaking research into childhood cancers. Hundreds of donors assist The Little Princess Trust by donating their hair every month. The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, is also among the wonderful people who support the charity work done by the organization. We hope this will inspire many others to show the same kind of support to the charity.
The Little Princess Trust has a vast network of salons that work to fit the wigs free of cost, according to the recipient’s requirements at a salon close to them. This way, more children and young people can benefit from the work done by the organization. The staff at the salons works hard to match the color and the style of the wig to the original hair or create whatever style a child wants so they can leave the salon with a precious smile on their face.
To this day, the organization has provided a total grant of over £2,800,000 for practical work and research for the welfare of children. The academics and institutes involved in research are working hard to find better treatments for childhood cancers by providing access to new treatments through clinical trials and also by improving existing treatments. The process of funding is very rigorous and vigilant to ensure that every penny raised is spent well. Due to their outstanding work, The Little Princess Trust received the Queen’s award for voluntary services in 2012.
Help us make a difference
We find the noble and constructive work done by The Little Princess Trust extremely valuable and strive to aid them in their journey to a better life for sick children and young people. Thus, for each sold O’wow hair smoothing treatment kit, we donate $1 to The Little Princess Trust. Our customers may find solace in the fact that every time they place an order with us they are contributing to a very momentous charity activity. Our goal is to donate at least $30,000 during the first year of our operation and we are counting on our customers to show support. So, let’s make this happen together.
