Completed Bucket List Items
Now, I haven’t actually donated before. I’ve thought about donating to Locks of Love several times when I was younger, but that was before I found out that they still make people PAY for wigs. I haven’t done extensive research, but I just figure it’s not worth donating to them if they can’t meet my expectations of a non-profit organization.
Isn’t the whole point of donation and non-profit is to provide for someone who CANNOT afford such luxuries?
I mean if my hair was just being made into a wig and then sold off, it would just be a commodity. Come on, I could sell my hair myself. I don’t need an outside company to take my hair for free and make profit out of it.
There are tons of other great organizations that are actually helping patients with cancer (going through chemotherapy) and lots of patients suffering from hair loss. Again, you’ll have to check the reps on some of these organizations and their transparency, but I think it’s a great way to help someone else find some sort of joy.
Having said that, I probably won’t donate. Instead, I have saved some of my hair for some genetic research for the creation of the perfect human species sometime in the future. Let’s be honest, it’s a far more noble cause.
To tackle this challenge, I started the 1 second a day challenge after looking at some really cool videos online of a man who recorded 1 second of every day of his life.
This is a great way to document the most special moments of every day and also to be able to look back and pinpoint what you have done each day.
This app allows me to appreciate every moment of every day because even the most ordinary things become seemingly beautiful when stitched together to show a timeline of my growth, and I truly have grown through this app. I have been able to find joy and happiness in the smallest moments and when I look back to all my moments that I have collected (not just all of summer, but over many many years), I am so happy that I’ve gone through the effort of collecting these moments.
Disclosure: I have not been paid or compensated in any way for promoting this app. I just think it is fantastic and everyone should get it.
