The Adopt-A-Kid program is specially designed so that individuals, groups or schools can directly help a child in need at Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan.
By participating, you or your organization can help a child or teen become a recipient of a free hair prosthesis and services. In return, you will receive a certificate of recognition for your participation in the program, a before and after photo of the child, and most importantly, the gratitude of the child or teen whom you have so generously helped.
What is the cost of the Adopt-A-Kid Program?
The cost to sponsor a child in the Adopt-A-Kid program is $1,000.
The fair market value of a hair prosthesis is $1,500 – $3,000.
Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization.
What does the sponsorship include?
You are the source of support for a child or teen. Your help benefits a kid socially, emotionally and physically. Your sponsorship helps them to resume their lives with family and friends at school and other activities. The kids and parents also learn how to care and maintain the wigs.
Your gift provides:
- A wig
- Training on wig care and maintenance
- Wig shampoo and conditioner
- A netted cap to be worn under the wig to keep it secure
- A head form to place the wig on when not in use
- Tee pins to secure the wig to the Styrofoam head
- A wire wig stand to place the wig on after shampooing it
- A chinstrap to secure wig when styling
- A wig comb and stand
- A sleep cap to be used at night
- a wig box to store the wig and supplies
Will there be contact with the sponsored child?
To participate in our program, we ask each recipient to acknowledge your sponsorship by writing a thank you letter. Or you can remain anonymous, if you desire. No direct contact will be made with your sponsored child or teen except through Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan.
