A friend of mine is a knit designer working for a famous Japanese apparel company, after she had suffered breast cancer (sadly 😦 ), she cut her hair and donated it to Non Profit Organization who make special wigs for people who lost their hairs and need wigs due to anticancer drugs. As you need to donate hair at least 30 cm length, it is not easy to donate many times for a certain period. That is why she started her own charity to knit heart shaped charms with knitting yarn that is factory waste of apparel companies and ask people to buy them at 200 yen.
I liked her idea so I ask her to make some and now we put them on the counter of our shop. Check them out when you are here !
