I do not know if we have the 'Articles' section of LHC anymore, but if we do or have a new version of that, I'd like to suggest that someone with a computer of their own (I don't have one) and with a little extra time might want to make these two articles text and/or images into an Article for people to have access to, in case the link is ever unfindable or taken down.

This is the companion article with an overview of a few wig donation sites that accompanied the main article published by NY Times Style Section Elizabeth Hayt, September 6, 2007

This is the main article, Lather, Rinse, Donate

The truth is people will continue to inquire about LoL here, and will continue to inquire about hair donating and so on, so perhaps, despite LHC's mission to encourage long and healthy hair, it might be supportive in a context to have these articles as a reference. Plus it helps those who do not know about LoL to understand some of the issues.

Just a thought. I would argue the 'responsible' way to do this is to merely print the text in an Article with the link activated (as long as it is active) and say nothing more about LHC's official position. The article kind of gets one to a fairly obvious conclusion all on its own.

Of course, I do understand if this is impossible, but I imagine this is a subject for Stephanie and the moderators to ponder and decide.

PS I would include the date published, the author and of course the NY Times, Style Section for anyone who needs to understand the full sourcing data.
