Beautiful Lengths Fund
Many survivors lose their hair during treatment. This can feel as if you are losing part of yourself, part of who you are, your identity and pride. That is why many people choose to cover their head with a wig or trendy headwear. With the help of the Beautiful Lengths Fund, Think Pink helps survivors who are struggling financially to purchase a wig or fashionable headwear. To do this, we are working together with the social services of the hospitals in Belgium. In this way, we want to support as many people as possible during one of the most difficult times in their lives.
Who can apply for financial support?
Would you like to apply for the financial support of our Beautiful Lengths Fund? Please contact the social worker of the hospital where you are being treated. Both men and women can apply. After approval, social services will hand over your application to Think Pink. We will transfer the amount of 200 euros straight to your bank account, before you purchase your wig. The only thing you need to do is send your proof of purchase to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to our logistics office (Think Pink, Sint-Pietersmolenstraat 23, 8000 Brugge). You can also opt for a trendy piece of headwear by Love Charlie worth 69 €. Please tell the social service at your hospital and they will explain how to proceed.
The financial support is a one-off type of support. This campaign is aimed solely at breast cancer patients who are struggling financially.

Cut your ponytail
Women (and men) are called on to cut their ponytail. Those are sold and used to make wigs. With the profit and support through a few events, the Give to her Fund can permanently refund wigs.
Since the take-off of the action in 2008 more than 5,300 women were helped financially.
It is possible to donate your ponytail (with a minimum length of 30 cm) throughout the year. You can request a special envelope on the website www.geefomhaar.be in which you can send your ponytail for free. Or pass by one of the many hairdressers that participate: they offer you your new haircut for free.
