Pantene Beautiful Lengths & Walgreens Partner to Celebrate Program’s 10th Anniversary
OREANDA-NEWS. October 04, 2016. To help celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, Walgreens will be donating \\$50,000 to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund this October.
Ten years ago, Pantene created the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, which strives to create free, real-hair wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment. With the help of charitable men, women and children, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program has created more than 46,000 wigs to-date. Most recently, the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund was created for those who want to support the program, but are unable to donate their hair.
“We’re so thankful that so many people have supported the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program for 10 years, and are grateful to Walgreens for their gracious donation to help create these wigs. Women have a very special relationship with their hair—it plays a huge role in defining who they are as individuals,” says Jodi Allen, Vice President of P&G Hair Care & Color for North America Pantene. “This program has inspired so many to make selfless donations over the years, and it’s because of them, that women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments are able to feel more like themselves every day.”
- Pantene Beautiful Lengths and Walgreens encourage everyone to contribute to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Fund. Contributions made to the Fund go directly to helping create free, real-hair wigs for women battling cancer. Visit www.gcfdn.org/pantene for more details. You can also find more information and Pantene products at your local Walgreens.
- Share your donation on social media and encourage your friends and family to participate by using #BeautifulLengths, tagging @Pantene and @Walgreens.
