Maite Perroni Hosts Pantene Beautiful Length Luncheon
Last week, I joined a group of local blogueras and influencers for a luncheon with great purpose. Pantene, one of the world’s leading hair care brands, has joined the renowned singer and actress, Maite Perroni, to support the Beautiful Lengths hair donation program during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
As we were enjoying the lovely luncheon and the equally lovely company, I took a moment to find out a bit about this program. Created in 2006, Pantene Beautiful Lengths inspires people to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair to create free wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments. This is a very personal subject to me, so it was very touching to hear from Maite about the inspiration for her support of this program.
“I’m very proud to join Pantene in support of this great cause that is so close to my heart! One of the most difficult moments of my life was when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. I realized that this disease comes without knocking on your door. I invite you to grow and donate your healthy hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, and give the gift of hope to women who are in the fight for their lives.”
For those who don’t know, real-hair wigs are extremely expensive and cancer patients often do not have the resources to buy them. What’s cool about this program is that through the American Cancer Society, they distributes free Pantene Beautiful Lengths wigs through a network of wig banks nationwide. To date, the program has received over 450,000 hair donations through the generosity of many men, women and children and more than 24,000 real-hair wigs have been donated to female cancer patients in need.
Definitely recommend that you check out this awesome program…and see how you can also support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. También, a big gracias to Pantene for hosting this luncheon and for inviting Las Gringas!
