Loyola Hosts Successful Angel Cuts for Kids Event

On Wednesday, October 24th, 2018, St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School hosted its first ever Angel Cuts for Kids, inviting staff, students and families to donate their hair for a good cause.

Loyola Cosmetology teacher, Bonnie March and Phys-Ed Department Head, Daniela Orlando, along with their students, worked diligently to set up, raise donations and help faciliate the event.

Department Head of ESL and Moderns, Natalie Jones, also teamed up to raise awareness and donate hair for the cause.

Natalie, who has alopecia universalis, which is the rarest form of alopecia, has been a source of inspiration for many of the students and staff in the Loyola school community. Natalie frequently speaks openly about her condition, her hair loss journey, and how it has empowered her to speak about her identity, and promote positive mind and body image in the school.

The Angel Cuts for Kids event was held in the school's gymnasium, and there were games, raffle prizes donated by the community, food and music.

By the end of the night, 25 ponytails were collected for donation!

Congratulations to St. Ignatius of Loyola students, staff and community on a successful and inspirational event!
