The Beautiful and Bald Movement
"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
The Beautiful and Bald Movement has been the main force in convincing two major toy companies to produce bald dolls in support of children living with hair loss due to chemotherapy, alopecia, trichotillomania and other auto-immune diseases. We started the Facebook page Beautiful and Bald Barbie! Let's see if we can get it made. This gained support extremely fast, as we spread across social media and by early January had hit the media in TV, print and online across the world. We and our supporters stayed steady and firm in our expression that a bald fashion doll would make a possitive difference in the lives of millions of children. Please check the "Bald Dolls Update" page for further news on the dolls.
We have expanded our efforts in helping reduce the stigma of baldness in children and women by starting The Beautiful and Bald Movement as an official non-profit organization. Complete in New Jersey and filing for federal status, our goal and purpose is to help reduce the sigma of hair loss in women and children, bring encouragement to face the world, head high and with a smile. Showing that true beauty comes from within and is not dependent upon your hair or lack of hair.
We are dedicated to raising self esteem in people about who they are inside, not to rely on the outside for your self worth.
