There are numerous programs set up to help women with cancer find wigs, from The Wig Exchange to EBeauty Community Inc. The latter is a program that also allows for the exchange of wigs from donors to donees, and provides a tax deductible receipt for donors, as noted by EBeauty.

Donors can get in touch about a donation by emailing EBeauty. Another option is to send a letter to the organization at EBeauty, Inc., 1350 Eye Street Northwest, Suite P-15, Washington, D.C. 20005. Donors are encouraged to send a wig if they do not live near one of the drop-off locations.

EBeauty has drop-off locations where donors can take wigs to give in person. These locations are local hospitals and charities that have partnered with EBeauty on the East Coast, including the Smith Center for Healing and the Arts, Sibley Hospital and Eivind and Hans of Georgetown in Washington, D.C. There are a few other drop-off locations in Maryland and Virginia.
