big wig day

"On January 2, 2016, I had a case of the post holiday blues.  I posted a “wigged-out” selfie on Facebook.  I was kidding when I wrote Happy National Big Wig Day! However, the joyful responses I received sent my blues packing.  Then a light bulb flashed:  Share the silliness and create a charity forum." - Patty Sharkey, founder National Big Wig Day

Kindness + Silliness = Fabulous "Fun"raising

"We believe you are the “Big Wig” of  your life.  You are not your housing situation, clothing size, zip code or paycheck. You are fabulous!" - 

Cheers, The Big Wig Team.
