Pantene Beautiful Lengths

Did you know that is takes 6, 8 inch ponytails, yes 6 pontails to make 1 wig??

My sister just donated her hair after growing it for months! What a great life changing event to be a part of for another women!

When you make a Pantene hair donation to Beautiful Lengths, you are contributing your hair to women who have lost their hair during their battle with cancer.

The Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths campaign collects hair donations from throughout the United States and Canada. The hair collected is turned into wigs and distributed FREE to women suffering from the loss of their hair due to the effects of chemotherapy needed to fight the cancer that is ravaging their bodies.
The hair collected by Pantene is crafted into beautiful natural hair wigs. Working in collaboration with the American Cancer Society
, The Entertainment Industry Foundation and Hair U Wear, the wigs are given to women battling this terrible disease through one of the American Cancer Society’s many wig banks.
The average price of a well made human hair wig
is approximately $1,200 and most insurance companies cover only a small percentage of the cost, if anything at all.

For many of the women receiving a wig from the Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths campaign, the chances of having a well made human hair wig seemed impossible as the illness often causes finances to be exhausted.

Together, we are making a difference!

Easy Chicken Pasta

What's For Supper Ya'll?

White Beans, Pasta and Chicken
8 ounces dried cavatappi, fusilli, rotini, ditaloni, or other short pasta tubes
1 15- to 19-ounce can cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
12 ounces cooked chicken, shredded
1/4 cup snipped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley sprigs (optional - I usually skip it)
Olive oil (optional - but I recommend at least a little for moisture)
1. In a large saucepan, cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and set aside.
2. In a blender or food processor, combine 3/4 cup of the beans and the chicken broth. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Place bean puree in pan used for cooking the pasta; bring to boiling. Return pasta to pan.
3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon hot olive oil for 1 minute. Add tomatoes; cook for 1 minute. Add the remaining beans, shredded chicken, snipped parsley, pepper and salt. Heat through.
4. Add the tomato mixture to hot pasta; toss to cost. Top with parsley sprigs and additional olive oil. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
