It is a cool trend for men to shave their heads bald, especially when they are already starting to go bald but for young boys, it is not the trend. Boys who suffer from hair loss due to Alopecia, Trichotillomania or chemo are often stared at, teased and misunderstood.
We are thrilled that we will see strong figures for young boys to relate to during play that have no hair, like them. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have the new GI Joe action figures in relation to the movie be bald with awareness information on the box and a portion of proceeds go toward finding a cure for Alopecia and/or pediatric cancer?
Hasbro, Inc. Please help spread awareness that boys without hair can grow up to be anything! They are brave and bold, just like GI Joe.

Letter to

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Hasbro, Inc..

Hasbro, Inc. Please Include awareness of hair loss in children from chemo or alopecia to your packaging of the new bald GI Joe action figures that will be released in 2012/13. We also ask that you would donate a portion of proceeds to the national Alopecia Areata Foundation or a pediatric cancer research or treatment facility or organization.
