Our Mission

Bald Girls Do Lunch is ending the stigma, shame and secrecy for women and girls with the autoimmune skin disease, alopecia  areata. We build self-acceptance and self-esteem. Bald Girls puts women back in the driver's seat of their lives to head out the door with heads held high.

Our Campaign Partner for Alopecia Areata Awareness


Pro volleyball player, Deja McClendon, is joining Bald Girls Do Lunch® this season as her chosen nonprofit. Deja is promoting awareness and education about autoimmune alopecia areata in the Athletes Unlimited's Athlete Causes initiative.

As someone who lives with alopecia, Deja has first-hand knowledge of the condition and a passion to use her role as an athlete for the cause, a 501c3 nonprofit.

“I really love the Bald Girls cause and how they restore confidence. This alopecia sisterhood provides an outlet to express themselves and talk through the stigma of being a bald woman,says Deja who was diagnosed with alopecia when she was 12.
