Mattel is shaving barbie's head bald . . . for a good cause.  They decided to start manufacturing bald barbie dolls for girls who are dealing with hair loss from chemo treatments for cancer, alopecia, and other conditions.

The dolls won't be in stores, Mattel will be donating them to children's hospitals and the National Alopecia Areata Foundation. Which means that United Regional may or may not get any of the dolls, but Cook's Children's Hospital probably will.

Mattel decided to make the dolls because of a Facebook group called "Beautiful and Bald Barbie!  Let's see if we can get it made."  The group has more than 150,000 likes.

The photo is a mock-up the Facebook put together to show what a bald, beautiful barbie would look like.
