"I stumbled across your website earlier this evening and was so intrigued I spent most of the night reading all the articles. Awesome! You have done an outstanding job and I just had to tell you how much I've enjoyed it. I even submitted a picture (unusual for me). I'm 62 now and can still remember all the hurtful comments and teasing I was subjected to as a child. Thanks!"
"Hello,...Thank you for hosting such a great site"
"Very entertaining and informative website, with a very good message. I've enjoyed browsing through the pages."
"Thank you for this site. Both myself and my daughter are red heads and, as you know, life as a "ginger" is NOT an easy one. Oh the tempers we have! LOL."
"I don't think it was a coincidence for me to find your website. I am a redhead and am overjoyed that there is a wonderful little website dedicated to us! I am also very grateful for your prayer page. Thank you for being open about the spiritual side of life and embracing the giving of advice in that area. God Bless!."
"What a fantastic site!....Anyhow, I just want to say thank you for bringing my focus back to my little [redhead] girl, so much appreciate all the 'wise' words in this site. May the Lord continue to bless and use you as you do HIS work. Amen."
"I very much enjoyed your site!!! THANK YOU!!!"
"You have a really great website...Keep up the great work :)"
"...you are to be thanked and congratulated for such a refreshing and wholesome site...I know your site is a lot of work, but keep it going."
"I just wanted to say that this is a fabulous website and I really enjoyed the lists of famous redheads."
"....I had to check out your site. My Dad was a redhead, I have red highlights, and I married a redhead.....
...Great site, great concept!"

"Love the site!"
"I'm so happy I stumbled onto this website."
"I am a redhead. And I find this website completely and utterly offending. You speak of redheads not as people, but as, say a dog. We are just like everyone else. And you 'raising redheads' does not give you the right to stereotype."

"I love your site. I am a half-ginger myself. I have a red beard..."
[Note by Deb: This reader comment reminded me to tell you about my "Red Beards" gallery page too!]
"I have bookmarked the website and told my mother about it. She is a redhead as well...and I will be visiting the website quite frequently as I love your tips, jokes and very useful information. I have been looking for a website like yours for sometime now and I am very glad to have found it!"
"Hey, I'm a red and was just visiting your site- and checked out the Famous Reds page....[mentions redhead actress]...Thanks for the consideration, and btw, love the site!"
".... It's so wonderful that someone made a site where all the glorious redheads can be celebrated! I've really enjoyed looking at all the photos that have been submitted."

"I love this website! As a fellow ginger this just makes me laugh! And I love it! It's all so true, and funny! I love how you incorporate God into all of this. I do get lots of redhead jokes and I used to hate them, but now I just laugh and sometimes make my own. This website was an awesome idea! Thank you!"
"I really love this site because this can grow the appreciation and honoring to the red-haired people out there. I am Indonesian ethnic Chinese and I really love to see those people with their beautifully rare hair color which I never seen one of them. Too bad there are so little of them but never appreciated for their beautiful fiery hair. I hope people will start to accept and respect the "gingers" more. "
"Hi!! I love your site!!...Keep up the good work!!"
"Just a mommy of a redhead.... LOVE the website!"

"I found your site when I was searching for Irish Setters. I find it very interesting and what a great theme for a site. It got me thinking about all the different and famous Red Heads there actually were, including my son and daughter-in-law. Hopefully I will have a red head grandchild some day. Your site is very interesting and engaging, thanks for sharing."
"Wow, I'm so impressed with your site about redheads! I'm a natural redhead and have never read so much information on redheads in one place. Thank you for putting this site together! When my son first asked, "What are the dots on my face?" I told him that's where the Angels kissed me. And when he first drew pictures of me he told me my hair wasn't red, it was orange! So funny...Thanks again... I've enjoyed your site! :)"
"Hey, I love your website. I am a female and I love red-hair men."
"Thank you for your site, as my son has "orange" hair and it is hard to do what is right for him regarding things like skincare in the sun, and (sadly) being teased. I will definitely revisit your site regularly. Regards,"
"I came across this website by chance and I have enjoyed reading it. I am a natural redhead..."
"Hi there!...so nice to find this community, can't believe I didn't find you before."
"Wow! I just love this website. Thanks so much for making it. I am so glad to know much more about fellow redheads! Please keep up the great work!"
"Love your website and it is because of how you put it together. I will promise to visit many times and pass it on!"
"I am a natural redhead and gave birth to three redheaded boys. I love the website. It's fun and about time having a website just for us redheads. Thank You! I am looking forward to visiting this site often and sending pix of my gorgeous boys!"
"The reason, I'm assuming, that not a single person has clicked a [Like] thumbs on this ["Statistics"] page is your heavy handed use of P.I.O.M.A. statistics. This is an emotional subject. When our actions are driven purely by emotions we waive bye-bye to anything remotely resembling objectivity. see your so called FBI statistic stating that all children have 25% chance of being molested for further examples of statements bereft of any trace of objectivity. Why not go the whole nine and just tell young parents "If you have children somebody has raped them" that should get some attention. (P.ulled I.t O.ut of M.y *ss)"
--- [Note by Deb: Reader comment about the "Keep Them Safe" - "Statistics" page. This IS an emotional subject. Facts are still facts. They're presented to motivate people to get INVOLVED and DO something to protect kids in their communities. Sobering, yes. Upset? - then act!]
"I love your site so much!"
"I've enjoyed your website and celebration of Red Heads. Thank you!"

"I am a freckled-face ginger myself, and I love the fact that I just came across this website!"

"I found this site after trying to find books for my beautiful redheaded 7-year-old grandson after picking him up from school and finding him upset about being teased about his hair, again. He is smart, athletic, sensitive and loving, but it still hurts his self esteem. This is a wonderful website with lots of ideas. Thank you so much!"
"Just wanted to say I love this site. It's nice to see that young redhead kids can come somewhere to feel normal and not alone."
"Your website is really unique and I love seeing all the pics of my fellow red heads! Thanks for putting the time and effort into this site. We really appreciate it!"
"As a redheaded fellow - I love the site, and all of the quality information, and fun facts on our kind! You do redheads a service."
"I found this website one day because I was curious about how I got my red hair -- it's helped a lot! After reading the "Genes" section, I asked my parents about it. Turns out I have lots of family who had red hair! Also, I checked out the makeup section, which has also helped me out a lot. This website is just plain out awesome!"

"This is my first visit to your site, and it's great! What a good idea to make this site. I am a redhead myself, come from dark haired parents. Have 3 boys - one dirty blond, one has really red hair, and the youngest who's almost 2 had more red at birth but is more like mine now, strawberry blond. I know what it was like for myself growing up with red hair and reading pages on your site brings back memories lol.....Love your site!!"
"Hello. I love your site and am a redhead who visits it all the time! [shares about a redhead athlete] ... Keep up the great work! "
"Awesome website! I'm one of the many who's in their 40's and my once bright red hair is starting to fade....[discusses henna hair color...]"
"You have done a really great job with this website, especially putting God in it also. It has given me a lot of cool information of my redhead self! I think it's so sad that people bully people for a hair color and have all these stereotypes and superstitions about them. Redheads are like everyone else: some are good, some are bad. Also I would like to say to all of my fellow redheads: be proud of your hair for it's the rarest natural hair color:)"
"I just want you to know that I am ginger and I find that [the web pages] really offensive, so please take your website down for I will not stand those kind of nicknames. I get bullied enough as it is and I don't want you making it f___ worse. If you were ginger, then you would see that your website is really offensive."
"Thank you so much for posting make-up tips for redheads! I will definitely try these out. Thank you for all of the work you've put into this site."
"Thanks for a great, informative website. I just found it after a Google search. Our sweet one-year-old boy is a redhead which was a bit of a surprise after having a blond and brunette. My husband and I have become more conscious of negative comments to redheads...still somewhat shocking to me. Yes, we have had strangers ask if he is OURS and where the red hair comes from! I look forward to reading though your website during Evan's naptime today!! Thank you!"
