Locks of Love
My daughter has been growing her hair for only one reason. So she could donate it to a child who needs some. Locks of Love is a great organization that helps kids who have lost their hair by making wigs and hair pieces.
My oldest daughter donated her hair a few years ago and provided the inspiration for our next daughter to grow out her hair in order to donate it. Finally, after a really long time growing it out so it wouldn't be too short when we cut it, (hair has to be at least 10 inches long in a ponytail) we were able to go and chop it off.
I love it that she planned and reached a goal of her own choosing. She is one of the greatest people I know. Not because of the hair, but because of her little personality and spirit and charm.
