I used to have really long hair, down to my butt. I had long hair for years. I always intended to donate it to Locks of Love, I just hated the thought of cutting 12″ off! Until one day, I bit the bullet and did it. 12″ gone.
Then I did it again, about 3 years later:
I was very proud of my donation. I have really thick, healthy hair, and I hope they were able to make a fantastic wig for a kid out of it. It makes me happy that I was able to do it not only once, but twice. I received a little postcard to thank me for the donation, and I have it framed. It hangs next to my college diploma at home (although both are currently in storage in the US).
So when I saw this story, it made my heart happy. An 8 year old boy grew his hair out to donate it, putting up with bullies while he did it. He’s awesome, and quite the inspiration!
