Twinkletoes has been growing her hair out for two years. She decided she wanted to donate it to help make wigs for cancer patients. Too many people in our lives have been affected by this terrible disease and unfortunately, have had to resort to wearing wigs.
In order to make a donation, her hair had to be at least 10" to donate to Locks of Love, a program that collects hair and makes wigs specifically for children who are cancer patients. We didn't have quite 10" but I couldn't take another morning or evening of screaming and tears while we were brushing her hair. The alternative? Pantene has a dontation program as well and only requires 8" of hair.
On Saturday, Twinkletoes celebrated her 8th birthday in a great way. We were lucky enough to have my sister in law cut Twink's hair at her new salon (she is the owner!! cool!!) We have 9.5" to send off to Pantene later this week. Amazing! What an unselfish kid to want to grow her hair out specifically for this purpose. She amazes me every day!!
