If you are close to one of these locations, and are thinking of cutting your hair, or that of your child, consider this an opportunity to teach your child multiple life lessons. We have spoken openly with our children about illnesses and the downsides of illness AND the side effects of some of the treatments. Our kids know how lucky they are to be healthy. They also know how much a gift can lift the spirits of another, and bring them joy and happiness.
Pickle has been very outspoken about his choice to grow his hair out long and donate it. He has suffered through teasing at school, as well as from some of our extended and overly opinionated family. He has learned to stand up for what he believes in, regardless of the hurtful words and actions of others. I have suffered through comments that degrade my parenting skills and choices, for allowing him to have a choice AND a voice. I have no regrets. I am raising a little man who already has a giving heart. He makes my heart swell with pride.
Not only did he cut his hair, but he made the choice to keep his hair long enough to wear in a ponytail, so that he could continue to grow his hair out again, for another donation in the future.
Now, for those of you who have been considering donating your hair, please check out the information below! This is going on THIS WEEKEND!
