Roving Reporter | "Little Person, Big Heart!"

Local resident and soon-to-be 2nd grader "J" proves that you don't have to be a big person to have a big heart. After a few years of growing a beautiful, long mane "J" is donating her freshly cut ponytail to Locks of Love. "Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis."

It might be assumed that "J"'s parents put this kiddo up to this, but no!--"J"'s mother insists that it was all "J"'s idea, even giving the 2nd grader a last minute: "Are you sure you want to do this?" but "J" was sure!

What an amazing example she has set for not only her siblings, but for the entire community! Way to go "J!"
If you are interested in donating your lovely locks there are several organizations to choose from, Locks of Love being just one. Most organizations require your ponytail to be 8-10 inches in length before they will accept it, and some require that the hair is not color-treated or grey.

    My daughter, Allycia, saw a St. Jude's commercial when she was 5 and wanted to know what she could do to help the girl with no hair. We showed her Locks of Love and she grew hers out and has donated twice :)

    Just wonderful. Though it wasn't the parents idea, they should be mighty proud of this little one! ~Mary
