LOCKS OF LOVE!!!!!





YES - it's that time again!!!! Our daughter is donating her hair for the second time tomorrow!!!!!!!! We just had it trimmed a month ago to assure she was donated the healthiest hair possible. For those of you who don't already know....her is a little story:

When Kasi was 4 years old we took her brother for his monthly trim. While there, there was a little girl donating her hair and she asked me why she was cutting her pony tail COMPLETELY OFF so I explained to her how Cancer worked and how the little kids that had this disease lost their hair during treatments. I further went on to explain how the girl was donating it to a special charity called LOCKS OF LOVE where they take the hair and make wigs for those children in need.

When we left the salon - she told me that she wanted to grow her hair and also donate it. Sure enough - a week before she turned 6, she donated it. Here are some pictures from that year:

First donation: February 2006:




After she donated it, she immediately looked at me and said "Mommy, I want to grow it and donate it AGAIN!!!!" She turned 8 in February and she is now ready to donate it for the 2nd time. We are so very proud of our little girl.

Tomorrow, I will post more pictures!!

Big hugs, T

  5. My 16 year old son donated 15 inches of his hair to Locks of Love. It was very emotional for everyone in our family. His hair was very beautiful & the healthiest chestnut brown the beautician had ever seen. It's a wonderful organization & our son really made us proud that day, too.
    Love all your creations. Your very talented.
