My grand daughter Kaitlynn has always been very vain about her hair. She is almost six yours old and has never cut her hair except for the ends.

My daughter Kristina has donated her hair to Locks of Love - a foundation that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair to cancer.

Kristina told Kaitlynn about it and asked her if she would donate her hair. I really thought she would be upset about it.

Christmas day we were watching TV and that heartbreaking commercial for St. Jude's hospital was on and Kaitkynn asked if those were the sick children that needed hair. I told her they were. She almost cried watching the commercial and told me she was giving them her hair.

Today she went and donated her hair to locks of love. I am so damned proud of her and of Kristina for teaching her an invaluable life lesson.

I am so proud of you Kaitlynn!!

  1. That is wonderful. I know that you are so proud of both of them. Your daughter is teaching her an amazing lesson.

  2. What a wonderful gesture from one so young! Amazing!! Your daughter is setting such a good example for her little one.

  3. When my daughter was her age we both got our hair cut and donated to this wonderful cause. She has since donated 2 more times, she's now 19. Way to go!!! Shari (cricutrookie)
