A Little Bit of This & That

The Random Things We Love to Make and Do

Skylar the Humanitarian June 14, 2011

Filed under: Hair Styles,Miscellaneous — Lizz @ 7:30 am

My daughter is a very good person.  Last week, she cut her hair and donated it to Locks of Love.  If you do not know, Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that creates wigs for underprivileged children who need them.  Skylar loved the idea that a little kid who doesn’t have hair, because he or she is sick, will now have it.  All because of her amazing generosity.

.

In order to be a donator, one must have a minimum of 10 inches of hair to spare.  That’s a lot of hair.  But that’s one thing my kiddo had in abundance.  I took a few photos to commemorate the occasion.

Here’s Skylar before:

And here she is after:

.

I think she looks adorable with short hair!  And boy is she loving it!

.

We took her to our local KidSnips, knowing that they would do the donation for us.  Snip Snip Snip…

.

.

Her hair was measured several times to make sure it was the right length.  I wasn’t kidding about those ten inches.

.

.

When she first saw that hair, she said “Awww…I wish I had that!”  I’m not sure she even realized it was hers! Posing with the hair was a must.

.

.

Grr! Tomahawk!!

.

.

Doesn’t she look great?!

.

KidSnips presented Skylar with a certificate to help commemorate her good deed.

.

.

Another added bonus to this whole thing is that we get to cross off a big item on our summer bucket list.
