Locks of Love - A post from Becky

Are you familiar with the organization, Locks of Love? I am so impressed - this is an excerpt from their website:

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. 

I am also proud to say that my 14 year old daughter, Sarah, had 11" of her hair cut off and donated it to Locks of Love.  Sarah has always been blessed with beautiful red hair and a while ago we started talking about her doing this.  She has been growing it out (you need at least 10" to cut off) and then she wanted it long enough that it could be styled!  Last week she went to the Bobby Cooper Salon in Indianapolis where her hairdresser, McKenzie, chopped it off!  I have to admit, it made me weepy.  I have posted before and after pictures as well of some shots of the cut.

After the cut

The new cut which Sarah says she loves - I do know it takes her a lot less time to straighten in the morning!!

Sarah's donation to Locks of Love - she makes 
her mom & dad proud!

Unfortunately, highlighted hair (I've been highlighting mine since high school!) cannot be donated but colored hair can so if it so moves you, check out their website and see what Locks of Love is all about!
