It first started off as just an idea and a suggestion. Christina asked Karissa if she was opened to donating her hair to Locks of Love, an organization that provides hairpieces to disadvantaged children suffering from hair loss due to various diseases.
Their mission is “to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children.”
After hearing about where her hair would be donated, KiKi was very open to cutting her hair. So Christina took her to a hair salon that works with the organization and got a haircut for KiKi.
KiKi came back as a new young lady.
We are using these kinds of opportunities to develop a heart of compassion and sacrifice in our children.
The hair had to be 10 inches long. They cut KiKi’s hair into four pieces.
