Donna Donates Her Ponytail To Locks Of Love

This blog post came to us through an email from Whitney Vaught, one of the staff members at the Bob and Judy Charles SmartHome in Boulder.  Donna, one of the residents at the home, had requested getting her hair cut, so Whitney obliged.  The story is below. 

Bob and Judy Charles SmartHome resident Donna has been thinking of getting her hair cut, and just Monday, she not only got a haircut but had 13 inches of her hair taken off.

Pictured is Donna with Whitney, who is holding the ponytail that Whitney cut off.   When asked if she had kept the ponytail as a souvenir, Donna, in a matter of fact tone told us that she had donated her hair to Locks of Love, 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.

Just last night Donna told us that she is very happy to have her hair shorter, and that life is just easier with her hair shorter.  

Donna's husband Gerald assured us he likes her new hair style too.
