Big Sister, Little Sister

Unlike her old man, my youngest daughter was blessed with a head of thick, long hair and naturally curly hair. This past Wednesday, she donated 24 inches of it to a great organization: Locks of Love.

Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that turns donated hair into high quality hair prosthetics. Their mission is to return a sense of self, confidence and normalcy to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss.

Like her big sister, Allison, Taylor's excitement grew as her hair grew closer to reaching the required eight inches for donation. Unlike her sister, who has very fine hair, Taylor was able to donate three ponytails.

Both girls, I am proud to say, made the decision to help others on their own. More importantly, both realized the positive impact their charitable acts would have on the lives of others less fortunate.

Yes, a proud day to be a father, indeed.

Yahoo for your girls! Both my daughter Bailey and myself donated to Locks of Love in August. Great cause!
