Locks of Love is a United States based non-profit charity. They accept donations of hair and money with intentions of creating wigs for Canadian and American children that have permanently lost their hair due to medical conditions. Ponder High School is proud to showcase two students that donated their own hair, hoping to help these children in need.

Sierra Hacker, a freshman, says she grew her hair out for nearly 2 years before finally cutting 14 inches of her hair. She later said, “I’m not really sure,” when asked what inspired her. “I just wanted to donate it and help out someone else that doesn’t have hair.” Sierra says that she was not attached to the hair when it was time to cut it and she would easily do it again. “I felt good because I was helping another person by giving them my hair.”

A junior, Kendra Burleyson, donated her hair to a similar charity. Children with Hair Loss is another charity based on making wigs for children with no hair. Kendra donated just over 15 inches of hair! She stated shortly after, “Originally I wanted to just shave all my hair off.” The idea came to her when her mother suggested to donate the hair. “It’ll take a while before my hair is at the length it was but I would gladly do it again. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.”
