Three-year-old donates first haircut to kids in need

Three-year-old Hailey had her first haircut this week, and plans to donate it to kids in need.

Three-year-old donates first haircut to kids in need

When Jennifer Pastorelle took her daughter to the hairdresser for her first haircut, it was a special occasion in more ways than one. A nurse who lost her own mother to Ovarian cancer at the age of 15, Jennifer knows the impact of cancer only too well.

“We definitely know the effects of cancer in my family and how that feels, so if we can help just give back, it would mean a lot to be able to do that,” she said.

Her daughter, Hailey, cut off about 11 inches on Monday and plans to donate it to Locks of Love, a public non-profit that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss.

“Her hair is so pretty and we get compliments wherever we go, so we decided that we would donate it to Locks of Love,” Pastorelle said.

Hailey was given a certificate by the salon for donating her hair, and will also get a teddy bear from Locks of Love.

    Hailey is a very thoughtful girl for her age. I wonder if it was her idea.No doubt she has seen a child who sadly has lost her hair due to cancer or other treatment.
