Finally the day arrived, I’ve been hanging on for just a few more weeks to allow every last millimeter to grown before taking the plunge and giving some of my hair away to the Little Princess Trust!
I was really inspired by a friend on Facebook who like Jesse J had all her hair shaved off, I thought if they can do that I can certainly donate what I can to help make a little person happier somewhere. People always comment on how lovely Beth’s hair is and when I read about this charity I instantly thought about how upsetting it must be for a little girl or boy to not have their hair – the next thought was where’s my tape measure???
At first, I was a bit worried I wouldn’t have hair long enough to do it, but when it came to it today I had an 11″ plait to donate (the minimum hair length is 7″) so hopefully there should be plenty there to use. I also would like to say a HUGE thank you to Lizzie at The Retreat who cut my hair today, she did a fabulous job and I couldn’t be happier!
This is such a great charity that is utilising something that would ordinarily be thrown away. My package has now been weighed and posted to the lovely people at The Little Princess Trust.
Please, please, please show your support and Like their Facebook page. I’ve just been over and found this picture of a little girl receiving her wig – this is exactly the reason why this charity is so special and why I wanted to send my hair to them.
