Waterdown youth donates locks to Angel Hair for Kids

Community Mar 15, 2013 Flamborough Review

It’s an unusual charitable gesture for one so young, but there was nine-year-old Faith MacRae sitting in a salon chair ready for her lengthy blonde braids to be chopped off.

Wanting to donate her hair to a charity that makes wigs for children who experience hair loss (due to treatment or a medical condition), Faith finally got her chance on Monday.

“Faith has been growing her hair since she was little and has never really had more than one or two inches taken off,” said mom, Louise. “She has been wanting to do this for a few months and we waited until March Break to give her a chance to really think about it.”

Her locks will go to Angel Hair for Kids, a program of A Child’s Voice Foundation, a national not-for-profit organization, that supplies wigs and hair replacement to children in need, among other programs.

The Grade 4 Guy B. Brown public school student now has a new look – which she loves – complete with a streak of pink, a treat for her generous gift.
