Charity Week: Do you See What I See?

Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see?
‘Way up in the sky, little lamb
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

I see 10 inches gone! I was inspired by a male coworker who grew his hair out to give it to Locks of Love this past year. Since joining the Down syndrome community my eyes have been forever opened to our sweet family members in our community that are cancer warriers.

1 in 96 children with Down syndrome develop leukemia. Thankfully some little bit of magic on that 21st chromosome also makes them the warriers that they are and they tend to fare better than their counterparts without that little bit extra. So in this season of giving- in honor of the sweet babies in our community- I’m giving my hair up for charity.

Think about doing the same. It’s so easy- just go to locksoflove.org to read how. There are other organizations out there such as Pantene Beautiful Lengths as well that make wigs for adults. And I believe they will take an 8 inch minimum. I realize that a lot of the wigs that Locks of Love do go to children that have other disorders rather than having cancer. But I wanted the hair this time to go to the children.

Could you do the same?
