|The kids at the assmbley|
Before The Big Cut, I took a before picture of Dude and his pal, Colton (the other brave soul who was donating his locks today), gave them both a high five and wished them well. Within half an hour this two hippy boys were transformed into two hip young men, to the hoots and applause of their classmates. Aside from donating their hair the boys, and their school, raised well over one thousand dollars for Angel Hair for Kids.
"I did this. This whole thing today was because I had the idea that I could give my hair away. It was just an idea!"
"It was an idea you shared and from that idea other people were inspired to help out too ... that's how people change the world and make a difference," I said.
These boys are rock stars and heroes, they are compassionate souls and inspirations, they are magnificent. I am so proud of them and their friends for understanding that one kid with a head of hair, a pocket full of coins and a caring heart can make a real difference.
