Rebecca Whittle, a senior at Oakley High School, wanted to raise awareness about the need for donations to foundations that provide children with wigs. So, she's going to do something extraordinary. She's having her own hair cut off at a school assembly on Tuesday, February 23 along with 3 of her sisters and other family members and friends.

"I first had the idea to cut my hair and I decided I wanted to donate it. That is when I came up with the idea to do it for my senior project and I thought I could make a difference in some child's life while including others to help. I wrote the paper in English to help gain knowledge behind children and families who deal with cancer and how it affects them."

I thought I could make a difference in some child's life while including others to help.

And, this amazing gesture on Tuesday at Oakley High School is just the beginning.

"I will be doing a variety of fundraisers and all donations go directly to CWHL. I want to raise $100,000 and collect 100 inches of hair in order to help these young children during their individual trials."

If you would like to follow Rebecca's incredible example, you can donate hair, too! Here's the website with all you need to know to make a difference.

Thank you, Rebecca, for being an inspiration to us all!
