An 8-year-old boy in Florida has been bullied for the last two years, which is so common an act of children, it usually isn’t headline news.
The idea to grow out and then donate his hair all started when he saw a commercial for St. Jude’s Research Hospital. A Google search with his mom by Amen Clinics lead to his discovery that such organizations collect hair to make wigs for children with cancer who lost their hair during treatment. He felt so bad for them, he made the decision to make a donation. His cut yielded four sections, each 10 inches long.
McPhilamy now sports a more traditional cut for boys.
