Yasmina's Locks of Love




Last Saturday, four year old Yasmina (my cousin's daughter), had a big event! She had her very first haircut... and for a good cause too :-) She donated 11 inches of her hair to Locks of Love. Basically her mom and dad were talking about it for a while, how it is nice to donate locks of your hair to little kids who are sick and lost their hair due to sickness...

Yaya... very proud of you little princess :-)


Check this video out!



Kids have pure hearts!

That's so sweet of Yasmina. And so sweet of her parents as well. She looks adorable with the short hair ;)

The ad is very touching! It made me smile out of the blue.

Although Quentin never needed a wig (he lost his hair during treatments but he was 1, a bald head sort of fit), we've met other kids who did want a wig and Locks of Love helped them. Tell Yasmina that we thank her too for thinking of others.

I'm not sure how this would help with anything, but it's still nice of her :)

It's a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to children in the US and Canada suffering from medical hair loss from any diagnosis.

Check their website for more on it
