Students Chop Hair for Donation


Do you need a haircut? If the answer to this question is yes, then “Covering Young Heads to Heal Young Hearts,” CWHL, has a great opportunity for you.

On March 18 during Ovation, students can sign up to have eight inches or more of hair cut off and donated to children who are unable to grow their own hair due to illness. CWHL is a not-for-profit organization that takes donation of hair and makes them into wigs. These wigs are then given to sick children.

What makes the CWHL different than any other organization is the fact they charge no money to the family. They simply give the wigs to the children so that even those who can’t afford to buy hair can still benefit from this organization. Children with “medically related hair loss” can now get the hair they yearn for and feel confident and happy as they used to with a full head of hair.

ODA students look forward to the opportunity to help.

“I would have done it if I didn’t already cut my hair,” says junior Miller Condrack.

“I would never cut it in front of the school, but I want to help” says junior Jordan Bruder.

“I think its for a good cause,” says senior Rachael Kramer.

“I think it’s a good and honorable thing to do that focuses the attention on an important issue, “says history teacher, Mr. Bernsen.

If you are interested in donating on March 18, or you would like to join the community, there is a sign up sheet located in the library.

Don’t just cut your hair and let it go to waste. Do something nice and help out the kids who really need it.
