Two Chesterfield Township girls are following in their mother's clippings.
After watching their mom Virginia Goleski donate her hair to charity over the years, Emily, 6, and Stephanie, 10, recently chopped their ponytails to benefit Wigs 4 Kids of St. Clair Shores.
"They were absolutely thrilled," Goleski said. "Somebody else will have a beautiful wig because Stephanie and Emily donated their hair."
For the Great Oaks Elementary students, the good deeds start young.
When Stephanie, now a fifth-grader in the Anchor Bay School District, first donated 12-1/2 inches of her locks she was only 4. The second time she cut her hair was in honor of a boy in her second-grade classroom at Lobbestael Elementary in L'Anse Creuse Public Schools undergoing chemotherapy treatments, her mother said.
The latest donation around the holidays is the third time she chopped her pony for a cause and her little sister Emily, who's in first-grade, joined her. They hope someone will benefit from their gift around Christmastime.
