Melynda has been growing her hair out for Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that makes and gives hair pieces to children (under 18) who have a medical condition that prevents hair growth. I was not surprised to read that the majority of the hair donors are children. Anyway, I donated my long hair when I was younger and wanted to again but my plans were spoiled when I needed my hair cut for my wedding to have the up-d0 I wanted. She has been interested in donating since hearing my laments and is already talking of "next time."
Here is Melynda!

3) Mom "whacked" her hair off with her Pampered Chef shears!
