The 8-year-old boy Tate has cut his hair for the last time at Christmas Eve 2015. Tate's hair grew so long that people at school thought sometimes that he was a girl.
Tate thought that it was all worth it because he had a reason to let his hair grew so long. He wanted to help someone else. He decided to donate his hair to Children With Hair Loss.
In 2017, the non-profit organization helped 596 children with Hair Replacement and Care Kits. Since 2000, they have provided more than 4000 Hair Replacement and Care Kits to children. It was all free of charge.
Tate decided recently that it was the right time to cut his hair. He was so excited that he was finally able to help someone with his long locks.
He showed incredible determination, patience, and kindness through the time with his charitable act. Especially at such a young age as he has, and he is a great example of how there are lots of ways to help other people. You do not always need to give money to do something for a charity.
