Henrietta 9-year-old donates hair to charity

July 16, 2017 07:51 PM

A Henrietta boy was showing off a new look and a big heart on Sunday after he got his hair cut for charity.

Nine-year-old Damien grew his hair for two-and-a-half years before getting it cut super short. He says it all started after he watched a YouTube video of a kid his same age donating his hair for a good cause.

Damien says he decided he wanted to donate his hair to a charity for cancer patients.

"Sometimes I didn't like it," he says, "but other times- like winter time- I did like it because it would actually kind of keep me warm." 

Damien hopes his hair donation inspires other kids to do the same thing.
