8-year-old donates hair to kids in need

Posted: January 2, 2014 - 1:14am

KODIAK — Hanna Moody may look like your average 8-year-old girl, but to some unknowing child in the world, she’s a hero.

Moody made the decision to cut off all her hair in order to donate it to Locks of Love, a nonprofit that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged kids suffering from hair loss. The donations are intended to help their self-esteem and confidence.

On Dec. 21, Hanna and her mom Kathy went to Vizhunz Salon, where she had 12 inches of hair cut off to donate.

Hanna knows how much a helping hand means. She has severe epilepsy and was recently diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, a form of autism.

“She went through a hard summer,” Kathy Moody said.

Hanna is now sporting a chin-length haircut but is already planning to grow her hair out and donate it again, her mom said.
