Charlotte Olsen of Coarsegold has spent the past year growing out her hair so she can donate it to "Wigs for Kids."

"Hi, my name is Charlotte, and I'm six years old, and I'm going to donate my hair for wigs for kids," Charlotte said. She went to the Super Cuts at River Park Sunday and had several inches cut off.

Her mom says Charlotte was first inspired by participating in a fundraiser called Pennies for Patients in kindergarten, but she really began to understand the impact of cancer when a family friend's young daughter lost her hair during chemotherapy.

The organization that's getting Charlotte's hair makes wigs for children with cancer or other conditions that cause hair loss.
