Giving hair this holiday season

Waverly (KWWL) - Three girls and one teacher from Waverly Shell Rock Junior High are giving something different this holiday season.

They donated their hair to Locks of Love. The girls also sold raffle tickets to decide who would get to cut their hair. They raised about $100 which will also be donated to Locks of Love.

Emma Withers has donated her hair three times now.

"My Aunt Nancy inspired me. She lived with lung cancer and passed away before I was born," Withers said.

All of the girls says they will donate their hair again. They say it took about a year and a half to grow that long.
