In a touching twist, a thoughtful little boy has made the decision to donate his hair to the cause. Nine-year-old Reilly Stancombe from Essex in England had been growing his hair since he was only a little baby. In a Daily Mail article, his mother, Daisy Stancombe, explains that he had always had long hair as a baby.

As he grew older, he admired footballer Gareth Bale, who inspired him to grow his hair.

"He sort of had it shoulder length growing up as a toddler and as he got older he was inspired by football and he grew it and grew it and grew it and it ended up the two-foot (nearly 60cm) of hair he had," she said.
