Cinnaminson Third-Grader Donates Hair to Help Needy Kids

Karli Everman got 12 inches cut off and donated to Wigs for Kids.

When 8-year-old Karli Everman got her hair cut last week, she wasn’t happy with the results.

But when she remembered where her hair would be going, she was OK with it.

And now that it’s a few days later, she actually likes her new ‘do.

Karli, who starts third grade at next month, got a whopping 12 inches cut from her brown hair all to donate to .

“My hair was really long,” Karli said at her house Tuesday, “but I wanted to help people who have cancer.”

One of Karli’s neighbors is .

“So then I wanted to do it too,” Karli said.

So, her mother Loraine made her an appointment at Hairem in Cinnaminson. Karli’s hair was separated into four ponytails and snipped off. She and her mom donated the hair to Lubin.

“We were so proud,” Loraine Everman said of her daughter’s decision to donate her hair. “Karli loves to help other people and it’s one more thing she can do to help someone.”

When the ponytails were snipped off, Karli said “I didn’t really like it at first.”

But since she’s showed it off to a few friends who loved it, it’s growing on her.

And she’ll continue the growing—she said she might even want to donate again once she gets those 12 inches back.
