We don’t need to act like an angel but we all should choose the kindness whenever we can. We don’t do good things for recognition. Many even don’t understand what we do. We choose kindness simply because we know that it can help people who really need help. Sometimes, love, share, and kindness can change a person’s life. The story below surely melts your hearts. An 8-year-old boy insisted on growing hair long in two years to donate hair to make wigs for kids with cancer. He endured bullying at school during that time but never changed his mind. Let’s scroll down!
Two and a half years ago, 6-year-old boy Christian McPhilamy made one of the weirdest decisions in his life so far – grow hair long. Following this, he was teased at school and often mistaken for a girl, but he still kept his mind. The boy had a very special goal from the early – donate 10-inch-long locks of his hair to make wigs for children suffering from cancer.
When Christian was 6, McPhilamy, who lives in Florida, was inspired by a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital advertisement that he saw on TV. “Some people tried to call me a girl,” McPhilamy told Florida Today. He said this made him feel “not very good,” but that never prevented him from completing his mission and donating his hair to Children With Hair Loss.
Christian McPhilamy suffered bullying for 2 1/2 years to grow his hair long for his special action
The boy wanted to donate his hair to make wigs for kids being treated with cancer
Some kids at school teased him and called him a girl when they saw his long hair
Even adults tried to encourage him to cut his hair…
…But he never changed his mind and explained his mission
The bullying made Christian feel “not very good,” but that didn’t stop him!
After 2 1/2 years, his parents cut off his hair in 4 10-inch ponytails and donated them to Children With Hair Loss
8-year-old boy Christian is an excellent example for each and every one of us!
