Six-Year-Old Girl Cuts Off Her Rapunzel Hair for Charity

By Kelley Rowland

Like many people with long, luscious hair, 6-year-old Charlie Tillotson from England vowed never to cut her locks-which were all the way down her back. But after she watched a documentary on children with cancer, she decided her tresses could be more useful to other children. Photo by Getty Images

Charlie went up to her father, Steve Tillotson, and asked, "Daddy, would you mind if I had all my hair cut off for children with cancer?" She proceeded to have it cut by a family friend, as fans and family gathered around in support. Charlie had nearly two feet cut that will go to make wigs-that usually cost anywhere from $800 to $5,000-for The Little Princess Trust.

Charlie's charitable decision moved her father so much that he started a JustGiving page to raise money for Children with Cancer UK. He's already raised over $2,000.

Charlie personifies how important it is to care for others in need. To donate to the fund on her behalf, click here.
