Girl Scout Daisy Honors Girl Scout Junior with Hair Donation

Girl Scouts often perform acts of courage and kindness without seeking badges or other recognition. 

Rachel, kindergartner and Girl Scout Daisy of Troop 968, donated two thick ponytails of her hair to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that provides wigs for children who have lost hair due to medical treatments, in honor of fourth grade Girl Scout Junior Maddie in January. 

Maddie was diagnosed with lymphoma in late 2011 and she lost her hair to chemotherapy treatments. Maddie had the honor of cutting Rachel's hair. Both troops are led by Rachel's mother, Stacey.
