Boy cuts his hair for the first time and donates it to make wigs

9-year-old Reilly Stancombe showed that huge acts of kindness “come in very small bottles.”

Originally from Essex, England, this little boy cut his long hair for the first time to donate to charity. These locks will be used to make wigs for children with cancer.

He had a great inspiration

Reilly was inspired by the Real Madrid player, Gareth Bale, to grow his hair, and his desire to donate it came after being a patient at Great Ormond Street Hospital and seeing how some children lost their hair in their fight against cancer.

He was a little scared at first

Despite the fact that cutting off his long hair meant losing a kind of identity that accompanied him for a long time, he is very happy that this sacrifice has a good purpose.

“I really hope this makes a lot of people happy.”

—Reilly, little altruist

It wasn’t just the hair

In addition, through a GoFundMe account, he managed to raise a considerable amount of money that will go to LittlePrincesses, an organization that makes and offers free real hair wigs to young people and children fighting cancer.

His goal was to get 100 euros for the charity, but, with the help of many people, he is close to reaching 6 thousand euros.

Good for you and your sensitive heart, Reilly!
