Locks of Love

By Kelly Sparks | 

Karli Powell is celebrating her ninth birthday and after opening a few of her presents, she decided to give a gift of her own.

"My friend Jessica, she gave hers away it made me want to."

Karli cut more than eleven inches off of her hair to donate to Locks of Love.

Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children 18 years and younger suffering from long-term medical hair loss.

Karli has been growing her hair out for more than four years to donate to Locks of Love and plans to donate again once her hair gets long enough.
