After Earl Mayes realized he wouldn't be able to travel overseas with his church, he decided to look for another way to help others.
His search led him to "Locks of Love," an organization that makes hairpieces for children who have lost their hair, due to medical conditions.
After growing out his hair for a year, Earl was ready to make the cut. He went to the same barbershop he's gone to for 20 years for the big moment.
Earl's family and friends say they are not surprised he's continuing to help others.
