My story

[p]Hello, I'm Louis, I'm 13 years old and brother to Jon who is 5.[/p][p]I have always had long hair and have grown it pretty much my whole life but after so many people keep mistaking me for a girl, I wanted to see what life would be like with short hair.[/p][p]So that got me thinking, how could I do this and help other people at the same time?[/p][p]The answer is pretty easy; I could donate my hair to a children's cancer wig charity and also raise funds for Stepping Stones DS, a charity that my little brother benefits from as they support children who were born with Downs Syndrome.[/p][p]This charity have had a really tough time since COVID as many of the events they hold had to be cancelled as well as the fundraising activities, I thought it would be nice to be able to help then out in these hard times.[/p][p]It would mean so much to so many if you were able to donate any amount you can, no matter what size, I would be so grateful[/p][p]Update, there are so many kind people I’ve had to increase my target.[/p][p]Update 2. I’ve had to raise my target again because of all these wonderful people donating [/p][p]Thank you all so much if you have donated, it means an awful lot.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
