A long donation

Isla Gray is a vibrant 6 year old from Rossland with a heart as big as her smile. This past week she cut off 10” of hair to make a very personal donation to Wigs for Kids BC.

Wigs for Kids is an organization that works closely with the BC Children’s Hospital to provide wigs for sick kids. Their mandate has also expanded to include medication/feeding supplies  and even a fun day out to boost morale. Their motto is, “Kids living better with Cancer”.

Gray is also raising funds to be donated with her hair, her goal is $1000. She has been pounding the pavement in Rossland and is so grateful for the generosity of businesses and individuals thus far. So, if you see her making the rounds, gathering donations to send in with her tresses, give her a high five  or the change from your pocket. Your change will make change in a young person’s life.

You can donate online via Gray’s Superhero page through the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation, get your receipt right away and celebrate Isla’s progress.
