Rapunzel, Rapunzel here is my golden hair

Sara Forde from Arklow got her hair cut this week for a very good cause.

Last year Sara was on her computer looking for the cartoon version of Rapunzel and found something very different.

The 7-year-old found a video where children were growing their hair for the Rapunzel Foundation. She told her mother she wanted to grow her hair and as soon as it reached 14 inches cut it off.

On Monday as Sara was going to school her hair had reached the milestone and she immediately got her mother Kelly to cut it off and send it away to Wexford.

The Rapunzel Foundation is a charitable organization that works to improve the lives of those living with hair loss (alopecia) through fund raising as well as through hair raising.

Hair is raised through the Rapunzel Foundation’s Ponytail campaign, where people commit to growing their hair 14 inches or longer with the view to their hair being sent to help make much needed wigs to improve the lives of those living with the hair loss.
