Kieran Moise wanted to give back in a big way after receiving an acceptance call from the US Air Force Academy.
He has been growing his hair for years resulting in a 19″ long afro. He told WAFF, “I just don’t like haircuts and I haven’t had a real one in six years.” But once he got the call, he knew it was time to cut his hair and he wanted to do this with the aim of donating the hair for use in wigs for children battling cancer. He share “didn’t want to just cut it off and drop it on the floor” and wild “Give back, because there are many people who need help.”
Moise was inspired to do donate his hair after losing a friend to cancer in 8th grade. He saw the good St Jude’s Hospital did for kids. Before the big moment, he cut his hair at Straight to Ale Brewery in Huntsville in front of family and friends. His St. Jude’s donation page has already raised more than $34,000.
