East County residents Layna Ryser and Allee Lowry may only be 4 and 3 years old, respectively, but the girls are eager to help children who are ill.
The girls donated their hair to Locks of Love, with Layna donating 10 inches and Allee donating 11 inches.
“We came up with the idea so they could start understanding how important it is to help people in any way they can,” their grandmother Karen Ryser says. “Being at such a young age, this was a good way for them to do something. They were so excited to be able to make other little sick children happy.”
Karen Ryser’s longtime hairdresser, Amy Arnold, an East County resident who owns The Courtyard, in Sarasota, donated her skills and time to cut the girls’ hair.
