Wolf Point High School sophomore Jaki Harada has always had long hair and cut her hair only once in her lifetime until now.
A few years ago, she cut off several inches. After finding that it grew back rather quickly, Harada decided she wanted to donate her hair to a worthy cause. With the help of her parents, Jeff and Chelly Harada, several charitable organizations were researched. Harada decided to donate her hair to Wigs for Kids.
