Christian McPhilamy did something amazing to help out other kids in need.
Sometimes, spreading the word is all it takes. Christian McPhilamy from Melbourne, FL was watching TV and saw a commercial for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and was promptly inspired. For the past two years, Christian has been growing out his hair to donate to a foundation called Children With Hair Loss. Since he started his hair-growing journey, Christian’s hair has grown ten inches.
Of course, even if you’re doing a good deed, things may not always be easy. Despite his good intentions, Christian still faced hardships along his way to donating his locks. According to Mashable, his mother commented that her son had “endured an awful lot of criticism” while he was growing out his hair. Yes, that criticism can also include bullying. However, Christian stuck to his goal and didn’t let negative remarks bother him. He knew that he wanted to help other kids in need, and did all that he could to ensure that he followed through.
