When we heard about this adorable 8 (almost 9) year old boy who spent 2 years growing out his hair to donate, we just had to tell you all about him!
Meet Ramberg, aka Boogie, who was inspired at just 6 years old when his cousins Lexi & Izy donated their hair. His mom quotes him on July 22, 2013 as having said
"I WANT TO DO THAT!
Someone would just love a curly haired wig!"
The hair needed to be at least 12 inches and during the process he was called a girl more times than he could count, but that didn't stop Boogie from being determined to grow out his hair. He said that his favorite thing about having long hair was
"Rubbing it on my back and when people would play with it",
but it was difficult having to get the soap out and brush it.
He would love for whomever receives the hair to know that it came from a boy.
Boogie feels "Happy and excited that someone without hair will be able to have hair," and if you're considering donating he'd love for you to know that "It's fun to donate your hair because other people that will get to have your hair, will feel happy because it was thoughtful of you."
Boogie's mom describes him as being "amazing at Legos and anything artsy. He truly is incredibly talented. His creative mind is a huge part of him and he is always impressing people with it.
He has been a giver since he was a toddler.
He loves to give away his artwork and anything he has to give. He was definitely sent here to share his love of life and love of people. He is kind, a good boy that makes many good choices. We are proud of him and his accomplishments, I admire his courage to stand strong through this experience by blessing another."
When we asked him if he would consider growing his hair out again, Boogie said "Maybe." We're sure that whomever receives the wig made from your gorgeous locks will appreciate their "long, blonde, curly haired wig!"
