Little Miss Maaike has a beautiful heart. She is 6 years old and graciously donated her hair to a very worthy cause. She donated her hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths which is an organization that has "a partnership between Pantene and the Canadian Cancer Society, the largest non-profit health organization committed to saving lives from every cancer and improving the quality of life for people facing the disease."
I have know Maaike since she started JK with my oldest son Noah. He has always been very fond of her and they are very good friends. Her kindness and inner beauty can be recognized within moments of meeting her. I am very happy that she is the kind of person that my little Noah chooses to be friends with. She is the perfect example of a kind and generous soul that we should all aspire to become. I personally hold her amazing mother and father responsible for her behaviour. "Parenting"…you are doing it right!
Once I viewed the photographs of Maaike holding her long blond hair in the air, I was compelled to get her and her family in the studio for some photographs. I kept thinking to myself. "What 6 year old girl, with beautiful long hair, cuts it all off for a stranger?" This little girl with a beautiful heart does. That's who! Here is a gallery of the photographs we managed to make together. I told her to bring everything with her that she loves. She has a few books, a few stuffies, and swimming is her passion. Thank you Maaike!
