SALT LAKE CITY — Dozens of people cut off and donated their hair Saturday afternoon to help children who have lost their hair due to various medical conditions.

Disney sponsored the event that took place at Great Clips in Salt Lake City, to help the non-profit Children With Hair Loss organization.

A lot of young people donated to the cause and many of them had been planning their donations for months.

"We thought donating her hair which because it was long, it would be a nice idea to share it with someone who doesn't have hair," said Julianna Shell, the mother of someone who donated.

The individuals who donated at least eight inches of hair received two tickets to the upcoming Disney on Ice performance that will feature the Princess Rapunzell.
