Here’s an idea: Give up your hair for Lent

It’s really, really sad when people don’t have hair, said 3-year-old Emily. That’s why she decided to give hers away.

During Lent, it becomes very easy to focus inwardly on ourselves to the point of exclusivity. Granted, looking at our own sins and the ways that we need to grow personally is very important and a vital part of the season. However, Lent is also a time to reach out, to stretch and give more of ourselves (that whole almsgiving thing). What are ways that we can give sacrificially? Maybe it’s our hair, or maybe it’s something else.
