This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from… the Zimmer! 4 1/2 year old twins Shayna and Shoshana Kleinman are Zimmer regulars. They always had long flowing hair, until recently, when Zimmer staff noticed their beautiful short haircuts. The girls’ grandma explained that Shayna and Shoshana had donated their hair to an organization called Zichron MenachemThe Israeli Association for the Support of Children with Cancer and their Families.

“You are so lucky to have such beautiful hair. Some children get very sick and lose their hair. You have an opportunity to share with them and help them.”
They looked into many different organizations, but they picked Zichron Menachem  because of its connection to their Jewish heritage and its focus on donating the hair to children. The girls then decided that even though the minimum hair length to donate is 12″, they wanted to “grow as long as possible so we can give as much as we can.” They each eventually donated 16″ of hair to the organization! We are so proud of our Zimmer members Shayna and Shoshana Kleinman for reminding us that giving doesn’t have to cost a lot (or anything). We are so happy to highlight them as a RAK. Do you know a Zimmer visitor who has done a random act of kid-ness? Let us know!
