After I wrote the blog about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, it seemed appropriate to find out how students all across the nation are lending their support to the rescue efforts.
There has been a national campaign by established by Matter of Trust that sends human hair to Louisiana to be combined with nylons – yes, like panty hose- to create nets of hair that will essentially sop up the oil in the Gulf.
At Grand Blanc’s Brendel Elementary, the Bulldogs have started their “Save the Sea” program and have transformed their gym into a hair salon, where students, teachers and staff are donating anywhere from one to 14 inches of hair.
