Watch this moving video of a 3-year-old girl explaining why she’s decided to donate her hair to children who have cancer.

3-year-old Emily James felt so bad for other children who lost their hair through cancer treatment that she decided to donate her long hair to be used as a wig.

Emily says: ‘Sometimes kids get sick and then their hair falls out… Its really really sad.’

We are then show her Uncle Matthew’s hair salon where Emily and her doll get their hair cut.

‘I don’t want any kids to be sad that they have no hair… I’m going to give the my hair,’ says the inspiring little girl.

Emily says she always puts on her best behaviour when she visits the salon.

‘I try to stay nice and still when Matthew cuts my hair.’

So adorable and so inspiring!
