10-year-old Jetta Fosberg is a loving little girl who wanted to make a difference in society, despite being so young in age.

When she grew her hair out long enough, Jetta did the unthinkable for girls her age. She cut it off and donated it to Wigs for Kids, an organization that uses donated hair to create wigs for children with cancer. Jetta thought this would be the best way to make an impact on society.

When the hair stylist cut off 14 inches of Jetta’s hair, she was not satisfied. She demanded that more be cut off so that more children could have wigs.

While most children grow attached to their appearance and hair, Jetta was perfectly satisfied with her short-haired look. Doesn’t she just look adorable?

However, on her first day of school, Jetta quickly became the talk of the school. While Jetta did what she did in good faith, her fellow students did not recognize her for that. Instead, they bullied her for “looking like a boy.”

Jetta’s mother, Heidi, shared Jetta’s story on Facebook in hopes it would inspire others. They created the Stand With Jetta Facebook page in order to stand up for victims of bullying.

Despite the bullying, Jetta has no regrets. She says, “It was the right thing to do and it makes me feel good.” The support has poured in for Jetta from all over the world, and the page currently has over 121,000 likes.
