Like his father, Gene Waddy II is always looking for ways to help others — even though he is still in first grade. Gene Junior recently had his first haircut, donating nearly two feet of carefully grown strands to Locks of Love explaining, "I'm donating my hair so that other people, other sick people, can feel good about themselves."
