Charitable Superhero of the Week: Brooke Burmeister

This high school senior shines with inner beauty


Last week, we honored an entire high school for their charitable efforts. One student in particular stands out. Brooke Burmeister is a senior at Green Bay West High School. In addition to raising over $300 for the Breast Cancer Family Foundation, Brooke donated her hair to Locks of Love. According to Brooke, the hardest part was seeing her long hair fall to the floor. But, she says, it was totally worth it:
"I wanted to give somebody else a chance to have a wig… to feel more like themselves even though they are battling important things in life. It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, its how you feel on the inside. I don’t care that I don’t have hair, because I know that I’m helping people who lose their hair to cancer treatments.”
What a great way to double your charitable impact and create good in the world!


If you know somebody who donates, volunteers, or otherwise supports charitable causes, nominate them for Charitable Superhero of the Week. If they're chosen, they'll receive a free t-shirt and certificate of recognition.
