PSU Student in Unique Funraiser

Danny Lieb, a PSU senior business management major who also serves as vice speaker of the Student Senate, told fellow students earlier in December that he would cut off his hair, which hadn’t been cut since April 18, 2004, if they could raise $300 for Toys for Tots. Students ended up raising $436, and Lieb, a Bedford, NH native, not only made good on his promise, but he also ended up donating his hair to the nonprofit group Locks of Love, which collects hair to be made into wigs for cancer patients. At left, Lieb gets his hair cut by Elyse Bernd, a Northfield resident, at the Thomas Roberts Salon and Barbershop in downtown Plymouth, N.H. At right, Lieb shows off his new look.
