She's a little girl with heart, and while Eliza Mitchell still doesn't know how to feel about having less than half of the hair she used to have, it's the reward that matters.
"I wanted to make someone else smile," Eliza states matter-of-factly.
"It's annoying when it's dangling down now. It's funny because I've got a lighter head!"
The seven-year-old chopped off 26cms to donate to Wigs4Kids, and raised over a grand to go with her strands of hair.
"She raised $1148 before she chopped it off - but we've had another $10 donated since," mum Melinda Mitchell explained.
"I'm very proud. She's never really cut her hair before, it's only been really trimmed, so for her to cut so much off, it is is a big deal."
Eliza was due for a haircut, and during the discussion about how much of the locks to lop off, Mrs Mitchell told her that if they cut enough off, they could donate it to another girl who had lost their hair.
"We chose Wigs4kids because it's Australian and it will not get sold off. The hair stays in Australia, goes straight to the wig makers and put aside for wigs for kids," Mrs Mitchell stated.
She's had family go through chemo, with her Nan the main one.
"She lost all her hair. It's the identity aspect of losing it... it will really give a boost to whoever receives the wig."
The donation link is still open, and can be found here.
