Photos: Buzzing 4 Change
Buzzing 4 Change started as a student organization at GW and grew into a national nonprofit foundation that calls on people to cut their hair to raise funds for local children’s cancer charities. GW is one of four schools, including Bryn Mawr College, Drexel University, and University of Pittsburgh, that participates in the annual event.
