Kosmos No Limit Creations in Lansing is cutting hair for a cause. All proceeds from haircuts on Wednesday will be going to Wigs for Kids, an organization helping out younger cancer patients.

Partners at the barbershop, Eric Maum and Tim Davis have both lost multiple family members to different types of cancer. They say this is just their small part in giving back to the community.

Maum says if any small business just pitches in a little, it would go a far way it putting a smile on children's faces. He says the best way to help out is by trying to put a smile on their faces.

Both partners say they will continue to give back to the community as long as they're in business.
