IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘m going to do something pretty extreme, and IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘m writing to ask you to join me in one of two ways: You can do what IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘m doing, or you can support me with a donation for childhood cancer research!
What am I doing? IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘m going to have my head shaved at a St. BaldrickĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Foundation event on March 2, 2013.
With my bald head, IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ll stand in solidarity with kids being treated for cancer. But the real point of all this is to raise money for life-saving research. IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘m doing it for infants, children, teens and young adults fighting cancer. While itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s especially hard to think of kids fighting cancer, IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘m also glad to know that some of the research supported by this foundation ultimately helps to fight all cancers.
Please make a donation on my head and come watch us Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“Shaving the Way to Conquer KidsĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ Cancer!Ă˘â‚¬Âť
To see my donor names, fundraising progress, before and after photos, and - most important - the kids IĂ˘â‚¬â„˘m doing this for, please visit my page on the St. BaldrickĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s website: https://www.stbaldric...
I am doing this in honor of my best friend, Caroline Terry. Caroline was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia) in November 2004. Unfortunately, she lost her battle in 2005.
I can assure you this gift will be used responsibly. The St. BaldrickĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Foundation is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants. This is a volunteer-driven charity, which keeps fundraising costs low and grants high. In 2012 alone, St. BaldrickĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s granted more than $23 million for research Ă˘â‚¬â€ś almost all raised by more than 31,000 Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“shaveesĂ˘â‚¬Âť like me, from people like you!
You can give online (search for me at www.StBaldricks.org) or by phone (888-899-BALD). Credit cards are the most efficient way to give, or you can write a check payable to Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“St. BaldrickĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s Foundation.Ă˘â‚¬Âť This is a fun way to do something very important.
Thank you for your support!
