4-30-14 – I’M SHAVING MY HEAD IN 3 DAYS!!!!!! AHHHH!!!!
I’M SHAVING MY HEAD IN 3 DAYS!!!!!! AHHHH!!!! PLEASE HELP US RAISE $5,000 BY DONATING HERE: GINAgoesBALD
So, this brings me to my excitement for our fundraiser on Saturday. We are holding a St. Baldrick’s Foundation Head-Shaving Fundraiser at HPF this Saturday at 3pm. Myself, Mike, and 6 other TEAM HPF members have pledged to shave our heads in efforts to fight childhood cancers. This non-profit organization has always been highly ranked on the efficiency of their systems and use of fundraised dollars to further research on children’s cancer.
This cause holds a place in my heart. My mother died from aggressive breast cancer and my father from ALS (no known cure), so I can attest to how important treatments and research for those treatments can impact a patient’s life and their families. I wanted to cut my hair for about a year now and things kept coming up that made me wait longer and longer to do it, like my wedding, and the freezing cold Chicago winter. I thought to myself that if I can raise thousands of dollars by simply making it public that I’m going to cut my hair to support a great cause, then I’m going to do it. These kids need us more than we can understand!
We have already raised close to $3,000 to date and are aiming to raise another $2,000 by Saturday to reach our goal of $5,000! If you’re reading this and can help us with a donation of any size, please click here: GINAgoesBALD to donate online with a credit/debit card. If you’re close enough to attend our event, we would LOVE to see you there! I’ll probably need a few people to hold my hand while I get my head shaved! See you there!
