I’ve always been a little bit of a nut and willing to do most anything…depending on the circumstances. When everything started happening with Penelope, I naturally wanted to help raise money for them. I came across a blog post of Kristen where she announced she was going to shave her head to raise money for pediatric cancer research…St. Baldricks.
I was intrigued.
My mother egged me on…”you should totally shave your head!”
BUT. Then I started to really think about it. It’s just hair. It will grow back.
Maybe I could do this. Maybe I will do this.
So, I’m doing it.
Starting today, I will take donations from you. Right on my sidebar you can donate and track my progress. Every single penny I raise will go to Pennies4Penny.org and my beautiful cousin’s medical bills. She is only just beginning her fight against Stage 4 Neuroblastoma and has a very long and expensive road ahead of her. Why not donate to her and in return, you’ll get some entertaining video of a bald lady?
I even have it on a hunch that Penny’s mom & dad might join in…no promises, but you might be getting 3 or 4 bald heads out of this little adventure.
When the day comes and I have raised $5000.00 I will have a head shaving party! I will video tape it and post the video and pictures here on my blog. The hair that I cut off will be donated to Locks of Love.
Please help me reach my goal!!! You won’t really even be “helping” me, but a sweet little girl who just celebrated her 1st birthday. A little girl that should be looking forward to the rest of her life, not looking out of the hospital window. A beautiful child who should be learning to walk, but can’t because of the grapefruit size tumor that is pressing on her spine. This little girl:
