“I’m shaving my head to raise money for childhood cancer research! Did you know that kids’ cancers are different from adult cancers? It’s true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So I decided to do something about it by raising money for cures.
Now I need your help! Will you make a donation? Every dollar makes a difference for the thousands of infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers.”
“I can’t believe this will be my TENTH head-shaving for St. Baldrick’s and the fight against childhood cancers!
It was February 2007 and I saw the announcement that the Georgia Tech baseball team was going to have a “head-shaving” event to raise money for a charity called The St. Baldrick’s Foundation. I had never heard of this organization, but fighting childhood cancers was definitely a great cause so I used the online communities I frequented to help the team meet…and greatly surpass!…their goals! I was so impressed by the St. Baldrick’s mission and fundraising model that the following year, 2008, I found and joined a head-shaving event near my home and raised over $7,000 with the support of many of the same folks who had answered the call the year before!
Now it’s 2017 and I’m about to get my head shaved for the TENTH straight year! Some of my wonderful friends started going bald with me several years ago, and we became Team Spider Monkey! With your support, TSM’s all-time funds raised for St. Baldrick’s should pass $200,000 this year!
A few years ago, somebody asked me how long I was going to keep doing this. I committed to myself that I was going to make it at LEAST to 10 years! Well…here we are!
If I can reach my 2017 fundraising goal of $5,000, I will commit to KEEP ON’ SHAVIN’ past this year! PLEASE support this great charity…no donation too small (*or* too large!)
