The Talker and I are getting ready to get our beauty on. In a couple of weeks we will be participating in a St. Baldrick's head shaving event. St. Baldrick's funds pediatric cancer research. This is an issue that has become very personal to our family, thanks to an amazing teen neighbor who has battled aggressive tumors this entire school year.
The Talker has already collected more than $500, eclipsing his current $250 goal. (He originally hoped to raise $100). I am almost to my goal of $265. Last year I tried to raise $500. I fell short by $15. So this year when I planned to raise $250, The Talker reminded me about the shortfall from last Spring. Thus, my $265 goal.
I was planning to post a link here to our participant fundraising pages but I decided against that since those pages are all listed under our real names. I know you are flabbergasted to learn that his name isn't ACTUALLY The Talker. I feel sorta like a fraud...
If you would like to donate to The Boy, please contact me and I'll direct you to his collection page. I'll be sure to post some pictures after we get our melons all bald and beautified.
