It's only the giving that makes you what you are

I know most of you who read this blog are either shavees or will have already pledged another shavee. That's cool, I'm not looking to reach those who are already participating. But if you haven't given yet, and you find it in your heart and pocket book to do so, there is not better cause. Click the image above to go to my shavee site.

I've just assumed that you know what St. Baldrick's is. From

St. Baldrick's is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. Thousands of volunteers shave their heads in solidarity of children with cancer, while requesting donations of support from friends and family.

At a St. Baldrick's event, something amazing happens. People who normally shy away from the very thought of childhood cancer find themselves compelled to support this cause after looking into the face of these brave children who are smiling broadly as their friends and family members proudly display their newly shorn heads.

Volunteers and donors see it can be fun to support a serious cause. Young cancer patients and survivors see how many people care. And researchers see St. Baldrick's funds helping to find cures!
