Spreading the Word - Halftime Lessons: St. Baldrick's Day

sbbutton One of my Entrecard droppers is participating in an awesome fund raiser for cancer research. It's called St. Baldric's and focuses on children experiencing cancer.

I'm Shaving My Head March 21st!!
Are you reading this? Then I need YOUR help! On March 21st I shave my head for St. Baldrick's children's cancer research...Please help by donating $5, $10, $100...whatever you can afford!! Think about it...
if we each give just a little, we could give SO MUCH!!

From the site:

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!

Please take time to help. Either by donating, or going bald!
