Have you helped the head-shaving kid yet?
A few posts ago, I told you about 13-year-old Travis, who is going to shave his head on St. Patrick's Day to raise money for children's cancer research.
Since I don't have a photo of Travis, I thought I'd use this photo of my old Cabbage Patch doll, Ollie*, to illustrate what Travis and the other brave St. Baldrick's volunteers will look like come Friday. Cute, yes, but his head looks a bit chilly.
The last time I checked, Travis had raised $150, which is great, because his goal was just $100. I've noticed the names of a few of my blog readers in the list of donors, so THANK YOU!!!!! Still, I think he needs more money than this. I wouldn't shave my cat for $150, let alone my own head.
If you'd like to contribute, go to Travis' page on the St. Baldrick's site. You should be donating to Travis Collard of Louisville, KY. If the link doesn't take you there, you can search for him from the main page.
*No Cabbage Patch dolls were harmed in the composition of this blog entry.
