The St.Baldrick's Foundation Fundraiser... Let's Help Conquer Childhood Cancers...Thanks,

Hello! FNLH and So Do Memories members...I would like to know if it will be alright if I post this cause to battle childhood cancer?

Because this is an important cause that a fellow Ning owner have been participating in for 5 years. His name is Ezra Yesterday...I also plan to Offer incentives for donations too!

According to Ezra Yesterday, "It's St Baldrick’s Fundraiser Time again!

 

As some of you know, I participate in one of the many St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraising events held in my hometown every year; this year the event will be on Sunday, March 17th, and will be my fifth year participating.

 

For those who don’t know about St Baldrick’s, it's a nationwide charity that holds events where volunteers have their heads shaved to raise money for Children’s Cancer Research. The purpose is to both take donations and to show solidarity with young kids who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments.

 

As always, once I have raised $1000, I will bleach my hair and dye it green, and I also run a contest at work where teams compete to raise the most money, and the winning team gets to chose what color I spray color my beard on the day of the event.

 

Last year Orange won:

Childhood Cancer Facts:

  • Worldwide, more than 175,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year—that’s nearly the entire population of Jackson, Mississippi. And cancer doesn’t care about borders, race, nationality, age, socio-economic level or religion—it can strike any child at any time.
  • About 60% of all funding for drug development in adult cancers comes from pharmaceutical companies. For kids? Almost none, because childhood cancer drugs are not profitable. This is where St Baldrick’s comes in; we are a volunteer-driven charity dedicated to raising money for life-saving childhood cancer research and funds more in childhood cancer grants than any organization except for the U.S. government.
  • Since the Foundation's first grants as an independent charity in 2005, St. Baldrick's has funded more than $101 million to support the most brilliant childhood cancer research experts in the world.

 

 

At the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, we do one thing, and we do it well: We fund childhood cancer research.

  • Our mission is to find cures for childhood cancers and to give survivors long and healthy lives.
  • We are the largest private (non-government) funder of childhood cancer research grants.
  • Thanks to a grant review system that impresses the experts, we fund only the very best childhood cancer research.
  • By funding cooperative research through the Children’s Oncology Group, we give kids nationwide access to the very latest in research and clinical trials.



So, Please donate on my Participant Webpage and encourage your friends and family to both give and to pass this on as well, so that we can help to conquer cancer in children."
