I’m Almost Bald!

Actually, I’m not.  I have the exact same amount of hair I had yesterday, plus a day’s growth, which is not a large amount.  But I will be bald the day after tomorrow, March 14, and that is almost here.

As regular readers may recall, I am participating in a St. Baldrick’s fundraiser for children’s cancer research.  I ask people for donations.  I get my head shaved.  Personally, I find asking people for money the more daunting part of the equation.  However,  one must persevere for a good cause.

I did not do as well as previous years in my fundraising endeavors.  Still, I managed to get what I hope is a respectable amount.  People are very generous.  I have perhaps not been as proactive in asking for donations as I was in the past.  Then too, there are many fundraisers going on these days.  Nobody can give to EVERYTHING.

This is how much hair I had last month.

I also have less hair than I have had before previous shavings.  I don’t imagine that matters a great deal (ooh, here’s a Freudian typo for you: at first I put “murder” instead of “matter”).  My shave will never be as dramatic as some of those young girls with gorgeous tresses who also donate to one of those wig charities.  We all do what we can.

Here I am bald!

This was a few years ago, so I will probably look a little different.  I hope to post a picture, so you can compare/contrast.

  1. I donated and posted on my facebook page. (I don’t have a lot of friends but you never know, someone may be inspired!)

  2. “never as dramatic”…but none more heartfelt. You are one of the good ones.
