Today I decided to bite the bullet and register for the World’s Greatest Shave 2007. For those who haven’t heard of it its a charity event for the Leukemia Foundation. The idea is that people sponsor me to shave my head and the money is donated to the Leukemia Foundation.
The Leukemia Foundation supports patients with leukemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. The Foundation provides free support services including:
- Information and resources
- Education and support programs
- Transportation to and from treatment
- ‘home away from home’ accommodation close to major hospitals
- Practical assistance
- Emotional support/counselling
Its a really good cause and the donations are tax deductible so I would appreciate it if as many people as possible sponsored me. I’m shaving my head! I’d like it to be worthwhile 🙂
If you would like to sponsor me you can do so by credit card here. Just click on sponsor an individual, then enter my name and state (Miriam Parkinson, Vic) and enter how much and your card details. Easy!
