We live in an ugly world, that is sometimes full of ugly things, depending on where you look. So it tends to blow my mind when I see friends of mine who have managed to raise great children, regardless of this ugly time we live in and all that is associated with it. Like there are still corners of the world that are pure and caring. While I do not shill for too many causes on this site for various reasons, this cause is too awesome for me not to share. Read on, and open your wallets for a damn good cause. I know last week I asked you to donate because I have no food and am sick of being poor, but take whatever you were going to give to me, and give it to this cause, okay? The cause is much better, and the after effects can change the world.
You guys know the recent uprising of people who have shown their support for Cancer awareness by shaving their heads? Yes, this is that, but with younger girls. While I won’t disclose their ages or identities out of respect (and because they are not doing this for recognition), they are friends of mine, and have decided to shave their heads to raise some money for Cancer awareness. Understand, these are young girls (pre-teens) and to do something so brave, in a time when all young girls are taught pretty is next to Godly, this shows you how mature and genuine these girls are, which is why I am plugging their amazing cause. They are not helping so people will know who they are. They are helping because the genuinely want to help. They genuinely want to help eradicate Cancer, and if this takes the world once step closer to being able to do that, than they have no problem doing it.
St Baldrick’s foundation have been doing these massive “shaving for Cancer awareness” marathons since the year 2000, and have only gained more and more attention over time, and justifiably so. It is a beautiful cause, and a beautiful way to show the collective caring in a world that far too many see as uncaring or cold.
So naturally, when I found out my buddy Deejay’s awesome daughters were going to shave their heads for the cause, I knew this was the first cause I had to really get behind on my site. Not just because my friend’s kids were doing it, but because it showed me that there is still faith to be had in people, in future generations. Heck, in the world.
They are only 20% to their financial goal of $7,000.00, and I would be honored to say my readers helped them reach that goal, and helped kick Cancer square in its ass and out the door, all while giving some props to these two young girls, caring enough to actually want to make a change.
Kinda gives you faith for the future.
I just happened to be born in Saint Patrick’s Day, which is often when they hold these events, and anyone with the urge to get me anything at all, donate to them.
Give in way that gives back. I, and all the world, thank you for it.
