Balding for Dollars 2010!!

Help me support childhood cancer and blood disorder patients by donating to the Balding for Dollars program and by joining this event and inviting everyone you know to help raise awareness.

“Balding for Dollars is an event initiated by parents and hospital staff touched by childhood cancer and blood disorders with the goal being; to raise community awareness for childhood cancer and blood disorders, provide funding to support the oncology program at BC Children’s Hospital and support children and their families during and after treatment.”

From now until May 8th I will be gathering pledges to raise money for the Balding for Dollars program. In return I will be shaving my head to support the “bald is beautiful” mandate.

——————————————————————————————
The donations are split up approximately like this:

40% to financially supporting families who have a child with cancer; Balding for Dollars will help out with supplies, medication costs, and transportation costs (especially for families who live outside the Lower Mainland)

20% to pediatric oncology research at BC Children’s Hospital

20% to education bursaries and scholarships for childhood cancer survivors and their siblings

14% to running teen adventure camps for childhood cancer survivors and their siblings (they’ve done dogsledding, surfing, and white water rafting camps to name a few)

6% to running the Balding for Dollars campaign
