    ST. Baldricks Foundation

    I signed up Friday to shave my head for a worthy cause. Helping kids with cancer while shaving my melon should be fun. I'll post some before and after pics.

    That's a great cause, bird1. I hope that you're able to raise a good amount of money. Reca usually does that as well.

    way cool

    since it is st patties day.. you should dye your head green too
    heck go all out
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Bird I have done this the past three years. Baldricks is a great cause. I am not able to participate this year. You have my permission to post your link and if anyone wants to donate they can.

    This is a very worthy cause - from a personal standpoint I've seen how much organizations like St Baldrick's truly have an impact on research and availability of cancer treatments for children. The 17 month old son of one of my friends has Ewing's Sarcoma and after spending literally more than half of his life undergoing various treatments including the amputation of one of his limbs, he is thankfully in remission at this point. Because of his age, some of the treatments were somewhat experimental and without organizations like St Baldrick's, those treatments may not have been available and the outcome not as positive.

    So if you're able to give even a couple of dollars, please consider donating to St Baldrick's.

    Tell me who to send the check to! What a great thing to do.

    Go to this link and roughly in the middle of the page there are three options for donation - you can donate online, by mail, or by telephone.

    I have been proud to support this cause and authorize the promotion of this on Officer Resource. This is truly a great cause and I am very proud to stand beside the men and women who take part in this.

    I would like to announce that Officer Resource will be donating a small amount of money to the St. Baldrick's Foundation this year.

    Just got home from the event my wife and I had a blast. I am happy to say that the Chicago Police Dept so far has raised $52,468.00 for this noble cause. I was interviewed by CLTV news afterwards here are some pics.

    that is very cool!

    Is this an annual type thing, or something that one can do any time? Hell, I'd post notices in the office for donations.

    To Term and Reca,I suggest next year O/R sponsor someone and start the donations a lot earlier,I admit I procrastinated this year (didn't realize bird only gave us 3 days)and didn't get mine in on time(at least I got Reca last year),Be good for St.Baldricks,Good for the kids,and wouldn't hurt the sight any either.
