Balding for Dollars Update


Well, my Balding for Dollars event was a success. I have raised $717.37 for Children's Hospital (there is still time to help bring it to my goal of $1000 if you'd like to donate). Thanks to everyone who helped with donations, words of support, and especially to Frank for his photography, to Berenice for helping with the cutting, to my wife Daniela for her encouragement and help, and to our kids for their patience. I couldn't have done it without all of you.

There has been one change of plans. I had wanted to donate the hair to a Canadian foundation making wigs for kids with cancer, but couldn't find it. Daniela's google-fu skills were better and tomorrow my hair will go off to the Eva and Co. hair donation program. And to clarify, my son didn't shave his head, we're sending a ponytail from when he went from a long hairstyle to a short one.

Thanks also, to everyone who offered me a toque, but I'm well covered.
