Friday, February 20th, 2009

have a huge favor to ask of you. As many of you probably know, this time of year St. Baldrick’s events begin happening and I’m sure many of you have been solicited for donations.  If you don’t know about the event, the website is a great description but it is a fundraiser for cancer research and is specifically geared towards children’s cancers.  Well, this year my cousin is raising funds and shaving his head in honor of my Uncle who is currently undergoing chemotherapy.  So, the favor? Help my cousin reach his fundraising goal with any little bit you can! I know times are tight, and I apologize for abusing the power of this email, but it really is for a great cause!  Even if you can’t donate financially, perhaps consider donating your time to this event of a similar one in your area.  Thanks you guys!
