[livejournal.com profile] whimmydiddle posted an entry http://whimmydiddle.livejournal.com/500541.html that caught my eye. Since several of you on my friendslist either know [livejournal.com profile] turnberryknkn or at least know someone who has dealt with cancer, I figured I would pass it on. Whimmydiddle has given me permission to link.

Basically Miss Virginia has gotten permission (?!?!?!) to shave her head if she raises $500,000 in donations.
http://voices.washingtonpost.com/reliable-source/2009/03/rs-missvirginia16.html is an article from the Washington Post about it.

St. Baldricks Foundation (http://www.stbaldricks.org/index.php) is a fundraiser for Pediatric Cancer Research (Turnberryknkn's focus) where people will shave their heads (in honor of people who lose hair to Chemo) to raise the money. "The mission of St. Baldrick's Foundation is to raise awareness and funds to cure kids' cancer by supporting cancer research and fellowships."
