I'm Raising Money For Leukamia

Recommended Posts

As the title says, I'm raising money for leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder. For those that don't know, coming up in March is 'The World's Greatest Shave'. It's where people shave or color their hair to raise money for cancer. This year I have decided to join in and shave my head.

 

All money raised will go towards the support of patients suffering such illness' and research.

 

Some facts...

 

- Blood cancer research is expensive but vital. The money you give will help fund important research into leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood disorders.

 

- Every 46 minutes someone in Australia gets the news they have blood cancer. The money you give will also support them from diagnosis, during their treatment and beyond.

 

If anyone would like to sponsor me and help such an important cause, I'd be very grateful. Just click on the link which will take you to my page. I'll be more than happy to post before, after and during photos. The shave it's self will take place Saturday 17th March.

Is this for international or is it just for the people in Australia?

Yesterday was the day and we had a great afternoon tea and shave. It looks like I'll raise over $1,000 which is just awesome for the Leukemia Foundation. Here are some before, during and after photos.

Well done.

 

My Great Aussie shave date is tomorrow week.

 

Some teachers are doing it at school. Why? Not only is it a good cause, but one of my friends, a teacher at school, his 4 year old daughter has recently been diagnosed with leukemia.

 

So a 1 all over.

 

I have had a number of cash donations, but none online ...yet.

 

So help out if you can. Give you Maesie or give to me. Your call. I am not in it for personal glory. For me, I am in it as it is personal. I lost my best friend when I was 12 due to Leukemia. Now a friends of mine's daughter has Leukemia. Help find a cure people.

 

Sponsor me for the Great Aussie Shave

 

If you can help please do.

 

Thanks
