St. Baldrick's Update

After only a few days there seems to be a little bit of local interest in getting to see John with a bald head. Siblings have made donations that are higher than their previous donations and co-workers are ganging together to try to raise $300 of the additional $500 needed to push the boys up to the $2000 mark; donations and commitments are already coming in.

I'm hopeful that some of my church friends will also add a few bucks towards the cause. And I'm sure that my follicle challenged friends (that I may have teased at one time or another) will want to have their moment to get back at me and toss 20 bucks or so in the pot.

If you need to read the original challenge, you'll find it here.

Maybe a few of our relatives that have reconnected through Facebook will encourage these young guys to continue in their community endeavors as they are already working to help people that face challenges far greater than their own. All you have to do is click on the link here, then on the "make a donation" and you're on your way.

There may even be a few classmates or NATCA members that have dealt with childhood cancer (or any cancer) and want to take part.

I make no promises about doing this again next year. This may be your only chance to see me with a shaved head (unless nature steps in). Next year it may have to be Uncle Steve!

Give early! Give often!

John <><

head shaving is best reserved for the long-time married uncles. Steve
