What an exciting week of fund raising & sharing my shavee story for St. Baldricks.
On Friday, I chatted with a 3rd grade teacher that takes a worthy cause & gets her students involved in community spirit and giving back. Interestingly, my head shaving coincides with a language arts story they're reading about a bird who gives away his beautiful feathers and is afraid he wont be beautiful on the outside but the moral of the story is the beauty on the inside. I'm fired up to see what they do after she told me what the class did last year! I'm 25% away from my goal & I'm thinking of upping my target. In fact right now, Austin is urging me to!
Making a Donation Page for the teacher's lounge!
I'm humbled and grateful beyond words at friends and family's pure generosity. I was standing in line at JoAnnes yesterday & it dawned on me that I'll be out in the public, with no hair in less than a month, people are going to stare...What do I say? Do I say anything? I was sharing this with Frankie over a FaceTime call & he made me aware that I'd be essentially walking in someone who is going through Chemo's shoes. Talk about an aha moment. But then I get another donation, with a cancer story behind it and I know with every fiber in my body that the time is right for me to do this. Friends ask if I pull my hair back to get an idea of what I'd look like, I'd be lying if I said no! I wake up dreaming about the event too. I'm pretty sure that's normal...well, for me anyhow!
Until next time...
Happy (brave the shave) snapping!
