It's been a weekend like no other. It's Monday morning and you're dreading going to the office...Sunday Fun-day was great, but now you're constantly hitting the snooze button and hung over and feel like your life is terrible...
Now after a couple snooze button clicks, you have finally woken up, showered, dressed and left the house; and now trying to rush to work, having to fight traffic, the line at Starbucks, etc. Life sucks for you.
The real question should be, is life great, or does it really suck for me? You don't think life could ever be worse. You think to yourself, "no one else has to suffer like me...uh...my head, my body, not feeling swell...I just want to stay in bed and sleep all day." Life is terrible...or is it?
I'm sure we've all had some of those exciting times in life that we all think nothing could ever beat us at life being so bad! It's been quite some time since I had the opportunity to feel bad like this. Two years
ago, I realized there is something much worse than waking up and not wanting to go work because I don't feel like dealing with work drama, or just don't care...
It's called pediatric (or childhood) cancer. Imagine being a child and waking up with cancer...
Every two minutes, a child is diagnosed with cancer, and if that statistic isn't staggering, before they turn 20, about 1 in every 285 children in the United State will have or had cancer. I sat there two years ago when I read those statistics and thought to myself, what are we doing to curb this evil?
That's when I came across a wonderful event that my town mayor had been holding. He put together an event called "Shave the Mayor"; where he and other volunteers came together and shaved their heads and raised money for a
wonderful organization called the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Over the past 6 years, his events have raised over $200,000!
The St. Baldrick's Foundation is not like all the other non-profits out there. They are different. Their donations just don't go to some general fund. The St. Baldrick's Foundation is top private funder of childhood cancer research grants in the U.S. and around the world and over $238 million donations have been collected since 2005. The donations go to cancer research grants. Check out Benny's Story and get some Kleenex.
This year, I will be participating again. I am also asking our friends and fans who have supported this wonderful small business, The Fugly Mug Company a small favor. I am asking for your support for this wonderful
I'm shaving my head because Bald is the New Cool!
