St. Baldrick's Day
If you are thinking about shaving for St. Baldrick's Day, please let me know. There is a special gift for shavees that takes time to prepare. No expectation, obviously! :)
Here is a special "Thank You" video the St. Baldrick's organization sent out to organizers last week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkWqBey3XhI. It is a 90 second thank you that you may want to show to your class.
Girls wishing to participate in donating hair for wigs for cancer patients, should be referred to this site: http://pantene.com/en-us/experience-main-section2/beautiful-lengths. Girls will be able to donate in this way at our St. Baldrick's celebration.
