For the 3rd straight year I will be raising money and shaving my head for St. Baldrick's Day. This amazing organization helps fund childhood cancer research in the hopes that one day all children will be cancer free.
This year I will be shaving my head in Newport, KY at Claddagh Irish Pub inside Newport on the Levee. My goal is to raise $500.00 and every donation (no matter how big or small) helps me reach that goal. This organization has become very important to me and I look forward to the event every year. To show how much it means to me, I will be getting a tattoo of Lucky, the St. Baldrick's Day leprechaun (he can be found on their website listed below), somewhere on my body, BUT only if I reach my goal of $500.00. While shaving my head once a year is a bold statement, getting permanent ink will help me raise awareness year round. In the past I have always fallen short of my goal and this year I want make sure I meet my goal, and hopefully exceed it.
As an added bonus, I am offering lunch, on me, at Claddagh Irish Pub on the day of the event to the person who donates the largest amount of money towards my goal (must be present for the free lunch ).
Here is a youtube video my Fiancee put together to show what we've done the last couple of years:

Thank you so much for supporting me and stbaldricks.org. It means so much to me.
I just wanted to give this thread a quick bump and also reiterate how important this organization is. Even if you live nowhere near the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area I encourage you to donate or volunteer to become a shavee in your own area (all info is in my 1st post above). Every little bit helps in trying to save a child's life. Please, please, please donate if at all possible.
If you have any questions you can ask here, PM me, or find me on Facebook (http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...huaNeilHawkins) or Twitter (http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...3!/DarthMagnus).
I have just over 1 month to reach my goal of $500 and I need help. Even if you can't donate or sign up to be a shavee then please pass word along to friends and family. If you are have a Facebook, I have created an event page with all this information and more (http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/...36313633099687). It would be awesome if you would join it and invite all your friends and family to help raise awareness.
Thank you and Good Journey
