Hey there, friends, Some of you might think this is totally goofy (and it is), but on St. Patrick's Day, I'm going to shave my head for charity, and I need your help. Here's the pitch: We're fighting childhood cancer. I shave my head on March 17th, you sponsor me with whatever feels good ($50 feels pretty good; $100 feels like nirvana) and together, we do more than just raise awareness, we raise serious cash. The event is called St. Baldrick's Day (a whimsical twist on St. Patrick, but obviously, wherever there's cancer, there's a good likelihood you'll find bald heads), and last year, people like you contributed more than $12 million to efforts to fund research and make clinical trials available to more kids. Some of the money also goes to fellowships to encourage the best and the brightest aspiring young doctors to get into the business of fighting childhood cancer.
