OT: Help Cure Childhood Cancer

My fellow musicians! I'm sure many of you have heard of the St. Baldrick's Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping cure childhood cancers.

http://www.stbaldricks.org

The way they raise money is with head shaving events....people commit to shaving their heads in solidarity with cancer patients & raise money through their work/friends/family/church/etc.

My work (Salon Blu in Raleigh, NC) helps out every year at one of the local events by shaving heads. I've hit my (modest) goal of $100 but wanted to reach out to you all. ANY amount you donate would be appreciated....if EVERY forum member donated $1 think of how much money we could raise.

We got involved because my boss's child was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 3. Thankfully he has made a recovery (he's 6 now) through 3 long and hard years of chemo & bone marrow transplants. Many kids are not as lucky as him.

If you'd like to donate, you can go here:

thank you so much for your kindness & generosity!

Do you know if a donation would be considered Tax-deductible?

I'd love to help, but i've got a D-style overdrive i NEED badly and the only way i can swing a donation is if it's tax deductable.

thanks and good luck!

It's a tough crowd here as I've tried many times to get some donations here for Diabetes which I myself got screwed with. I'll tell you what I'll make a donation to Cancer if you can do the same for Diabetes.....:aok

thanks Hot Rats.

i think people are too busy buying Klons and R9s to help kids with cancer though, unfortunately.
