CCF Hair For Hope

Recently, I received a shout-out on facebook from the hubby's university friend Dr. R (who also just got his PhD, congrats man!) that he's going to take part in Hair For Hope (2011) conducted by the Children's Cancer Foundation (CCF).

Hair for Hope is a CCF initiative which encourages members of the public to step forward to shave their heads for five very good reasons:
1) Create awareness of childhood cancer in Singapore
2) Raise funds to help children with cancer and their families
3) Show them that they are not alone in their fight against cancer
4) Build a community of support for them
5) Tell children with cancer that it is OK to be bald

I have always wanted to take part in this campaign, but always chickened out at the thought of having no hair. So I'm actually very impressed that Dr. R is shaving his head again (yup, he did it last year).

As with the year before, Dr. R is once again raising donations to create awareness so head on over if you'd like to donate in support of him. I was going to give a small donation as well but for some strange reason I filled up my particulars and credit details like a gazillion times but the transaction did not go through. Seriously, why does the internet make it so easy for me to buy a dress but so difficult to donate? *Sigh*

So I have no choice but to just give a shout out from my blog and hope that some of you will be lucky enough to have your transactions approved.

If you've been blessed by my Understanding Pediatric Cancer series and feel that you would like to support as well, you can do the following:
1) Become a Shavee
2) Donate to CCF
3) Become a volunteer

More information can be found on CCF's website.

As the Chinese saying goes, "He who has money, give money. He who has strength, give strength" (literal translation), which means to do what you can within your capacity.

Let's do our part to support children with cancer and their families :)

P.S: Oh and one more thing, this blog finally has a facebook page! Please head on over and 'like' it to receive the latest updates. Thanks a million!
