St. Baldrick's Head Shaving Fundraiser


Update 3/7/18 - Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, I have raised 2,395$ with your support.

Howdy

I always joke about shaving my head but now I am finally going through with it. Yup, March 23rd, 2018 I’m shaving my head with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to raise money and fund cures for kids with cancer. Join me in raising awareness and money for childhood cancer research.

Every two minutes, a child is diagnosed with cancer – that’s 300,000 kids every year. St. Baldrick’s exists to find cures for these brave kids. By raising money and shaving my head, we are helping to fund the most-promising childhood cancer research in the world.


My hair will be donated to Wigs for Kids. Wigs for Kids has been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have lost their hair due  medical issues at no cost to children or their families.

Please help support this cause and my efforts to educate about childhood cancer with your donation to St. Baldrick's today.

Mardi Gras - School Age Program

Howdy
Our Mardi Gras Program was for kids 5+ and we hosted this program at night.  Next time I think we'd consider an after school event as the turnout was low.  During any of the craft time we played the cd Jazz for Kids; Sing, Clap, Wiggle and Shake.  

Book - 
Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast by Josh Funk

Felt - Princess and the Pea and the Pancake
Using the story The Princess and the Pea by Harriet Ziefert, I rewrote the story so that the pea is hidden under 10 pancakes, 10 splashes of maple syrup and 10 pats of butter.  I cut the shapes for each ingredient.  I passed all the shapes out randomly and then had the kids add them to a plate I brought so we could see how high the stack got. I will include the rewritten script at the bottom of the post. 

Craft - Make jester hats using the templates at the link below. You will need construction paper in three colors , scissors, glue and a stapler or tape.
