This comes just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. You can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day chugging down green beer or getting your head shaved for a good cause. On March 17th 2000 reinsurance executives Tim Kenny, John Bender, and Enda McDonnell decided to host a St. Patrick’s Day party, to benefit kids with cancer. The three hoped to raise $17,000 on the 17th but the benefit was such a hit they ended up raising $104,000.
From then on the benefit blossomed into the St. Baldricks’s foundation which funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any other organization; except the U.S. government. There are several ways to participate.
-You can become a St. Baldrick’s shavee and shave your head in solidarity of kids with cancer while raising money from friends and family.
-If shaving your head is too much you can become a volunteer and recruit shavees, promote the event, and make sure the day is successful.
-You can help bring St. Baldrick’s to your community. Every event is planned by a volunteer event organizer with help from coaches at the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
– You can make a monetary donation and more.
