West High teacher Michelle Martins is having her head shaved to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures. Please support her with a donation to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government. Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I’m really asking you to support these kids.
Two years ago, when I participated in this event, it was a last minute decision for me to do so. I challenged my friends to help me raise $500 in less than 24 hours. You all met that challenge. Now I’m giving you two months’ notice, and I wish to challenge you again. If I raise $2,000 before the event, I will shave my head
