Halos of Hope

I have put my head of hair on the chopping block for a good cause! In an effort to help raise money for Halos of Hope I have agreed to have my hair shaved if by the end of this campaign I don't have enough votes! 

People, we cannot let this happen!

Have you heard of Halos of Hope? Here is a little description from the founder Pam:

Whether you’re male or female, you probably have heard the sound of the clippers.  It's a buzzing sound.  When you hear it as a cancer patient, you suddenly face the reality that your hair is going; then it's gone.  You're really sick.  Especially for a woman, being bald puts a shiny, flesh-colored sign on your head that says, "I HAVE CANCER."

I am a survivor.  Cancer-free for eight years now.  Over five years ago, I started Halos of Hope to provide comfort and dignity to those dealing with hair loss due to chemotherapy or radiation.  Through the generosity of knitters and crocheters everywhere, we’ve sent out more than 72,000 hats.  Our biggest challenge though, is shipping hats to over 450 cancer centers nationwide.  Shipping is our single, largest annual expense.

You can vote for your favorite man to “Save” or “Shave” by donating to Halos of Hope. Online voting starts today, and will continue through October 13, 2012 at noon.  He who has the most votes loses—his hair, that is, and will be professionally and publicly shaved on the STITCHES East Market stage, to support those who lose their hair in fighting ‘the Big C’.


I'm counting on you to help Team Crochet Dude!!!





All proceeds go to Halos of Hope to help send hats to comfort cancer victims!


Also: feel free to snatch that badge for Team Crochet Dude and help spread the word!! I need all the help I can get! It gets cold in October!!

    Buck up, man. Take a walk on the shiny side. You won't believe how liberating it is to not have to worry about "hat hair."
