We're very proud to highlight on our news page that Joseph McBrayer (better known as HighPlainsDrifter), one of our highly popular and much-loved members on our This Is Who We Are (TIWWA) community forums has volunteered to help raise $500 of funds for children's cancer charity, St Baldricks, by shaving his head!

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is the world's largest volunteer-driven fund-raising event for childhood cancer research. At St. Baldrick's events all throughout the year, brave volunteers shave their heads, raising funds for research. Like runners in a marathon, "shavees" collect donations from family, friends and associates. The Foundation receives these funds and makes grants to research experts to find new and better treatments for fighting kids' cancer.

The Foundation funds local institutions and cooperative research on a national scale to help doctors work together to develop the best treatments for all children with cancer. The St. Baldrick's Foundation provides grants to over 230 institutions for laboratory research and to help make clinical trials available to more children than ever, giving those children treatment that offers the best chance for a cure and long-term survival.

Since 2000, St. Baldrick's has raised more than $69 million USD by hosting more than 2,500 events and shaving more than 108,000 heads in 24 countries and all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

Millennium fan Joe posts, "With having family members that had died from cancer and a close friend that survived cancer I have joined a great organization that helps the cause. They are called St.Baldricks. I am looking for donations to help children with cancer, I am shaving my head for this. If you can help by please donate to this cause."

We're hoping that you can help Joe achieve his goal of raising $500, its really easy to do, just go to his page and click on the Make a Donation button. I was able to make a donation from the UK in minutes, with no registration required. If you're a TIWWA Member, you may like to use the option to display your member name instead of your real name, its completely up to you!


TIWWA wishes Joe every success with this worthwhile challenge and is very proud to sponsor him!
