Colour For A Cure!


I'm taking part in the Leukaemia Foundations Worlds Greatest Shave 2010. Please sponsor me!
.
The funds we raise will help the Leukaemia Foundation to provide practical care and support to patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.
.
On Tuesday, a couple of year six girls from Eglinton Public School where I work, asked me (as a joke) if I would ever get my hair dyed. It was their little commentary on my grey hair.
.
I told them if they raise at least $500 for the Leukaemia Foundations Worlds Greatest Shave 2010 I would shave or colour my hair - their choice which. They thought 'Hot Pink' would be just my colour. I think they were a little shocked when I agreed.
.
The picture above is my photoshopped version of what I expect to look like by the end of the month.
.
I'm going to do it properly too! Not spray colouring or a wash - I'm going to get it bright, pink and permanent colour so it will stay with me for at least a few weeks.
.
So here is the challenge to all the kids and staff at Eglinton Public School.
.
What is it worth to see me with Hot Candy Pink hair?
.
My sons thought this was too good an opportunity to pass up so they have already thrown in some money for the cause.
.
I really have to learn to keep my mouth shut!
.
So, if any of my on-line friends wan't to help out and donate. You can do so through my profile page at the Worlds Greatest Shave site.
