Hello Linked In!
My son, Justin, along with most of his brothers, is participating in a charity event called St. Baldrics. (Yes, that’s right… in a surprise development, my wonky son has stopped studying long enough to join a frat! Now, it is a frat full of young RPI engineering students. So let’s not get carried away. But it is a frat. Hijinks and shenanigans are involved.)
I digress, though. The young men are fundraising to help promote research into childhood cancer. At the conclusion, they will then shave their heads to raise awareness.
Being a supportive mother, I have made my donation ($250) on the condition that my very camera-shy freshman provide before and after photos.
Now Justin has asked if I can also spread the word to all of you. And if I do that, it seems only fair that you should be able to join in the fun as well. So…. If my Linked In/Facebook community, collectively, matches my donation, I will post those before and after photos for everyone to share at the conclusion of the fundraiser. I mean, this is clearly the only possible response; right? (Diabolical laughter! My children will need so much therapy….)
As an added bonus, if you all double my donation, I will also share with you the very special cheer of the RPI Engineers football team. For perspective, I first bring you this video clip from my alma mater… the Trinity University Miracle Lateral Play. Suffice it to say, nobody in my family will ever be playing football for USC. Or UCLA.
Seriously, please help Justin with this great cause! You can donate here.
