Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair.
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen,
Give me down-to-there hair, shoulder length or longer,
Here baby, there momma, everywhere daddy daddy.
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair!
Flow it! Show it! Long as God can grow it, my hair.............
Well, that's what I think Jack will be singing on the evening of March 16. You see, 16 year old Jack has decided to shave his head for the "WORLD'S GREATEST SHAVE" fundraising campaign this year. For any one that knows Jack, they will realise that this is quite a momentous decision for him to do this. He has been wearing his decidedly unkempt 'do' for sometime now, and has many a 'discussion' with his school principal in regards to his "suitability as a representative of his school". You see, Jack has been a student representative on the school council since year 7, and last year was elected as Year 11 Prefect, much to the disappointment of the school principal, who had actually tried to discourage Jack from running, going so far as to tell Jack that he would advise others not to support Jack as "he does not fit the mould of a leader"....
Bah Humbug I say to you Mr Principal!! This child has a good heart and you had better cough up some money as a result of you finally being granted your wish! Of course, maybe Jack will look even more like a rebel with a bald head. What do you think?? Maybe he will look even less like a leader then....... OR NOT!!!
I can't quite imagine what my lovely boy will look like with no hair, and I'm not clever enough to photoshop him to see.......
If anybody would like to donate some money to support Jack in his fundraising efforts, please let me know; any contribution would be gratefully received and forwarded to the Leukeamia Foundation. This is an unashamed request for sponsorship.......... Any amount will be receipted. And it's tax deductible.
You can let me know via this blog, or email me;
I'll post the "after" shots for your viewing
Cheers, Cyndy ;0)
