Then a few weeks ago, I had one of those feathers put in my hair -- pink, not blue. It was fun for a few days, but really wasn't the look I was going for, so I took it out.
Last week, I started seeing #shaveawish all over Twitter and Facebook. It turns out that my friend BgKahuna has offered to shave off his golden locks if people donated $1,000 to a little girl's Make-A-Wish fund.
Kamylle is a 3-year-old girl who lives in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 2010, Kamylle was diagnosed with a condition called Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a cancer of the myeloid blood cells. Her wish is to be a princess and go to Disney World.
After BgKahuna's efforts, Kamylle's wish fund is currently at $1,485.30. The total goal is $6,000.
Maybe it was low blood sugar. Maybe it was midlife crisis. Maybe it was just a way to fulfill my own wish, but I have volunteered to have my hair colored blue if my friends, family and followers (and anyone else who wishes to make Kamylle's wish come true) will contribute another $2,500 to Kamylle's wish fund by November 21, 2011.
Here's how you can help:
- Go to Kamylle's Make-a-Wish page and click the Donate Today button.
- Make your donation -- $5, $10, $100 -- whatever you have to spare.
- In the Special Note section on the donation page, be sure to write Turn 4th Frog Blue so we can track the dollars.
- Invite your friends to help out as well.
