I am so pleased and honored that through Love is Bald , P3 was asked to face paint for the St. Baldrick’s Event on Saturday March 17th at Fibber McGee’s. My lovely volunteers and myself had a wonderful time and raised money too!
I can not even begin to explain the emotion that ran over me at the end of the day. First I have to tell you that 23 has always been my lucky number, and originally I was going to give 90% of my proceeds to St.Baldrick’s and just wanted enough to help offset some of my costs. As the day progressed and I saw some amazing men, women, children, those with scars who may have been ashamed, others who cried but gave up their hair to benefit others. When I see events like this it inspires me and makes me want to give back even more than ever before!! I decided to give all my proceeds to St.Baldrick’s with the original hope that I could donate $500.00. I counted my money and my total was $223.00. (Lucky Number) I immediately got cold chills and couldn’t hardly think. I turned my money in and we started to pack up only to come back to a table full of girls who wanted their faces painted. We unpacked our stuff and began to paint again adding within five minutes to our total another $20.00. Making it $243.00 for the day. Keep in mind that some people were giving us $20.00 bills. Thank you to everyone who can out and helped support such an amazing event!!
MUCH LOVE TO WILMINGTON!!!
