So, I want to start with St. Baldrick's Day. It's a little different than St. Patrick's Day!! St. Baldrick's is an organization that is fighting to help prevent children's cancer. Around St. Patrick's Day, they hold events where people can have their head shaved to help raise money for the organization. Our principal's daughter, Maddy, is currently fighting cancer. She is in the 3rd grade now. She was diagnosed 2 and a half years ago and is going through some very rough treatments right now. My son Trever (8 years old) has decided to shave his head in honor of Maddy. Both of my boys did it last year. It's not usually a huge deal for boys to have their head shaved but he has actually been growing his hair out the past few months (he is looking a little Justin Bieberish...) Here is a before picture. I will post an after picture after he gets it buzzed:)
And I know you saw GIVEAWAY in the title!! (This giveaway is CLOSED NOW and winners have already been selected) I just recently made some Easter Math and Literacy Activities with graphics by The 3AM Teacher and would like to give away three of them!! AND Mary from Sharing Kindergarten also has a great Easter sorting activity pack that she is giving a way as well. That means you have 6 chances to win!! This is my first give away so I'm a little nervous! Also, I thought that I would donate 1/2 of my profits to our ABC for Maddy Relay for Life team (this is our school team) on any sales that I have from now until Easter on this packet of goodies. So please pass the word on!! I would love to be able to raise some money for our team!!
To win the packet, the only thing you need to do is follow this blog and follow my Teachers Pay Teacher Store and follow Sharing Kindergarten Blog and Teachers Pay Teachers Store. Please leave a comment that you are following both of us and leave your e-mail address so that I can send you the packet if you win!! This contest will go through Sunday, March 25th. I will use a random number generator to find 6 winners!! Good luck to all!!
