I've had long hair since I was about 15 and its time for it to go, and go for a cause. On Friday 16th December I will be shaving my lovely locks in front of 600+ school students to raise money for the Baird Institute (http://bairdinstitute.org.au/) in Sydney who conduct research into heart and lung surgery.
The reason I have chosen to donate this money to the Baird Institute is that in 2009 my younger brother underwent open heart surgery at the hands of the endlessly talented Professor Paul Bannon at RPA supported by the Baird Institute and I'd like to do my small part to pay back both their dedication and their support.
I'd like to raise at least $3000 but $5000 would be even better and I will be donating the first $500 because its a worthy cause.
All donations over $2 can receive a tax deductible receipt once I pass on the list of donors to the Baird Institute.
My sincerest thanks for your support.
