Bikeland Shaves frEEk for Charity - You did it!2012-01-31 23:30
Thanks to all who donated, we've reached the goal! But that doesn't mean you can't still donate. Donation link is still active for any latecomers.
Hair chopping is being organized. Want to help? See my schedule at http://www.bikeland.org/board/viewthread.php?FID=24&TID=65764
Our very own frEEk has been sporting the "Civilization? what's that?" Mountain Man look for a while and we think that he needs to loose the style ASAP. After failing to convince him of the need to get a haircut for his own good, we came up with something that worked: if the Bikeland community can donate $2000 to UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, he will shave the beard and the hair, with the hair going to Locks of Love foundation to be made into wigs for children who have lost their hair due to illness.
So please take part in our drive and give to this highly rated, registered cancer research charity to help research better treatments, and get some valuable entertainment in return

So far we have raised $2,099.44 towards our $2000 goal (updated daily).
About the Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation (JCCF)
JCCF is a public benefit corporation that exists for the express purpose of raising and distributing funds to support leading-edge cancer research at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC). The JCCF was founded in 1945 by a group of volunteers dedicated to cancer research at UCLA. Their idea, using funds raised from private sources to invest in the work of promising young cancer researchers, resulted in the Seed Grant Program, which has helped the JCCC break new ground in the quest to defeat cancer. Although seed grants remain an important part of JCCF's mission, the Foundation today also supports numerous high-priority, multi-disciplinary cancer research efforts focused on rapidly translating discoveries made in the laboratory into improved screening, treatment and prevention.
About Locks of Love
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.
