    Hey guys its Robby (or you guys know me as Rnc505),

    I'm shaving my head for a great cause called St. Baldricks (http://www.stbaldricks.org/about-us/), which is


    Code:
    A charity where volunteers shave their heads in solidarity with kids fighting cancer and family and friends give generously - worldwide.  The St. Baldrick's Foundation uses the donations to fund more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the United States Government.
    This is a really great cause and I hope you guys donate.

    I'd just like to let you guys know why I'm shaving my head. I shaving my head in memory of my late grandfather, Sanford "Pa" Cohen.

    Pa was a cancer survivor. He had survived and fought multiple bouts of cancer, as well as other problems (a few heart attacks). The cancers he had were both of blood and marrow - Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Myelodysplastic Syndrome. But toward the beginning of 2008 the cancer returned and he fought it like never before. In late June of 2009, the cancer had overcome my subborn grandfather and he passed away. In his memory and honor, I'm proudly shaving my head this year and I'm trying to raise as much money as I possible can.

    If you would like to make a donate (big or small), then please go to:

    http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/rnc505

    I do not benefit from you donated via my page (I don't recieve a % or get anything from my school from getting donations or being a top donator), but it just reflects upon my efforts of trying to raise as much as I can for this great charity.

    If I haven't sold you on it already, St. Baldrick's is a 501(c)3 organization (non-profit charity), so all donations are TAX-DEDUCTABLE!

    Please, if you have $5 to donate or $500 dollars to donate, I realize that these may be hard times, but try to be as generous as you can to this, in my opinion, great charity.

    Thank you very much,

    Robby Cohen

    I'm actually surprised.

    I understand that a worldwide recession is going on (atleast in some places), but this is BHW and what a better way to give back than to Child Cancer Research.

    I'm in high school, and money is important to everyone, but I've donated My previous few months of earnings in Adsense to this cause.

    Not one person has even donated (I don't know about clicks because I'm not tracking them) and seeing how large this community is, that is extremely surprising.

    I'm the first to say the BHW is a great place for everyone to make money, but I've actually lost a little faith in this place.

    Please don't flame me for my observations and speaking my mind about them.

    Thanks guys,
