Shaving heads for charity

shaving for charityThe possibility of shaving someone's head seems to be a good motivator for some people, something that Principal Chad Carmack of Dickinson High School (in Delaware) recently discovered.

Apparently, school officials were trying to figure out how to improve their previously dismal efforts at raising funds for the United Way. From the article: "At one point during that conversation Carmack laughed and said, "what do you want me to do, cut my hair?""

That seems to be exactly what people wanted.
School nurse Donna Watson, clippers in hand, approached Carmack with a wide grin. Students began chanting "All Off! All Off!" as she started shaving Carmack's head. Others, cell phones pressed against their ears, called friends to report every move Watson made.
Way to go, Principal Carmack.
