Headshave auction

From a press release on
Step-mom to 8 year old boy in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida helps raise funds and awareness by auctioning off the shaving of her hair on eBay

Not many people would go to such lengths to raise money and awareness for a worthy cause, but a devoted step-mom is doing just that. In this case, the price of beauty is $2,500 to shave her head. That’s the minimum Valerie DeRoy is seeking to raise for Franklin’s Fan Club.
Franklin, the little boy, has T-cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, and his step-mom is hoping to defray some of the expenses of treatment through this auction.

At this writing, there's still 4 days left on the auction on eBay (it ends on January 3rd), so if you're interested, head on over.

The article includes other ways to help out, if bidding on the auction doesn't appeal to you.
