I am shaving off my 6″ Mohawk!!!

I am shaving off my 6″ Mohawk!!!

By on Dec 20, 2013

I love my 6″ Mohawk but will be bald within the next few months. Why!? …For childhood cancer, that’s why! Around this time last year I discovered a foundation called St. Baldricks. They run a program where you sign up and shave your head to raise awareness of childhood cancer. “We don’t make wigs, collect hair to soak up oil spills or long to be just like Britney Spears–in fact, the shaving itself is just a means to an end. On the surface, we shave because kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, and we stand proudly bald beside them. But the true goal–to cure childhood cancer–will be accomplished because, while shaving, we raise funds for lifesaving childhood cancer research.” Basically I have committed to shave off my 6+ inch Mohawk. I have more than wanted to back out of this a few times already BUT have made a commitment to myself. This was solidified roughly 9 months ago after meeting Danielle from my local chamber of commerce. Danielle is a “Takes no crap from anyone, tell it how it is” kind of person and I like that about her. We quickly became friends after she realised i wasn’t the Antichrist. One day, over lunch we started sharing stories of the past. One of which is why she had short hair. ”St. Baldricks” she said. Danielle had shaved her head for the same foundation I found a few months earlier. She explained the process to me in great detail and at the end of our conversation I said “I’ll do it”. As Danielle’s smile grew she offered to sponsor me for the march 2014 shaving event. Since then I have thought about this on a daily basis. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little nervous about the cutting of my hair but it’s time to start making things happen… “Shavees” sign up on the website, collect money from friends and family much like a walk-a-thon, and show up at a volunteer-organized event in their community to take their turn in the barber’s chair. It’s fun, it’s emotional, and it’s for a crucially important cause.” Learn mere HERE. I am lucky to have access to great resources...

Trayvon Martin Wall Mural – Detroit Michigan

Trayvon Martin Wall Mural – Detroit Michigan

By on Jul 28, 2013

This is for someone I have known for a short time but he has quickly become one of my close personal friends. His Name is Sean and he gives a damn! We met though community efforts from the www.UrbanSeed.info Project. Sean lives in the Detroit and runs a garden called Diversity Garden (help his efforts HERE), provides food to neighbors and wisdom to whomever can benefit. Simply put, I respect him as like-minded person. Check out the News clip from Fox 2 Detroit   Sean is heading a second community project to accomplish : A Public Memorial for the loss of Trayvon Martin (if you somehow missed this – READ the Wikipedia article HERE) Public Art Mural Gathering of like-minded people for a common goal   This is the most recent post from His personal Facebook page. I am sharing it along with a contact form linked to his email (bottom of this post) in hopes that my following outside of the facebook will become involved with his efforts and at the very least share a link to this post with their social media reach including Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. Links can be found at the bottom, including a E-mail link. (Thank you in advance). Anyway, here is the low down… I’m happy to announce that we’ve selected Shep’s Barber Shop, on Hamilton in Highland Park to receive the first mural. Planning is now underway, we hope to be able to expedite all the needed supplies and funds ASAP. At this point I’m calling for help. Detroit area businesses as well as individuals, if you’d like to make a stand with the Martin family right here in our own community, I urge and challenge you to step to the plate and answer our call for your participation!  Step 1: Organization and planning. Over the next few days we will be beating the bushes working to procure all the supplies and equipment needed to successfully pull off this event. We’ll need high quality exterior UV color fast paint and base coat designed for masonry and brick application. I have some scaffolding but we’ll probably need to borrow or rent some additional sections or better yet, we could rent a lift hoist....
