St. Baldrick's

My favorite fish/meat shop is Poppy's in Morgan Hill. A couple of weeks ago, Mike the owner, said he had signed up to join the Morgan Hill Police officers and have his head shaved in aid of St Baldrick's, a kids cancer charity. Very impressive to have 18 police officers do this I know, but my first thought was their hair is pretty short anyway. Mike however had LONG hair- way past his shoulders, halfway down his back. I took a picture of him a few weeks ago but it doesn't show his pony tail.

I missed the event itself but I did take a photo of a photo..

Today I saw him for the first time since the event..

It's growing back already!

PS Mike raised $4,100 for St. Baldrick's and the police officers raised $13,000. Mike also donated his locks to Locks for Love- another non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Great job all round!
