7 of our colleagues at X-PRESS shaved off their locks to raise funds for the Children Cancer Foundation (CCF) on 29Jul18, including 4 ladies who signed up almost immediately.
“Losing my hair so as to raise awareness to this cause is nothing compared to the poor kids suffering from cancer. At least I have a choice. The kids do not. They just have to do it as it’s Do or Die!”
- said one of the ladies.
This same sentiment was shared by many others. It was a first time for all of us and it started out as a personal effort from each of us to do some good and contribute to CCF in our small ways. We received tremendous support over time from our families,
friends and from our company as well. For the ladies, the concept of shaving their heads might have been personally daunting for a few seconds but became a non-event with the show of support over time.
It was a meaningful experience for all of us and we are glad we contributed to the cause.
We would like to thank all of you for your generous support and donation for raising $89k for this great cause.
