Hi! On March 1st I am going to be getting the old No. 2 shave for kids with cancer! Why am I not doing The Worlds Greatest Shave, I hear you ask? Because The Leukemia Foundation supports animal testing and animal research despite that it has been proven to be completely irrelevant and void. All proceeds from the donations I receive will be going to a charity called Challenge, a non-profit foundation that offers services and support to children and families affected by cancer. Challenge does not support animal testing.My goal is $500, please show compassion and help me go above and beyond that!
