Happy Valentine's Day!
It's been a busy week, and I'm so sorry I haven't been checking in.
Little Guy had to have some minor surgery, and I've been all tangled up in taking care of him and other things.
Wanted to pass on a really sweet act of kindness that a friend sent to me the other day.
It's called the Ugly Beard Contest. I didn't get this up in a timely manner (ok, I only received this a week ago, and I've been busy), so the contest is over, but they're still accepting donations.
The male teachers of the Jordan-Elbridge High School started a contest to see who could grow the ugliest beard. They're in a rural school district which serves a lot of families in need. It costs a dollar or a can of food to vote on which staff member is growing the ugliest beard.
Lots of people feel the spirit of giving around the holidays, which is really great, but sometimes we forget that the families who need help often need it all year round. Their food bank is very low, so they're requesting donations.
This seems to be like a great fundraising project for schools! The male teachers don't have to shave for 2-3 months, so it's almost like casual Friday every day!
But it leaves the ladies out. Can't they include Ugly Armpit or Calf-hair contests too?
