Make a donation to St. Baldrick’s and then print one of three special Mother’s Day cards that let your mom know just how much she means to you. Personalize it with your own message or just sign your name and send it with a hug — no postage required.

by St. Baldrick's Foundation
April 2, 2020

Being bald means thinking about hair (or scalp) care in a whole new light. Fortunately, taking care of a shaved head is easy with these six tips.

Every year, tens of thousands of men, women, and kids shave their heads for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. They do it for one reason — to #DFYchildhoodCancers.

Whether you’ve recently shaved or you’ve been sporting the no-hair look for years, do you know the best bald head care practices? Neither did we, so we turned to the men and women who have helped more people go bald than anyone else we know: our St. Baldrick’s barbers.

As you are aware, restrictions on all kinds of community gatherings as a result of COVID-19 are taking place and head-shaving events are no exception.

What to Do If Your Event Has Been Rescheduled or Canceled

by St. Baldrick's Foundation
March 13, 2020

UPDATE: Like all of you, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is well aware of the concerns regarding large public gatherings across the country. In light of COVID-19 and our concerns for the well-being of the entire St. Baldrick’s community, especially the most vulnerable among us, the Foundation’s Board of Directors has adopted the latest CDC guidance for public events.  As Foundation practices never override civil laws, regulations, or public health policies and recommendations, effective immediately, all St. Baldrick’s head shaving events should be postponed to May 15 or later.  While we all hope it will not be necessary, we will monitor CDC guidelines in the event it becomes necessary to extend that deferral. If you have not yet been notified of any changes to the status of your event, please check the event’s page to see if the date has changed, or send your VEO an email and request an update. Their contact information is located on the event page by the event details.
