BIG News!

This morning, the 46 Mommas hit our goal of raising ONE MILLION DOLLARS for childhood cancer research! For the past three years, over 100 mothers have shaved their heads in solidarity with their own children and the 46 children diagnosed with cancer every weekday. The lofty goal may have seemed out of reach at first, but the Mommas were determined to raise awareness and funds for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, and after three national shaves and dozens of local events across the U.S. and Canada, here we are!

I'm so proud and honored to be a Momma today, and I want to say THANK YOU to the many Friends of Georgia who have donated to St. Baldrick's since The Peachy Keens' first shave in 2010. You have helped fund lifesaving research and, hopefully, guaranteed happy endings for more families touched by childhood cancer.

And we're not done yet! On June 30th, I'm thrilled to be bringing a national shave event to San Antonio - we'll be celebrating hitting the million Texas-style! More details to come, but I can tell you it's going to be one big party with Mommas past and present continuing the momentum for the Mommas of the future. We all look forward to the day when no mothers have to shave their heads or children have to sell lemonade or families and friends have to walk, run, or bike in order to raise awareness and critical research funds for our littlest - and bravest - cancer warriors. And I really believe we can get there, someday. Until then, the 46 Mommas and the Peachy Keens will continue to bring love, light, and HOPE to this fight, and we'd love for you to join us.
