Amount Raised
$10,644.58
Fundraising Goal $10,000.00

I’m helping to beat blood cancer by taking part in the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave!

Sat 16 Mar - Well the big day came and went and together we achieved a remarkable feat to raise more than $10,000. I'm absolutely staggered by the generosity of so many people. Thank you all so much...what an awesome team effort.

Tue 12 Mar - Thank you to all who have sponsored. We broke through $7,500 today and I just can't thank everyone enough. With 3 days to go it's time to start the final push to the new goal of $10,000. I reckon we'll come close. Thanks in advance and look for photos on Friday 15 Mar.

Tue 12 Feb - Alright, it's go big or go home. I've just moved the target up to $7,500. All you wonderful people out there are absolutely blowing me away with your generosity. Thank you all so much.

Mon 11 Feb - Well, I'm taking part in #worldsgreatestshave to support my brother-in-law, who's doing it pretty tough at the moment, and all the other leukaemia sufferers out there. I've been going to do this for years and am not leaving it any longer. So, the countdown has started to Friday March 15 when it all comes off...my hair that is. I've decided I'm going to unashamedly chase donations and if I have to beg then I will beg. I've got nothing to lose and I'm way too old to be embarrassed about what people may think...this is way too important.

Anyone out there who can donate to this fantastic cause to help Leukaemia Research then please click on the link and give, give, give and forward the page to your friends.

http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/peterbender

There are a lot of very generous people out there and as of the time of this post the donations are at more than $3,500 and that's after only a couple of days. I'm blown away by the generosity. Think of what we can get to with 30 days remaining.

Thank you all in advance.

…and yep, that's me in the photo, it might be N-40 years, but it is me.

One final thing, any special requests, with appropriate donation attached, will be considered.

Every day another 35 Australians are diagnosed with a blood cancer. That's one Aussie every 41 minutes. Although research is improving survival, sadly an Australian loses their life to blood cancer every two hours.

This is your big chance to help. Please click the button and sponsor me today!

That is awesome Peter. A good friend of mine is currently fighting AML and it's very tough. She has a 10 year old boy but she is staying strong. Support for new treatments is vital and its wonderful for us to have this outlet to contribute to such a worthy cause. Good luck with the new hairstyle!
