Kelly’s Upside Down Ball


On March 21st, World Down Syndrome day, Robbin Lyons will be donating her hair to Locks of Love in honor of her daughter Kelly, a 5-year-old with Down syndrome who survived Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).

You can help decide: Will Robbin shave it or save it?  

It’s $1 per vote (larger donations are accepted) and all proceeds will go to Kelly’s Upside Down Ball, to help the families in Indiana challenged by Down syndrome and cancer.  The vote will be revealed at the Ball and Robbin’s hair will be cut, or shaved, right on the spot.

To cast your vote, enter your name and email address; use the Donation Purpose dropdown menu and select “In Honor of”; in the box that says “Who is the donation in honor of” type your vote to “shave it” or “save it”; in the box that says “What event is being honored” type “Kelly’s Upside Down Ball (KUSDB)”.

From the Indiana Down Syndrome Foundation:

Help us grow this fund by sending this e-mail to all your friends and family. It’s only a dollar for a great cause! Her goal is to raise at least $1000.00 but we could do so much more with your help! She has taken a whole year to grow her hair. We always tell our kids that it’s no big deal to lose your hair, it grows right back. Robbin is out to prove it!

Thanks to Rebecca for the links.
