I am getting rid of all of the hair on my noggin to raise money for the HOPE center which supports victims of domestic and sexual violence.
The St. Olaf Heads for Hope event is comprised of students who are pledging to shave their heads in order to raise awareness about sexual and domestic violence. We want to fight these issues by raising awareness and raising funds!! To give you an idea of how many people this effects: 1 in 4 women are sexually assaulted by the time they leave college and 1 in 8 men are sexually assaulted throughout their lifetime. I am really frightened by these numbers and want to help the HOPE center provide support and healing to individuals affected by these forms of violence. On November 15th, I will be shaving my head for the cause. Help me spread the word and support the HOPE center! 100% of the proceeds will be going to the Hope Center!!
