Dadmissions: The Blue Hair Challenge

You’ve probably heard a lot about the ice bucket challenge benefitting ALS research. It has raised millions of dollars and shown the power of social media when it comes to publicizing a cause. So recently I was challenged online by my sister to the new and lesser known Blue Hair Challenge to benefit pulmonary fibrosis research. PF is what our mom died of and like so many causes, it is WAYYY underfunded. The challenge basically meant making a donation or painting my hair blue. I’m sure my sister hoped everyone would just make a donation. I’m taking it a step further. I made a donation -AND- I painted my hair blue (with the kids who were all too willing to help)… and then I told people WHY I was doing it. So yes I look like a SMURF. But smurf it. I raised money for a very good cause.

Oh and then I got my KIDS to take the challenge…



I hope you’ll consider paying it forward to one of the many causes which could use the money… and find me on Facebook at dadmissions… Oh and PS I am re challenging my sister to paint her hair blue… she’s getting married soon… something borrowed something blue… right?
