World Down Syndrome Day and Kelly's Upside Down Ball

On March 21st, World Down Syndrome day, Robbin will be donating her hair to Locks of Love in honor of her daughter Kelly at Kelly's Upside Down Ball. But you can help decide, does she give it all and leave BALD or does she get to keep a little on top? Yes, it's up to you to vote! Does she shave it or save it?

It's $1 per vote and all the money goes to Kelly's Upside Down Ball to help the families of individuals who have a dual diagnoses of Down syndrome and cancer in Indiana.

Wanna vote? Go to HERE
Where it says donation purpose scroll to "in Honor Of" then type in save it or shave it for who and KUSDB for the event. At the ball we'll announce which side wins and if Shave It wins, Robbin will shaved it off right there!

Help grow this fund by sending this blog link 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 she could do so much more with your help- she has grown her hair since the last Ball a year ago. We always tell kids with leukemia that it's no big deal to lose your hair, it grows right back. Well she is out to prove it! So let's have some fun, help a good cause and cut for a cause!

I've tried the link to KUSDB twice; no luck. Is it just me?
