So there you have it! My sweet Elijah is willing to cut his hair into a mohawk and dye it one of three colors depending upon how much money we raise by Mother's Day!! He thought of this on his own as I was giving Jeremiah a haircut this afternoon. Elijah's hair appears to be short, but it is indeed long enough to have put up into a mohawk and dyed a silly color.
You can make your tax-deductible donation to our Reece's Rainbow grant here and make certain you specify that it is for Elijah's mohawk challenge. Again, if we raise $200 by Mother's Day he will have his hair cut into a mohawk and dyed green. If we raise $400 by Mother's Day he will have his hair cut into a mohawk and dyed red. And if we manage to raise $500 by Mother's Day Elijah will bravely cut his hair into a mohawk and dye it PINK!!! If we raise more than that, well, we will be thankful and maybe make things a little more interesting. As his mother I am O.K. with this and think that it is O.K. to do something a little "crazy" (and not permanent) to raise money for orphans. Elijah especially has a heart for orphans and even plans on advocating for the orphans that Eric and I will have to leave behind once Dima is home. Who am I to stop Elijah's mission work?!
