Griffiths' Guys

From March 16-19, the Leukemia Foundation hosted their annual World’s Greatest Shave to raise awareness and funds to fight against blood cancer. This year, both my younger brother Matthew and I decided to join the cause and pledge our heads to be rid of golden and brown locks of hair. Although we would like our reason to be of an altruistic nature, we were both excited for the opportunity to see if we could pull off the ‘bald’ look. This would be a new chapter in the Griffith’s boys previous hairstyles of mullets, perms, emo fringes, hipster and the soon to be forgotten man-bun. As we hope to be compared to the likes of Vin Diesel and Bryan Cranston from Friday 17 March, we ask our family, friends and those in the community to help sponsor for this great cause and to learn of the many ways they can contribute to the Leukemia Foundation. - Jacob Griffiths
