Hello everyone! Welcome to our 2015 St. Baldrick’s fundraiser!!! 2014 was a fun year for us. When we heard about the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, we knew we had found a charity worth fighting for. St. Baldrick’s is a charity that raises money for the mission to help find cures for childhood cancers. We were all kids once, and I (Dustin) have a 3 Year Old of my own and could not imagine the pain and anguish of being a child or a father in that scenario, but you could help! Every dollar counts and goes toward research to help put and end to these horrible childhood diseases.
Again, 2014 was an amazing year. And we made a lot of really awesome contacts and all around nerdy, cool people. We reached out to them and they are on board to help assist us in our mission to make St. Baldrick’s shine and assist these families in getting rid of these diseases. We will be doing a livestream event for everyone who has helped by donating. The livestream will inlcude a live raffle, a 2 hour special edition of The Initiative, and a performance by world steampunk magician, Professor Algernon! Here are the details:
