St. Baldrick's Day, a volunteer-driven charity that raises funds to help find cures for childhood cancers is in full swing. The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a national non-profit organization that raises money for childhood cancer research. Volunteers with the organization typically host special events in which they shave their heads in solidarity with children who lost their hair during cancer treatment.
