notes de gilles - photobloguemestre

Le 10 juin 2007,
simultanément dans trois villes de la Montérégie,
(Granby, St-Bruno et St-Jean-sur-Richelieu)
s’est tenu le Défi têtes rasées de la Montérégie.
Entre 10 h et 16 h,
plus de 987 personnes se sont fait raser la tête,
permettant de récolter
un montant impressionnant de 542 000 $.
Tout l’argent amassé ira en appui
aux enfants atteints de cancer et à leurs familles.

J'suis d'accord avec Wolfgang,
cette photo est très touchante.

Elle décrit très bien cette activité de levée de fonds
et toutes les émotions que les participants doivent ressentir
lorsque le défi est relevé.

Bravo Johanne pour cette magnifique photo
et aussi pour t'être impliquée toi-même à le relever ce défi !

Amir from ?, Iran

Did you shave her head? very cool, and funny by the way

24 Nov 2007 2:15am

@Amir: The shaving is done mostly by professional hairdressers and apprentices, also some celebrities. It's a big organization with many hundreds of heads being shaved, but the amount of money collected is very impressive. And you are right, the picture is cool and funny...

Illuci from Hurdegaryp, Netherlands

Magnificent action showing solidarity and also very courageous! It will support the people suffering from it and shows that it can happen to everybody. Everybody knows somebody to whom it occurred.

24 Nov 2007 9:32am

@Illuci: Merci mon ami. Johanne a raison d'être fière de sa photo, et surtout de son implication.
