Randomly Kind on Days 7 and 8

Day 7 - Sunday - I spent most of my day at home reading which made it a little difficult to do something randomly kind; however, I was given the perfect opportunity to do something nice on my quick trip to the grocery store. On the way back to my apartment I slowed down to let someone merge into traffic in front of me. Once again, this is something that too seldom happens in my city of residence. People either don't notice signal lights or simply cannot be bothered to let other drivers in.

Day 8 - Back to work Monday and an act of kindness first thing. I left a bouquet of flowers outside the door of my hair stylist's salon. I left a little anonymous note, but since she knows that I am doing this challenge, she knew right away that it was me. I made her day and her happiness made mine!

The flowers were my only plan for the day, but something truly random popped up. At lunch, I noticed a colleague was a lot quieter than she typically is during our lunch breaks. Not wanting to put her on the spot, after lunch I sent her a short little email with a funny picture attached and told her I hoped all was well. She responded that she was having a rough day and thanked me for the reminder to smile!

I really love this challenge!

A little more low-key today, but still kind none-the-less. As a man was struggling to pull a load of boxes on a trolley cart out two sets of doors, I quickly changed my point of exit so that I could assist him with his feat. Too many times I've had my arms full and/or had a door slam shut in my face. Too many times I've seen someone struggling to open a door for themselves with their arms full while people just walk right on by as if the person struggling is completely invisible. It's not that difficult to hold open a door - so I do it at every opportunity I can.

On a side note to Day 6 - in response to my boyfriend's phone call in which he told me he was thining of buying a big screen tv and all of the technological fixings to make it double as a computer, I said, "Ok Hunny." - I think that counts!

Day 5 and 1/8

40 divded by 5 equals 8; therefore, I am 1/8 of the way through the 40 Day Challenge; Act of Random Kindness. Not that I want it to end; in fact, I think I will keep going with this for as long as I can. I do try to live my life like this on a daily basis, opening doors, giving out compliments, smiling at people, but making a conscious effort to do something a little different and extra kind usually doesn't happen daily and that's why I love this challenge.

So day 5 (which was actually yesterday, but I didn't post yesterday) I bought two people, who I know stop for coffee everyday at the same little shop that I do, their coffee before they came in to get it. My friend is the manager of the place so I told her I'd pay for the coffees and when they came in she was to tell them it had been paid for, but not tell them who had paid for it. Apparently it was quite a funny scene when they came in to get their daily dose of caffeine. He thought she paid and she thought he paid and then they both thought that my friend, the manager, paid. After some figurative arm twisting my friend let my secret slip and revealed my identity. It couldn't have worked out more perfectly!

For my second act, I delivered an order from our campus print shop to someone so they wouldn't have to come and pick it up themselves.

This gal is all smiles 'cuz she does good things for people!

Random Acts on Day 4

I find it quite enjoyable making a conscious effort to pay attention the good things I do everyday.

Today I made a point of filling the communal photocopier with paper BEFORE it totally ran out. I honestly don't think anyone ever does this. Everytime I went in to copy something today, I checked the paper tray and made sure it was full. While this may seem insignificant to some, to anyone who works in an office, an empty paper tray in the middle of a job is in the running for the most frustrating thing that can happen in a busy day. I hope, by keeping that tray full, I made someone's day a little less frustrating.

My second good deed technically will not take effect until tomorrow, so it may count for today or it may count for tomorrow. The end of my work day consists of making a round of the first floor of my building to turn out all of the classroom lights and lock all of the doors. Today, on the chalkboard of each open classroom, I wrote, "Have a Fantastic Friday!" Tomorrow, I hope my random message brings a few smiles to a few strangers' faces.

On a final note, I don't like wine. I wish I liked wine. In fact, I hope to train myself to love wine. My boyfriend, however, does love wine and so, on the way home from work, I stopped and bought him a bottle of wine from his favorite line of Chileans. Perhaps I can love wine by osmosis!

Day 3

I did a few kind things today.

1. Paid special attention and held doors open for everyone coming behind me through the same doorways.
2. Made a point of checking in on a colleague I knew had a root canal done yesterday.
3. Tipped my esthetician twice as much as I normally would.

Those are the smaller things I did that just happened to come my way today. On a more planned note, I sent emails, text messages, and photo facebook messages in an attempt to get my friends and family to smile! I was quite successful if I do say so myself!

Day 3 done and lovin' this challenge!

Day 2 of 40-Day Challenge; Random Act of Kindness

Today my random act of kindness really wasn't all that random, but it was kind and it was a surprise to the recipients none-the-less.

On my morning trip to the coffee shop to get my daily dose of caffeine, I also purchased two small mochacinnos for two ladies I work with. I was thanked with hugs of enjoyment!

In case you are wondering, a mochacinno is espresso with steamed chocolate milk, topped with whipped cream. Yum!

40-Day Challenge; Act of Random Kindness

I got this invite on facebook and really couldn't resist:

For 40 days starting on November 1 and ending December 10, see if you can do one nice thing for someone else. You can take it to the next level and complete random acts of kindness each day. If you miss a day of kindness, you start over as day one again.

I am seeing way too many declines. There is no reason why you should decline this. What, you can't do a simple Act of Random Kindness for one day or 40?

What are the benefits?
It makes the world a better place.

When we give from the heart, we do so out of a joy that springs forth whenever we willingly enrich another person’s life. This kind of giving benefits both the giver and receiver. The receiver enjoys the gift without worrying about the consequences that accompany gifts given out of fear, guilt, shame, or desire for gain. The giver benefits from the enhanced self-esteem that results when we see our efforts contributing to someone’s well being. ~ Marshall Rosenberg

I feel the need to reiterate: "There is no reason why you should decline this." It's that simple; so I didn't.

Day 1 of the 40-Day Challenge - I took the spare change out of my wallet and put it into random parking meters at the university where I work. Parking is such a hassle there and the parking guard does her job very well. I hope I saved a few people unwanted parking tickets today!

Done Deed

Alright folks, I know I've been a tardy blogger, but I have been BUSY - you know, shaving my head and stuff! This post is going to be a whole lot of photos for your viewing pleasure. This is the beginning of the end of my lovely long locks. After quartering into ponytails, Shelley brought out the clippers, with no guard, I might add!

Those four little ponytails will be donated to Pantene Beautiful Lengths where they will be made into wigs for women with cancer. On their website, Pantene states, "A real-hair wig allows a woman to look in the mirror and at least see a familiar face while she fights to regain a sense of normalcy in her life." After a little googling I found out that to buy a human-hair wig, a woman is looking at spending at least $1000. Through Pantene Beautiful Lengths, women across Canada, are provided with these wigs free of charge.

I swear I am not about to cry in this photo as much as it may appear that way. At this point the back of my head is fully shaved and Shelley is working her way up to the top and front.

Ok, now this one really does look like I am crying - ha! I'm not, I promise. I think my mom may have shed a few tears for my lengthy locks, but I was A-ok the whole time.

See - all smiles! Four ponytails to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, at this point - $3050 to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa, and I really could not be more pleased. Since then, I've made it to nearly $3500 which is $1500 away from my final goal of $5000. I met phenomenal people who work and volunteer with the Stephen Lewis Foundation. I met three incredible women from Malawi who are working with and benefiting from the funds that are being raised by things like my head shave.

These are those inspiring people. Tanja, Joanne, Manass, Ruth, Carol, Healy, and Rosemary. A piece of my heart is with them always. I am truly blessed to have spent a little over 24 hours each of them.

And now, avid blog readers, you are in for a special treat.

These are my people; my groupies; my minions; my life loves. Without them I could not do what I do each and every day. Every one of these smiling faces has had some part in the long road to this head shave. Starting at the top left: Gemma, Jocey, Shannon, Corissa, Amy. Bottom left: Abraham, Elias, Haley, Immaculate, Ang.

$1500 away from $5000 - open your hearts and your wallets and donate!

$2500 and UP!

On Wednesday, September 22nd, I met my second DARE goal of $2500. I reached that goal because I am surrounded by phenomenal people with BIG hearts! 72 phenomenal people to be exact! Friends, family, colleagues, and even people I've never met, comprise the group of people who have made this $2500 possible.

To each and every one of you, I say THANK YOU from the very bottom of my heart and with every essence of my being.

I shave my head in 22 days on October 17th - the official launch date for 'A Dare to Remember' is October 19th - and while dares can be carried out at anytime, the official end date of the campaign is Dec. 1st. I've upped my goal to $5000 - do you think WE can do it?!

Less Than One Month and the Afri-Grand Caravan

Time has flown. I'm $125 from my second goal of $2500 and it's less than one month until it all comes off. I can't wait.
The whole thing is going down on Sunday, October 17th at Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School in Brandon MB. On that same day, the Afri-Grand Caravan will also be making a stop in Brandon on its cross-Canada tour. Brandon is one of 40 communities in Canada that the Stephen Lewis Foundation, along with an African grandmother and granddaughter, will be visiting. The two women from Malawi will tell their stories, share their strategies, and talk about their challenges and triumphs in dealing with the ravages of AIDS. These African women and girls are at the heart of grassroots efforts that are assisted by the funds raised by the Stephen Lewis Foundation and people like me!

Consider this your official invitation to the event!

We're going to have coffee and snackies from Forbidden Flavours, a great afternoon of chit chat, and we'll end off the day with the loss of my locks, followed by a henna tattooing of the Dare logo on my bald scalp.

Be there or be square!

Meet Karen

In my last post I mentioned that I do some freelance for Suite101. I want to share a story with you about how wonderful the world of social media actually is despite all of the negativity it receives in terms of privacy and all that noise.

I have never met Suite writer, Karen Stephenson. One day, I got a random Friend Request on Facebook from her hoping that we could network as we were both writers for the online site. We chatted every now and again on Facebook and through email and took a liking to each others writing. When Karen heard about my head shave, she took it upon herself to do a special interest piece on me and my story. At Suite we make money when people click on the advertisements Google associates with our articles, so it isn't likely that Karen will make much more than a few bucks on the article she wrote about me, but that is simply not the point. The point is that Karen thinks what I am doing is admirable and to show her support (in addition to the donation she gave me) she took the time to do some research, do a mini interview with me, and publish the article. Now, I will spare you the negativity that initially resulted from some editorial comments, because, it just makes my blood boil slightly more every time I think about it. What matters, is that the article has been approved and is up for public viewing.

Here it is: Stephen Lewis Foundation Helps AIDS Orphans in Africa.

The original title was a lot more interesting, but one of the things the editor asked to have changed. "Brandy Robertson: Suite101 Writer to Take it All Off for Charity" was the original title. See, much cooler!

Anyway, as I mentioned in my last post, we also get stats per article so we can see how people are finding our articles. Karen shared the latest stats with me and this is what they showed people are searching for:
  • Brandy Robertson Brandon MB Radio Interview
  • Brandy Robertson Radio Interview
  • Brandy Robertson Brandon MB
Pretty cool, if I do say so myself! People are freakin' googling me!

Anyway, my point of this post was to introduce you all to Karen. So please take a minute and check out some of her pieces. Karen Stephenson @

Because That's How I Roll

Alright, so on top of being a full time staff member and student at BU and volunteering for a bunch of organizations, I dabble in freelance writing for Suite101, an online magazine and writers' network. With that said, I decided to write an article in honour of my HEAD SHAVE and beautiful bald women everywhere. The article is called Beautiful and Famous Bald Women. Suite101 keeps track of the number of Page Views (PVs) an article receives in order for writers to see how well their articles are doing in terms of being searched. Because that's how I roll, I've decided to commit $0.14 to my own campaign for every PV that "Beautiful and Famous Bald Women" receives. Why $0.14? Because there are an estimated 14 million children in Sub-Saharan Africa that have been effected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Since the article doesn't allow images within the text, I wanted to insert the gorgeous and inspiring images of the women about whom I wrote in this blog. Here goes!

  • Amber Rose, a model known for her unique ghetto-punk style and current girlfriend of musician Kanye West.
Eve Salvail, a supermodel known for her bald head and dragon tattoo, she's an actress, dj, and stock broker.
Cate Blanchett, best known for her role as the title character in Elizabeth, she shaved her head for a role in the 2002 film, Heaven.

Natalie Portman, a well-known actress, was shaved bald for a scene in the 2005 movie, V for Vendetta. Isn't she absolutely gorgeous?! My hope is that I look as wonderful as her!

Demi Moore, as G.I. Jane, she played what is, likely, the most kick ass female role ever to grace the big screen. HU-AH!Alright, there you have it readers - some of the most beautiful bald women you will ever see. Can't wait to join the Bald Beauty Club!

So remember, for every PV that Beautiful and Famous Bald Women gets on Suite101, I'll be donating $0.14 to my campaign. Go, now, and tell all of your friends :)

Radio Interview

So on Tuesday, July 13th I was invited to do a morning radio spot on both KX 96 and 101 The Farm in Brandon. KX 96 is a rock station and that is where I had my first interview/plug. Try as I may, I cannot load the mp3 file onto this blog so below is the transcription of the 4 minute, 22 second, radio spot.

Brody Allan (BA) - KX 96 Radio Host: "I'm joined by Brandy Lyn Robertson - Brandy, how are you today?"
Brandy Robertson (BR) a.k.a - MOI: "I am awesome!"
BA: "It's bright an early, is that ok?"
BR: "O ya - that's fine."
BA: "You're awake?"
BR: "I'm awake. I'm good."
BA: "You've had a million coffees?"
BR: "No actually, no coffee yet." (both laugh)
BA: "At some point down the road."
BR: "Ya, very soon."
BA: "Now Brandy, you are doing a thing, it's called Dare to Remember, correct?"
BR: "Ya. You bet!"
BA: "And what is the basis of what exactly you are doing? You're trying to raise some cash for..."
BR: "Basically, it's for grassroots organizations in Africa and it's for the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign which is basically grandmothers who raise their grandchildren because the middle generation has been wiped out by the AIDs pandemic. So, the money that I raise goes to the Stephen Lewis Foundation which then goes to these organizations in Africa."
BA: "Now you mentioned that Stephen Lewis is one of your heroes, probably one of your biggest heroes that you have out there. Is there a specific reason? Like, is it because of his causes and everything that he has going on for him?"
BR: "Uh, ya, pretty much. I'm big into humanitarian stuff and he's like the uber humanitarian and so, he's one of my heroes."
BA: "That's a good person to follow and you'll probably get other people to try and do that as well. You know, it's so easy now with today's generation to go and follow sports atheletes or you know, say, 'who's your hero?' 'O - it's Lebron James', or something like that. Whereas to have a humanitarian, someone with a cause and a reason behind it, is a lot better for the generation. Any advice for people to see, maybe get them to open their eyes to see somebody else out there rather than just what we're given in the social media everyday?"
BR: "Just search these people, you know, check it out. Think outside the box, I guess, beyond everything that we take for granted everyday here and think about the people in other countries, you know, that don't have clean drinking water like we have and that we waste everyday."
BA: " Uh, $2500 is your goal."
BR: "Ya, you bet!"
BA: "How would people donate? How can people donate to your cause? Your cause, you are shaving your head!"
BR: "Ya, you bet! Shaving off my long hair and I'll be giving the hair, itself, to a place that's going to make wigs for cancer patients, but then the funds raised are going to go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. So, um, if people want to donate or get involved, the website's pretty easy. It's just and if they want to find me, personally, they just need to type in 'Brandy' and my page will come up."
BA: "It's that easy and you are a very brave person because you have lovely locks!"
BR: (laughs) "Ya, you bet!"
BA: "And, you're willing to donate your hair, because I can tell ya, there's not a lot of people who would be willing to do that."
BR: "No, I'm trying to convince other people to do it, but I've been unsuccessful, so far." (both laugh)
BA: "Well, just wait 'til they're sleeping and just buzz it right off!"
BR: (laughs) "Ya! Totally!"
BA: "They'll have no idea! Ok, the thing about volunteering for good causes is that it can be contagious; once you get one person volunteering, you can get other people along the way. How can someone follow your path? Do what you're doing?"
BR: "That's actually my biggest hope for this. I mean the money is awesome. The donations are awesome, but what I really really am hoping is that Brandon and Westman will kind of, like, latch on to the dare train, if you want to say, and do their own things. I'm hoping that people will log onto the website, and take a look at some of the dare suggestions, and start a dare page of their own, and raise some money. It's really simple, and you can do pretty much anything."
BA: "What's an example? If somebody doesn't want to shave their head, but they want to do something or some kind of cause, what is one that you would recommend?"
BR: "Well, I'm trying to convince my friends to sky dive, but that's a little bit intense, too. (both laugh) You can do, really, anything; like you can dare to wear your clothes backwards for a week, or, you know, stand up in the middle of the supermarket and start doing the funky chicken or something like that. It's really easy. It can take five minutes or it can be, like, a goal to run a half marathon, or something. Whatever you, personally, feel is something that you want to do."
BA: "The website, again..."
BR: ""
BA: "And you can check out Brandy's site there. Just type in 'Brandy' and you can check out what she's doin. You can also donate and feel free to. Reach that goal of 2500 bucks!"
BR: "I hope so!"
BA: "Good for you and congratulations, Brandy!"
BR: "Awesome! Thanks Brody!"

So, that was it folks! The one that I did on 101 The Farm is a bit shorter, but I don't have that clip yet. Hopefully, I get it soon and can share it too.

One funny thing, I feel the need to point out, however, is that he actually pronounced by last name 'Robinson'. We were already recording and I didn't have the heart to correct him. No biggy, but good for a chuckle none-the-less.

Brody Allan is one of the coolest cats on the radio scene - IMO - rockin' and rollin' in his studio off air, just as much as he does on air. I am totally glad that he was the one who interviewed me.
Check out KX 96 online cuz THEY ROCK!

Henna on my Head

My excitement for today comes in the form of acquiring a fantastic Henna artist who is willing to tattoo the Dare to Remember campaign logo on my bald head! Jennifer Arndt, a friend of a friend is quite happy, to my infinite pleasure, to fulfil my request on the day of the shave.

If you aren't familiar with Henna, let me explain the technique. Henna is a flowering plant used to temporarily dye skin (and other things, of course). For skin dyeing, a paste of ground henna (either prepared from a dried powder or from fresh ground leaves) is placed in contact with the skin from a few hours to overnight. Henna stains can last a few days to a month depending on the quality of the paste, individual skin type, and how long the paste is allowed to stay on the skin.

This is an image of Jennifer's work prior to the paste being removed from a client's foot. As you can see, it goes on as a fairly thick, black paste. I hope to leave the tattoo in this stage on my scalp for as long as I can since the Henna skin diagram I found states that facial skin results in the lightest "stain".

Apparently dabbing a sugar/lemon mixture over the dried paste helps to seal in the color by causing the paste to remain on the skin longer. Every little bit will help! Eventually the dark paste will begin to flake off, at which point, I will scrape it off and be left with a light orange stain. Over the following three days, the stain is supposed to darken to a brownish red color. Another technique to keep the stain dark is steaming and warming it - must do that as well.

Jennifer has never tattooed a scalp before so she really has no idea how long the stain will last. I plan to try my darndest to keep the Dare to Remember logo as dark as possible for as long as possible. This is an image of a client's hand once the dark black Henna paste has been removed. Gorgeous right?!

The hands and feet have the thickest skin and so the stains on them last longest and show up darkest. Never-the-less, I will have a Henna tattoo of the cause for which my newly bald head will stand for all to see (if only long enough to take one awesome photo).

This idea came with the acception of a dare I challenged my friend Shannon to. She is getting a real tattoo, so to compliment hers, I decided to temporarily tattoo my baldness. This DARE just keeps getting better and better!

Added Inspiration

This is my friend, Michelle, but, perhaps, I should clarify: This is my friend, Michelle earlier today. If you can't tell from the photo, allow me to point out that she is sitting in a salon, about to have her hair cut.
This is my friend, Michelle after first getting a salon-style buzz cut and then an, only-slightly-botched, at-home shave. This is my friend, Michelle, and she is Rockin' the Bald Head!

Like me, this is something Michelle has wanted to do for a long time. So, today, July 9th - no guts no glory - and she got it done. If I didn't already have enough inspiration to trade in my lengthy locks for beautiful baldness, Michelle only added to the pile. An envelope full of pony tails of Michelle's untreated, naturally brown, hair is on its way to Evelyn's Wigs in Lorette, MB where it will be turned into a wig for children with cancer. Donations to the Cancer Society can be made here:

Michelle's blog and plight to baldness in her own terms can be found here:

Can't wait to look just like her!

Headline Reads: Volunteer dares to make a difference

Big news this post = I was in the Brandon Sun - Page 3 to be exact! I can tell you one thing for sure - it won't be the last time I'm in there for my head shave. I have a wonderful contact at the Brandon Sun (who is also taking on her own dare because of me - yay!) who is going to work with me throughout the extent of the Dare campaign (double yay!).

I've been contacted by a professor at BU to come and speak to her class about A Dare to Remember and can only hope that she will get on board and assign her class to take on the challenge as well. September shall tell the tale of that venture!

As for my fundraising - it is slower going now, but still going. I am currently half way to my second goal of $2500.

Five Days and $1000

I sadly underestimated the wonderful people that make up my life. To think that I was going to set my initial goal at $500 is truly a laughing matter. On June 22, yesterday, 5 days after launching my Dare fundraising site, I reached my goal. Crazy isn't it?! Crazy awesome! My initial goal was reached with 32 donors: 3 family members, 3 friends, 15 co-workers, 4 professors that I work for, 2 professors that I've taken classes from, 4 super cool acquaintances, and one person that I have never met, but play Farmville with online - gotta love silly facebook games!
Since then (a.k.a yesterday) I've received a few more pledges and am now sitting at a total of $1175. My online total shows $1055, but that is because I have two cheques that I can't log. The new goal is $2500 and I can't wait to reach it.
It's not the shaving my head part that is going to bother me at all. It's hair. It'll grow back. It's the reactions from people that I don't look forward to. The "o my god"s and the "what happened to your hair"s - those are going to drive me nuts. I am hoping the more people I tell about this, the less of that I will have to deal with.
I have yet to convince anyone (except my boyfriend) to shave with me, but I'm working on it. In the meantime I'll continue to think about all of the cute hats I will have a good excuse to wear!

Why I'm Going Bald

Howdy folks ---
On Wednesday, October 20th, 2010 I will be trading in my lengthy locks for beautiful baldness - a.k.a. - SHAVING MY HEAD!
I would imagine the first question that pops into your head is WHY? Well, that's what I am here to tell you. You see, approximately a month ago I received an email from Healy Thompson - the coordinator for A Dare to Remember which is a major campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
Now for some clarification:
The Stephen Lewis Foundation, in short, supports community-based organizations working to turn the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa. Since 2003, they have funded more than 300 projects in 15 countries. These grassroots groups are the lifeline for their communities: they provide counselling and education about HIV prevention, care and treatment; distribute food, medication and other necessities; reach the sick and vulnerable through home-based health care; help orphans and vulnerable children access education and work through their grief; and support grandmothers caring for their orphaned grandchildren. - Absolutely incredible right?! I think so!
A Dare to Remember, once again - in short, asks people around the world to take on powerful acts of solidarity, face their fears, let their creative juices flow, test their endurance and mobilize their communities. They are ‘remembering’ and honouring Africans who take on extraordinary deeds every day to overcome the AIDS pandemic.
Hence, my dare, to SHAVE MY HEAD!
I had the phenomenal opportunity to meet Stephen Lewis (my hero) on May 29th, 2010. That ten minutes in which he shook my hand, signed my copy of "Race of Against Time", and put his arm around me to have our photo taken, was the best ten minutes of my life. I knew I had to do something big and bold for his foundation.

So - I have wanted to shave my head for some time now. In fact, a few years ago, I chopped off ten inches of my hair and donated it to Evelyn's Wigs - a Manitoba business that makes wigs for children with cancer and/or recovering from the disease. I almost shave my head then, but chickened out. Every year since then, I have toyed with getting up the courage to actually sport a buzz cut! 2010 is the year! In only four short months I will have less than a quarter inch of hair on my head. CAN'T WAIT!
I launched my website on June 18th, 2010 (two days ago). My goal - $1000. I actually thought that might be unattainable, but I could not have been more wrong. It is 12:20 pm on June 20th and I am already over half way there! You know what that means right? - My life is blessed with some of the most caring and supportive people. It also means I am likely going to have to increase my goal - what a pity! (please note the sarcasm).

Here is the link to my fundraising page:
Brandy's Bodacious Baldness
Please, pretty please, with cherries and hot fudge and what ever other toppings you crave - DIG DEEP and DONATE a little or a lot!
