Here’s $10. Get a haircut.

That’s how it started, says Msgr. Sharbel Maroun.

The pastor of St. Maron Maronite Rite Church tells the full story of his Hair for Hope fundraising campaign.

You’ll not only want to read it, you’ll want to hit the DONATE button to help the Minneapolis priest reach his goal of $200,000 to support children suffering from cancer and Lebanese television.  As of July 31 Monsignor says he’s deposited $14,405 in the fund.

The Hair for Hope Haircut Celebration is planned by Sunday, Aug. 14, so you’ve until then to help out. Following the 10:15 a.m. Divine Liturgy at St. Maron (602 University N.E., Minneapolis) on the 14th the parish is having an angel hair pasta (Get it?) dinner. Monsignor will entertain for a bit, then an auction and the hair cutting is scheduled.
