Dennis Cuts His Dreads For SLF
The Old Orchard Blossoms grandmothers group hosted a noteworthy event for a very worthy cause last month. As a part of the Stephen Lewis Foundation's Grandmothers To Grandmothers Campaign, the husband of one of the member, Dennis Maplazi, had his 91 dreadlocks cut off as a "Dare For SLF". The event took place at JC Barber Shop, and while Dennis showed some apprehension as the actual cutting approached, he remained committed to the cause, and looked quite nicely trimmed at the end of it. Dennis' effort raised over $3000 for the SLF. Since forming in 2006, Old Orchard Blossoms has raised $83,000 for the grandmothers campaign, and the 240 grandmother groups across Canada have collectively raised $16.5 million in that same timeframe. Let's applaud this tremendous contribution to a very worthy cause. Well done, Dennis!
