The Paint My Head Green Project
This project is to raise money for The American Cancer Society,
Children’s Oncology Camps of America, CURE, The Brain Tumor
Foundation For Children, Camp Sunshine and Camp CARE as well
as supporting Mickle The Pickle's future fundraising projects.
Paint My Head Green is an inspirational book produced and created by
Mickle The Pickle (Michael Goldstein), based on his poem, “Paint My
Head Green." Artwork is actually painted on the bald heads of
children from R.O.C.K. Camp. This book will also include poetry,
stories, pictures and other surprises. Paint My Head Green is a
touching book that helps bring all families
together, inspiring children to have fun
during these challenging times.
After eight years relating to children with
cancer, Michael has discovered they are the
wisest people in the world! Yes, they have cancer, but they still want to play,
sing, dance and have fun. They are kids first facing their own
mortality…they see life is precious and there is always room for love and
kindness. These children are teachers, leading us on the path to healing.
If you are interested in helping with donations, phone calls, publicity, or any
way that you can imagine, please call Michael at 770-621-7978 or email him
at micklethepickle.com or post a message on his website!
Attention Parents! CURE Needs Your Help!
In an effort to help parents of children recently diagnosed with cancer, CURE would like to gather survival hints
or tips you found helpful during your child’s illness and/or treatment. These hints will be published in our
quarterly newsletter and someday made into a booklet to be handed out to parents. Send in as many tips as you’d
like…the sky is the limit! Tell us what you found most helpful, for example, what to take to the hospital, how to
deal with sibling rivalry/ discipline issues, or how to get your child to take medicine, etc.
Please include the following information:
Age and sex of child • Diagnosis • Hospital where treated
How long has it been since your child was diagnosed?
Thanks for your help. The time you spend sending in survival hints may
ultimately be a lifesaver for another parent!
Mail your suggestions to the CURE office: 1835 Savoy Dr., Suite 317, Atlanta, GA. 30341-1000, email them to:
email@example.com, or fax them to (770) 986-0038.
