H's Moe Has Got to Go

Mr Hankinson has taught at Merbein P-10 for 38 years.  He is known for his 40 year old moustache.  The moe has impressed over 17, 000 students during his time at Merbein.  But, he's prepared to shave it for a good cause if we raise enough money for the charity of his choice, Giovanna's Gift, in one week.

Giovanna was a student at Merbein P-10 when she was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.  Every year in Australia 1300 women are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and more than 800 women die from this disease.
Sadly, Giovanna was one of the 800.   There is no early detection test (the pap smear does not test for Ovarian Cancer). So every women needs to know the symptoms.

Gionvanna's Gift was established in her memory by her family with all proceeds raised going to Giovanna's Room at Ronald McDonald House in Melbourne so that families can be supported during their child's illness and treatment.

Our goal is simple: raise the money in one week to shave the moe.

We ask that past and present members of the Merbein P-10 community donate whatever they can in order to support this worthy cause. 

Life changes fast.
Life changes in an instant.
But, one thing always remains consistent.
Howard Hankinson and his tash.
