It's head-shavin' time again
Well, let's give this a try. It's time to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, and I've volunteered to get my head shaved again if folks will pay good money to see it happen.
What is St. Baldrick's Foundation and why should you give them some money?
St. Baldrick's Foundation funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any other organization except the United States government. 74.5% of the money they raise goes to research grants, 21.8% goes to fundraising, and only 3.7% goes to administrative costs. That's pretty good.
The dye is out and my hair has long since returned to it's natural gray, but there's still plenty of it to be chopped off.
After last year's unfortunate realization that I look less like Travis Bickle and more like Bert or one of those pinheads from Freaks when I have a mohawk, I won't let the barber stop this year until I'm bald as a cue ball.
Anyway, if you have even $5 to spare and you'd like to donate to a good cause, please visit my fundraising site here.
