You may or may not have heard of St. Baldrick's before. It's a fundraiser done each year to raise money for children's cancer research, and I've decided to go for it this year.
Long story short, well-meaning folks with hair-to-spare (such as myself) solicit donations for the charity (from awesome folks like you), and in exchange, I'll show up to an official St. Baldrick's event to get my head shaved.
So... yeah. I'm signed up for the March 13th event here on Long Island. If anyone wanted to chip in for the cause, here's my page:
Also, I've personally decided that for every $500 I raise, I'm keeping my head shaved for an extra two weeks. I suspect that this reason alone may cause my sister, or others, to go crazy with their credit card.
Edit: In case anyone's hesitant, the St. Baldrick's charity is on the up and up. They've been doing these events for going-on 11 years. Here's some info about their spending:
