Happy Groundhogs Day!

I’m going bald! Again!

On March 17th, I’m shaving my head for St. Baldrick’s. But not just any head, I’m shaving “the FRO.” Last year’s shaving of the ‘fro raised $6,500 for St. Baldrick’s. In Cleveland we raised over $220,000 and worldwide the organization surpassed $12.8 million.

You may recall the mission of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, “Shaving the way to conquer kid’s cancer”. I’m helping raise awareness and funds to cure kid’s cancer by supporting cancer research and fellowships.

I’m raising awareness and asking for donations with many of the same antics as last year: bumper stickers, buttons, colorful brochures, and zany videos.

This year’s theme is based on the 2008 presidential election. I’ll be churning out slogans, propaganda, and letters—like this one—asking for a campaign donation. Last year a lot of friends contributed $10 so that I would cut my hair for St Bs. Here is where I stand with a $10 haircut against the other hopefuls:

$400 John Edwards
$50 Mitt Romney
$20 Ron Paul
$20 John McCain
$15 Mike Huckabee

$10 FRO
$4 Dennis Kucinich

Perhaps you could help me move up the list! Can I count on your support for this year’s campaign too?

Go Bald! Vote Fro!
