i’ll buzz it off for boobs

I’ve been going back and forth on this little scheme of mine for the past few days. I haven’t been really sold on it, and I think the longer I think about, the more I’m gonna consider it a little too carefully. So this is how it’s gonna be.

If I can raise $5000 for The 3 Day Walk this year, I’ll shave my head.

Seriously. My parents weren’t keen on the idea, and my aunt may have peed her pants when I tried to hypothetically ask how quickly hair grows back, but it’s for an incredible cause. And I’m fortunate enough to be able to grow my hair back.

Last year, I raised just over $3000 by holding fundraisers and receiving generous donations from all of you – my friends and family. This year, I want to bump it up a few notches and I’m obviously going to need some help doing it. I figure the least I can do to those who donate to my efforts is to give them the pleasure (?) of knowing I’ll be walking around with no hair for a while.

A few things to note:

  1. I have to raise the money before the walk takes place, which is August 24-26.
  2. I’m not using a straight-edge razor, but I’ll buzz it nice and close. Think Natalie Portman or Demi Moore.
  3. There will undoubtedly be photographs and videos for documentation purposes.
  4. You wanna help shave it? Be my guest.
  5. This isn’t meant to make light of people who lose their hair as a result of any type of cancer treatment.
  6. There are probably more, but this is all I can think of for now!

I’ve raised $900 so far. I’m gonna need some more donations if this hair’s coming off. Here’s where you go to donate.

    Just a clarification – you have $900 so far but raised around $1200 at Hooters? Is it $5,000 in personal contributions? Either way, I claim the right side behind your ear. ahhahahaha Oh, and add $50 to whatever amount you are counting from…

  2. Yep, $5,000 in personal contributions! With fundraisers like Hooters or the cookies or anything like that, we split it between all of the team members that participate!

  3. OMG!!! I do believe I love you.
    I can totally give you all kinds of bald-girl tips, hon. :D

    What an AMAZING fundraiser! Count me in.

    xoxoxo

  4. chele – I may need some tips! I’m just hoping I can make it look half as good as you do! You know, minus all the pink shit. ;)

    Robin – that’s an idea! A completely awesome idea!

  5. While the pink shit IS an important aspect of it all, I’m sure we can work around that. ;)

    Also – I’m totally taking a picture of you wearing my long curly hair. Hehehe!

What's up?
