Along with another dozen or so of my fellow brothers and sisters at the Unalaska Department of Public Safety, I am going to get my head shaved at the event to raise money for this very worthy charity. To make it interesting, I'm going to give away a box of crab - for every $10 donated "on my head", you get one chance to win your choice of a 20 pound box of opilio crab delivered to your doorstep anywhere in the United States, or a 20 pound box of red king crab picked up at my office here on the island. Donate $20 and you get two chances, and so on. If through the generosity of my friends, neighbors and blog readers I end up as the top individual fund raiser at the event, I'll throw in a cool island sweatshirt in the winner's size. We will have the drawing for the crab live at the event where there will also be live music and food!
To make a donation on my head and get entered in a chance to win a box of crab, go here. To see a list of all the shavees, shavers and volunteers at the event go here. And if you just want to find out more about this very worthy charity and see how you can host an event in your own neighborhood, then go here. You can also donate by phone at (888) 899-BALD. To have your donation count towards my head, my participant ID# is 373350. You can also download a form from the website and mail it in with a check. And for last minute donors, you can see me at the event and I can log your donation and give you a receipt for tax purposes.
Okay, not the guilt part . . . . this is important to me. I lost my Mom to cancer, and several friends as well. My hairdresser's son is a wonderfully talented young man who is a cancer survivor. One of my dear friends on the island has a grand daughter Emery that is still undergoing cancer treatments and is in all our prayers. If you have ever read my blog in the last three years and been touched in any way by my words or photos, this is a chance to say thanks. I am going to be pushing this hard until the event, and then I promise I won't bug you all until next year's shaving!
Cheers and thanks - email me with any questions or concerns and I promise I'll post lots of pictures from the event for those that can't be there!
