Back in 2002 when I donated my hair I left enough on my head for a cute, short, sort of spikey cut. That's what I was originally planning to do this time around except that I can't seem to come up with a hair style that I really like. So basically I've just been putting it off and my hair has grown longer and longer. I have a long enough ponytail to meet the minimum 10 inches for donation to LOL and still have hair left over for a short bob. That's boring, I've done the bob thing already.
For The 3 Day walk, besides walking 60 miles I have to raise a minimum of $2300. Right now I am at $1202. That means I have to raise at least $1098 more before the walk (August 7-9), or pay the rest myself. The worry about making the $$ is putting quite the damper on my summer.
So here's the solution that I came up with. I'm writing this blog post and I am going to ask everyone to pass it around, email it, tweet it, reblog it, whatever. If that helps me raise the $2300 before the walk, I'll cut my hair super short and go with the boring option I've been avoiding... HOWEVER (here's the good part) if you all rally with me and help me raise more than the $2300 before the 4th of July, not only will I cut my ponytail off for Locks Of Love, I will also SHAVE my head! So I will be (nearly) bald and 2 charities will get the most out of me! But that doesn't give you all very much time to help me raise at least $1100... so get cracking and I'll get bald(ish).
(The 'fine print'- for me to shave my head my donation page- http://www.The3Day.org/goto/EABwalks60 must show that I have raised more than $2300 by 11:59pm central time on July 3rd. No telling me you mailed a check the day before. And no, $2301.99 is not reasonably more. I'm talking like... at least $2350 or $2400... It can be done. Especially if you take up a collection at work and see if your company does donation matching. And that picture of me is 4 months old, my hair is even longer now!! So get cracking and make me 'bald' FOR 2 GREAT CHARITIES!! Sorry, I don't mean shiny head, shaved with a straight razor to the scalp bald... more like cropped super short...)
UPDATE 1: 11:05pm Wednesday June 17th... I am now up to $1844.61 so I am only $455.39 away from having to lose my hair by the 4th of July!!
UPDATE 2: It's Saturday June 20th and I'm at $1914.61, just $385.39 away from shaving my head by the 4th... otherwise I'm just cutting it short (the bob or something). Locks of Love is getting a ponytail either way! Here is a picture of me/my hair today:
UPDATE 3: It's Wednesday June 24th and I'm at $2164.61, a mere $135.39 from having to shave ('shave'?) my head by July 4th. At least one of my friends has submitted their donation in for company matching, so I know for sure I will be over $2300 by the walk, I just don't know if I'll be that far over by the 4th of July- so if you *reeeaaaally* want to see me (nearly) shave my head, donate now. I've actually been looking at cute, super-short haircuts ala Selma Blair, Ruby Rose, Sara Quin & Laura Harris (cropped close in back, a little longer on top, sort of a pixie cut) to start getting ready to be rid of a majority of my hair... I like when Selma had the crazy cut that was shaved almost to the scalp on the sides and in the back and then funky on top...

I will be heading out to NY that weekend to meet up with some of my fellow interns for Pride (and a 'pillow fort and beer' intern pre-party, obvs!) and then for our awesome AutoStraddle party (and then I will be flying home the Very. Next. Morning. in time for class! w00t.) Won't you join us?!
