After 22 months, it's finally time to let the hair go. And you decide what happens to this blank canvas. Comb-over? Samurai topknot? Krusty the Clown? Bad Hair for a Good Cause. You encourage me to do stupid things by donating money to humanitarian organizations. Let the voting begin . . .

Sunday, April 16, 2006

After a few more votes trickling in today, all of you have now donated in excess of $1,200. I'm quite impressed. Meanwhile, there are still a number of you who've promised to make donations to the various charities below and haven't yet, so I imagine the number should be going a fair amount higher.

The goal of $5,000 may be a bit higher than is reasonably possible, but I still think that we might be able to reach it — I guess it's up to all of you and whoever information about this site gets forwarded to.

48 hours left. (Your votes must be in to thehairproject@gmail.com, along with a confirmation receipt of your donation, by 8 pm on Tuesday, April 18. For more information, see here.)

Before we get to the most recent tabulation of where we are with donations and votes, one ;ast thing: a few of you have asked about how long I plan to keep the new hairstyle. As it stands right now, I'll be rocking whatever foolish hairstyle all of you vote for from Tuesday night until Saturday night. Depending on what wins, of course, the hairstyle may change over the course of the week. (This post explains the progression of two of the possible haircuts.)

Plea to "Just Plain Bald" voters: Vote for something, anything else! Since he will only have his new cut through Saturday, after that he'll most likely shave the rest off and be bald anyway. So if you vote for something else, you'll get TWO of your choices: your new one, plus Just Plain Bald later. Do it, do it.
