One-Fifth Of The Way There: The Donations Hit $1,000!
After $125 of new donations, we've now hit the $1,000 mark. That's one-fifth of the way towards the new goal. Thanks to all who've participated so far. This fundraiser has gone far better than I could've ever imagined.
What is all this, you ask? Check out this FAQ posting to learn more about why I'm cutting my hair and who the money is being raised for.
Now, on to the updated donations and vote totals. After once again being surpassed by voters for the Just Plain Bald Look, the Krusty the Clown cut has make another bold resurgence and is back in the lead. A new write-in vote has made an appearence, as well: the Vanilla Ice. Yes, that would be adopting the same haircut (and eyebrow cut?) as that great rapper, Mr. Ice. (Also, word on the street has it that a few voters are lurking in the shadows, planning to make large contributions near the end of this project on Tuesday night and poised to take charge of the voting totals single-handedly. So vote now to ensure that our lurking voters have to donate more to carry the day.)
