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 . . .

Reading Materials and an Updated Donation/Vote Count

Along with Nicholas Kristof's NY Times columns, Smith College Professor Eric Reeves has been one of the more prolific authors of op-eds and other articles regarding the situation in Darfur. See his website for more. His current analysis of the situation on the ground as well as his archive of newspaper and magazine articles are particularly worth pointing out.

Also, new visitors to the site should first see this FAQ which explains this project in some detail.

Now, on to the current fundraising and voting numbers, where Just Plain Bald has made a strong resurgence and is back on top. I'm doing whatever the people who donate vote for me to do, so if you'd rather see me do something stupid and crazy, it's time for you to donate and vote.

Meanwhile, a number of new organizations have received donations, all humanitarian and human rights organizations which are working on global poverty, development, and social justice issues. Please welcome CARE, the International Rescue Committee and Oxfam America to the list of beneficiaries. Learn more about CARE and what they do here. Learn more about IFC here. And learn more about Oxfam America and what they do here.

And the numbers:

Total Donations: $875

The Beneficiaries
Doctors Without Borders: $565
Save Darfur.org: $125
CARE: $50
International Rescue Committee: $50
Oxfam America: $50
Amnesty International: $25
Human Rights Watch: $10

The Current Vote Total

Just Plain Bald: 265
Krusty: 240
Comb-Over: 190
Samurai: 60
Best Ever (Write-In): 45
Friar Tuck (Write-In): 35
Corn Rows (Write-In): 25
Whatever the Girlfriend Wants (Write-In): 15
Write-In Suggestions with No Votes: Rowhawk (combination of mohawk and cornrows, perhaps using wood glue) and 22 More Months of Growth (pretty self-explanatory name).
