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 . . .

Three Days Left in the "cHAIRity" Project

Who would've ever thought that over just six days, people would be convinced to make more than $1,000 in donations to worthwhile charities in order to see me give myself a stupid haircut? The response has truly been overwhelming. Apparently the combination of doing good, while making me do something foolish, is just too hard to pass up for many of you folks out there. And I thank you for it.

(Once again, for the newcomers: here's a brief summary of the project. And here's the starting point; this is what happens when I let my hair grow for 22 straight months.)

While the original impetus was to use my first haircut in 22 months as a catalyst to raise money for organizations working to end the genocide in Darfur, we've now expanded the scope of the project a bit to encompass a number of other humanitarian aid organizations. (If there's an organization that you'd like to support that hasn't received a donation yet, feel free to donate and forward your receipt to thehairproject@gmail.com and vote for a hairstyle that way.)

A few new donations have come in today — one supporting a new organization, the United Nations World Food Programme. We've also received a new write-in vote. A second new write-in vote came in, as well, but it requires the use of too much product so it'll have to be changed.

Today's donations put the Just Plain Bald look back into first place. It looks like my friends may care a bit more for me to preserve some semblance of dignity and self-respect than I'm willing to preserve on my own.

The new write-in is for The Octopus, which would be a sort of reverse Friar Tuck, keeping a sort-of skullcap of short hair, with eight long "tentacles" reaching down from the circle of short hair on the top of my head.

With three days left, here's where we stand. A number of you have promised donations, yet haven't donated yet, so things may change quite a bit before all is said and done — but for the time being the Just Plain Bald leads.
