I have a goatee.
Since 2000, my face has never been without my goatee. My entire relationship with and subsequent marriage to Tiffany. The entirety of Technolutionary’s history. The entirety of We Love DC’s history.
And I’m going to shave it off for Movember.
That’s right, in just two short weeks, my face is going to be naked.
I won’t lie, I’m pretty freaked out, but I said I’d do it, because the cause is just, and prostate cancer is an insidious and awful thing that no one should ever have to worry about.
We know a lot of people, Internet friends, who have been put through the wringer by Cancer. It’s a pretty shitty collection of afflictions. Lately, I know that there are several people suffering from cancers esophageal, breast, NET, and lung, not to mention those who live in fear of their recurrence.
So, November 1st, I’m going to clipper off my goatee and shave my face for the first time since May of 2000, because feeling a little silly is a small price to pay if we can help find a cure for prostate cancer.
Help me out?
I’d really like to raise $5,000 in the next six weeks, and I think that’s definitely something that can be done through the strength of this community, and my ability to be publicly humiliated for the benefit of others. So here’s what I’m offering you, my Tumblr friends.
For $10, you can send me a photo of yourself pointing at a camera and snickering, and I will put it on my Tumblr.
For $20, you can add a caption, or make fun of my double chin.
For $40, you can tell me I’ve got a lot more than two chins.
And for $100, I will post a subsequent photo of me crying while staring at your photo.
Okay, so maybe these aren’t the best buy-in goals, but, I’m working on it here, people. I want to give you something for your hard-earned dollars than you’re sending off to help cure cancer.
Let’s do this.
