Yeah i know sorry, no serious threads allowed, but forgive me just this once.

Every year I participate in something called "St. Baldrick's Day" which is the week before St. Patricks day and across the nation in Irish bars, police station, and firehouses people get sponsored to shave their heads for childrens cancer research.

Well its that time of year again, and i'm looking for some help. Every year i've been able to make my fundraising goal of 500 dollars and i don't want to be "that guy" this year and not make my goal. So i appeal to all you Caddy Addicts to help out the kids and donate what you can, every dollar counts.

I have done a lot of research into this organization and they have EXTREMELY low overhead, more than 87% of every dollar donated makes it directly to research. Compared to 35% at the Red Cross thats pretty damned good.

Of course all donations are tax deductible, and it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You can donate online, mail me a check made out to St. Baldricks Day with my name in the memo or just watch me make a drunken fool out of myself again. If you're in the DC area i encourage you to stop by and volunteer to shave my noggin, only an extra 25$ donation and you can BIC my melon.
