Past $1000

March 7th, 2007

Sponsorship for my entry in the World’s Greatest Shave has passed the target of $1000, so you’ll be seeing a picture of me sans beard. I’m as much in the dark as anyone regarding how it will look.

There’s still ten days to go, so I’ve decided to get really ambitious and set a target of $5000, with more incentives/gimmicks along the way. I’m lining up a really good one for $2000, and I hope to make an announcement tomorrow. Remember all proceeds go to the Leukemia Foundation, and all donations are tax deductible, so keep the money coming in!

    No! Leave the bearded pic as it is. It’s like a flag, familiar and assuring. How about a reverse auction? Once you crack $2000 (or is it now $5,000?) Why not dutch auction for the “leave the bearded homepage” lobby to take it even higher?

    Good Luck, and good cause.

    Mattingly, I told you to get rid of those sideburns!

    I want to sponsor you, but I have only a debit card. Are there any other options?

    I did it in ’04 but raised only $400. Well done so far and best of luck.
