A friend of mine is trying to get the word out to as many people as possible, so I told him I would post an announcement on my site:
As many of you may know, a very close family member of mine was recently stricken with breast cancer. In the interest of making a difference, I, Colin VanOsch, along with Martin VanOsch, Ryan Dumont and Jason Dumont, hereby pledge that we will shave ourselves from head to toe, publicly, at a social fundraiser being held over July long weekend. We are currently accepting pledges, but we are still quite short of our goal, five thousand dollars each. The proceeds of this fundraiser will go towards the improvement of the Chemotherapy Ward at Bethesda Hospital in steinbach, Manitoba, in honor of our mother, sister and aunt.
We will be providing tax receipts on request for all donations of 10 dollars or more.
There is no such thing as a 'small' donation. I trust that those who can afford to donate and consider this a worthy cause will do so, and no bad feelings to anyone who chooses not to. If you need any more information, or would like to donate, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on MSN, AIM (Morphine Colin), Private Message...pretty much anything.
Guarenteed will be a full gallery of before, during, and after pictures.
If anyone would like to use PayPal, Colin's PayPal address is email@example.com. I believe this event is scheduled to take place in a couple of weeks, so any and all help is greatly appreciated. Feel free to e-mail him with any questions you might have.
