|The World's Greatest Shave to Care and Cure

It's amazing how a fast talking Welshman can convince you into shaving your head.
What started off as bagging me about how long my hair was, has turned into me participating in a fundraising event for the Leukaemia Foudation.
It all started on Monday, when I dropped a proof into Matt's office for him to send to a client. From then we started talking about our weekends and general banter. Then the topic of my hair came up...
Long story short, he entered me in the world's greatest shave.
So, under the provision that he would raise at least $100 for the charity I would shave my hair. Not all the way of course, only down to a #2. This may not sound like much to most of you, but a #2 is massive for me.
At first I was quietly confident that Matt couldn't raise the money, until he started asking other people in the office today. within 5 minutes he had $50 raised, and this was at a time when only 4 people were in the office.
So, now there's no use fighting this anymore, because at this rate $100 will be raised by 9:15 tomorrow morning. So now a call goes out to all of you who accidently stumble across this post on your friends page: sponsor me to shave my head. The money goes to a good cause. The Leukaemia Foundation.
Some of you may know someone who is suffering from Leukaemia, or who is in remission, I know I do, so please give generously, at the very least you'll be able to laugh at me walking round looking like an idiot for a few months and know that you were part of making it happen.
You can donate by visiting here. Just search for my name when it comes to the shaver number. Or you can just give me the money, and i'll write you a tax deductable reciept if you don't have a credit card or don't want to give out your personal details. You can find out more information from here.
The hair will be going between the 4th and 6th of May, so expect me to go into hiding sometime shortly after.
I also want to organise a big blood donation with lots of people some time, so if people could let me know if they are interested, that'd be grand.
