Kilted Picture, Day Fourteen

I got this picture in an e-mail from one of my friends a couple days after our Hometown Days:


He pointed out the kid at 3 o'clock looking at the weird guy in a skirt - I got a few of those that day, but it was well-worth it. I talked to a whole bunch of people about Kilted to Kick Cancer, about the importance of check-ups - despite how much we might want to avoid them - and generally just raising awareness along with eyebrows.

Again, as a reminder, I'm going kilted as part of the Kilted to Kick Cancer campaign. I'm collecting donations for two groups that will help further cancer research and awareness, and am humbly asking for your donations to either of the following:

Prostate Cancer Foundation

Livestrong

To entice you to donate through me as opposed the other Kilted to Kick Cancer participants, I have a number of prizes assembled that are being "raffled" off - a custom bowie knife, a handmade Jayne hat, a custom Monster Hunter-themed sporran signed by Larry Correia, a custom AR-15 lower, a full set of signed Monster Hunter novels - and the chance to be immortalized in the next one; and a bee-oo-tee-full set of custom 1911 grips. That's a lot of great stuff, and all you have to do is make a tax-deductible donations to one of the linked charities through me to get a chance to win them!

I'd like to thank  Michael W., Nancy R., Dragon Leatherworks, York Arms, Larry, and Mark for their extremely generous donations. I am floored by the generosity and kindness of my friends, and the lengths to which they will go to help in the fight against cancer - and help me out in the process. I'd also like to thank everyone that has donated so far - several folks have donated twice - as well as remind those of you who donated but didn't send me an e-mail to, well, send an e-mail telling me where you want the tickets allocated...

And a reminder - stay tuned for Monday, when I roll out yet another incentive to donate through my efforts!

That is all.
