Okay, I didn't really wear the kilt canoeing (I didn't want to chance ruining the good kilt; and the 5.11 kilts hadn't arrived yet - although they're shipping this week!). This is a very clever photoshop by one of the adult leaders in the troop who has been one of my biggest cheerleaders in town and has supported my wearing the kilt out and about like mad. I just had to post it.
And now, for the contest update:
Kelly posted the halfway point update on Saturday, and he's coming up fast. With the contest more than half over, I feel like I have to add something else in to get you to donate through me, so here it is:
If I am the top fundraiser in the 2012 Kilted to Kick Cancer fundraiser, I will shave off my mustache.
The mustache has been designated as "epic" by more than a few people, and it was originally Miguel's idea to threaten to shave it off, so here you go Miguel. Here's your chance to get me to shave off the epic 'stache. Put me over the top and it's gone. If, come October 1st, I have raised the most money of all the participants, I will shave off the mustache that's been more than a year in the making. Heck, I'll videoblog it.
So if you want to make me get rid of the ol' soup strainer:
Just drop a few shekels into either of the following links:
Prostate Cancer Foundation
Not only do you get the chance to make me remove the mustache I've spent a lot of time cultivating, but there's also a number of prizes being "raffled" off (see the linked post for details). You could win one of six awesome prizes and be part of a mustache relocation effort (it will be relocated to the bathroom sink).
Who else puts their mustache on the line???
Please be sure to e-mail me and let me know where to put your "tickets" if you do donate through me. There are still a bunch of folks with unclaimed "tickets" - please be sure to e-mail me before the end of the contest so that I know where to put your tickets. And, lastly, of course, I'd like to thank Michael W., Nancy R., Dragon Leatherworks, York Arms, Larry, and Mark for their extremely generous donations.
Donate to me and the mustache gets it!
That is all.
