Help A Blogger('s Friend) Out...

MSgt B. has a friend in need...

This is Sam
Sam is the only son of Hutch.

Hutch and I went to High School together at Massanutten Military Academy in Woodstock, Virginia. Way back in...aw, hell...a long damn time ago.

Hutch and I both served in the First Gulf War. You remember that one, way back when that evil old Saddam invaded poor little Kuwait, and we ran in there and saved the day.

Sam is undergoing some serious medical-type stuff for brain cancer. That's heavy. Sam's dad, Hutch, is raising money for cancer research (sound familiar) and has made an offer that's strikingly familiar to me:
"As you can see I don't have much on the top of my head to shave, so I have decided to shave that which is most important to me, my Magnum, the mustache that has been with me from the start. Literally, I was born with it. I have shaved it twice in my life, both times for elementary school pictures. I will shave it if I can get 500 bucks worth of donations, I know, its not alot, but I'm not that popular. The cause is a good one please help the smart people find a cure for this terrible thing called cancer."

Yep. Another 'stache on the block for cancer research. BTDT, Hutch, it's for a good cause (and it grows back). Now, here's the thing. He's going to shave off his mustache if he raises $500. He's already raised $835. Let's see if we can't double - or triple - that amount.

You can donate to Hutch (who is also a Jay) here: Jay Hutchinson

That reminds me - it's time to dust the ol' kilt off...

That is all.

Thanks to FarmDad for bringing this to my attention...

Done and done.

Done. Maybe he will have to shave it, regrow it and shave it again several times.

Ted N said...

Done.

Stray thought, I wondered if his parents would be okay with a copy of the MHI anthology being donated?

Because I'd totally donate money for that too.

Already shaved for St Baldricks once. Let's triple, no quadruple and then some his goal.

Seriously, you get to help kids with cancer. Who says no to that?

This means a lot to me.
