So, It's September...


And you know what that means, right? That's right - it's Kilted To Kick Cancer time!


For the month of September, I and a bunch of my kilted compatriots will be wearing kilts to raise awareness (and funds) for prostate cancer. For the third year in a row, we will be having a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money. The first year, Ambulance Driver beat me out for the #1 slot. Last year I paid him back and took the pole position.

So the way I see it, this is the tie-breaker.

Like last year, I've got a variety of enticements to get you to donate on my behalf. I listed the first three packages (four, really) earlier; but I've had a late breaking addition:

Package 4: York Arms AR-15 Stripped Lower

Per Wally:
Serial number KTKC-2013 should be distinct enough, the selector is a pictogram and the magwell is engraved with the Gonzales flag (star over cannon over "Come and take it".) This is a firearm and does require a FFL transfer to a dealer local to the winner.
This lower is done, and is being sent out for anodization. We'll get a picture as soon as it's available. This is a stripped lower and must be transferred by an FFL - check local laws before bidding!


Should you decide that you would like to try for one of these wonderful packages and donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation through me, you can do so here:




I'm going to try to post a picture every day. Like I have in previous years, I'm wide open to selling my dignity for donations. Have a funny picture request? Want me to do something silly to earn your donation? Put up the greenbacks, baby - I'm your huckleberreh... The donations are tax-deductible, they go to a great cause, and you get to make me do something that my children will cringe when they find it on the internet...

But seriously, folks, thanks - your donations really are greatly appreciated.

That is all.

Thank you so much, Jay! You may remember a few months ago I posted to Facebook about how my father was diagnosed, and is now being treated for, prostate cancer. His prognosis is good because they caught it early. He had no symptoms; he was tested because my grandfather had it, and getting checked out is generally a good idea. I'm proud to support my favorite men on such a worthy cause!

Lupis42,

That's our "Hometown Days" weekend.

Appleseed in a kilt has a definite appeal though...

Suburban Ninja,

It's a worthwhile cause, and I'm glad that our efforts can help in any small way. Best wishes for your dad!

Senator,

I love that plan. Let's pick a time, shall we?

Maybe not for the folks behind you when you're shooting prone. (grin)

Kintera is the software that PCF uses to track donations. I've used it the past two years and no one has mentioned any security problems.

My donation has been signed, sealed and delivered. Hope that gives you a nice boost.

Oh and lest I forget, I hope it helps at least one person kick cancer's arse.

Jay G said...

Thank you, Glenn.
