Bald My Boss!

My editor at Television Without Pity is going to shave her head, with your help.

Sars is running a contest/fundraiser over at her site, Tomato Nation. It's for Donors Choose, a great charitable organization that helps schools get funds they need for specific goals and projects -- and you choose which ones to support. Hence the name.

Sars is shooting for $25,000 in total donations as her goal, and you'd better hurry, because she's more than halfway there as of this writing. Not that overshooting would be a bad thing, because if her readers raise $30,000, her hair comes off. All of it.

I know you can do it. I know you want to do it. Think about all those kids getting access to the things they need that they're not otherwise going to be able to afford. And then think about Sars walking around New York with a top that's shinier than the Chrysler Building. It's win-win, people.

Every little bit helps. And every donation, no matter the size, gets entered into a random drawing for a whole raft of kick-ass prizes. One of those prizes is an hour of live career counseling with my brilliant wife Trash, whom you may remember from jobhunting week on the Vine's Ask the Expert series. And maybe a story or two here.

Once again: here's the official contest page on TN, and the Donors Choose list of projects being targeted. Go nuts.

UPDATE: Done and done. The video's accessible from here. See how humorless those sourpusses G.I. Jane, Ellen Ripley and Evey Hammond really are by comparison.

Donors Choose is an awesome org.

And I can't wait to see Sars shinin' ... wait, we DO get to SEE the evidence, right?!

There MUST be photographic evidence of Sars' pate shining in the sun. Prefereably whilst surrounded by some of the kiddies that benefitted from the D.C. efforts. Good project!

Apparently there will be video. Hee!

Thanks for the heads-up, M. Giant. I gave my $20 bucks. It's not enough by itself, but with everyone giving, we are sure to see that bald shine!

Ha! "Heads up." Awesome.

Will Sars be able to give The Portman a run for her money in the "bald, yet still hot" sweeps? Tune in and see!
