Okay. So.

If you donated to my St. Baldrick's event...there's a 90% chance I am not shaving my head this year. Nothing came up, it's not that I don't want to--I do--but I had an offer I don't think I can refuse.

Basically, if after 4 pm on the 27th I can prove I still have my hair, one of my weird little friends says they will donate $3500 to St. Baldrick's.

The dilemma I am faced with is getting a donation bigger than what I can actually raise versus pissing off the people who donated thinking I would end up bald and living with it until my hair grows back.

The only thing I think I can fairly do is offer a refund to those who donated to see me shave. So if you donated and I can dig your info from the St. Baldrick's website, expect an email from me. You'll still get to keep the receipt for your tax deduction for donating to this charity, but will get your money back.

'Tis only fair.

I hope no one actually asks for their money back. It's the cause that matters, not whether or not you have hair.

Heavens, no--keep my little donation! I didn't donate it to see your pink-spotted bald head. :) Yay for the BIG donation!

I would rationalize the bidding as saying you should keep your hair due to the highest bid. And if you can get them into a bidding war, so much the better. And even if the bald-bidder won, I would lie about it and take the hair-bidder donation.

On the other hand, if the bald-bidder goes for enough money, there ARE wigs...

Ditto for me. I didn't send the donation to see you go bald, I sent it to help the kids.
