    My wife is very active in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. She is always trying to come up with crazy antics to get people to donate. This year some friends "dared" her, that if they donated $750 she would dye her pink and if they donated $1000 she would get a tatoo. Well in a matter of days she went from $445 to well over $1000. So to keep in going she issued the challege that if she could raise $10000 for cancer research she would not only dye her hair pink, get a tattoo, but she would get a MOHAWK!
    While most would cringe at the thought of the idea of thier wife getting a mohawk, I think it is great. This is a worthy cause and I support her hold heartedly.
    So with all that said, please help my wife get a pink mohawk. You can donate to her by going to the following link: www.sjeffrelay.org/mrs.phillips

    Thank you Brothers for your suppor of a worthy cause.

    Nick, I have a similar situation. I was dared to cut my hair one year. We raised around 1400.00 to do it. Now it's called "Hippie's Annual Haircut" for the Relay For Life. This year, one of the gals at the local newspaper office suggested I dye it Pink, and wear it a while before cutting it. I told them I would do one half Purple for the Relay, and one half Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness. They have asked to take the mustache, but have not raised the money for it. It's been with me since I came out of Basic Training, and my oldest son is 38, and has never seen me without it. They also asked for the eyebrows, but I insisted they go as a pair.... Good Luck, and we'll send a little something to help with a Haircut!!

    Congratulations!!!! I am sure there will be more donations made, as I have not gotten mine there yet. I LOVE doing this stuff, and is one of the reasons I finally entered Masonry. I will look forward to pictures of the event, as well as the Pink Mohawk...

    well they had to call the Relay at about 10p.m. last night due to lighting, my wife got a phone call awhile ago that the total raised under her name was a little over $13,000. She was about to raise over $12,000 in less than 2 wks!:eek: Will post a pic as soon as we get them downloaded.
