My story

[lt]h1[gt][b]What does Andy look like with short hair?[/b][lt]/h1[gt][p]As some of you know, many of my friends and family have suffered with cancer over the years. What many of you don't know is what I look like with short hair![/p] [p]Many of you have speculated, many of you have wished and many of you have petitioned me for a very long time to cut it off. Sometimes this has been in concern for my appearance, other times it has been out of envy but now I hope that we can all join together in supporting this cause.[/p] [p]I will be cutting my hair on Friday 15th January 2016 and all money raised will be donated to Cancer Research UK. I have chosen this charity as they do a broad range of research and each person close to me who has suffered with cancer has had their own variety and complications. I will also be donating the hair itself to the Little Princess Trust. The Little Princess Trust makes real, human hair, wigs for children who lose their own hair through cancer treatment. This can help someone feel better about themselves during a very difficult and upsetting time as well as giving them the confidence they need to continue living a normal life amongst their friends.[/p]  [lt]br /[gt] [p]Now that we live in a Kickstarter World we have to have goals and rewards, so here they are:[/p] [p]On 27th December 1999 I decided to do a small experiement to see what I would look like with long hair. 5,863 days later, it is time to draw that experiment to a conclusion. My goal is to raise 50p for each one of those days which gives us a target of £2,931.50. I'd like you to help me with this and shall incentivise you with rewards thus:[/p] [p][/p] [ul] [li]If everyone donates at least £20 then we will be on track to reach the target.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/li] [li]Anybody donating £35 or more will receive signed and personalised before & after photos of yours truly.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][/li] [li]The top three donators will have the opportunity to be personally involved in the hair cutting process.[/li][/ul][ul] [/ul][p][/p][p]Thank you so much for your support with this. I really appreciate donations of any size. You all know how much my hair means to me and I hope you will give generously and help me to use this chance to raise money, awareness and wigs for these excellent causes.
