Cutting Robert’s Hair! – A fundraising event to shave my head!
My hair was on the line in my recent April 25, 2009 competition. The deal was, if Giacomo Marchese beat me on stage in the same weight class, he could shave my head. That didn’t happen, though I thought he should have beat me that day, just two weeks after we went head to head in Portland, OR in another contest I placed ahead of him. I thought I should have won clearly in Portland but in AZ, I really thought he was going to place ahead of me. The hair never came off and in fact I had the camera rolling after I showered and used a blow dryer to dry my long blonde hair to tactfully celebrate my placement ahead of him, keeping my hair he joked was coming off that day.
I still have the hair but since I really thought Giacomo should have placed ahead of me, I thought it would be a nice gesture to cut my hair off anyway. Then I decided that I don’t just want to cut it off, I want to hang onto it, do photo shoots, etc. But if it were to be cut off, I decided that I will donate it to cancer patients and I have a lot of hair to donate!
So now there are some reasons to cut my hair and some proposals have been put forth.
It has been proposed that we use my hair as a fundraiser for our Documentary, Vegan Brothers in Iron, which we’re still working hard to fund, while donating my hair to those who don’t have hair and would appreciate my pretty blond hair that has been the signature of my He-Man lifestyle as of late.
The idea proposed is that based on the feedback from http://www.veganbodybuilding.com
members provided throughout the forum. Many people said they would be willing to pay for Robert’s hair to be cut! Many offered to donate money, pay for me to cut my hair, transport me to get my hair cut, etc. Well, now is your chance to pay for my hair to be cut while supporting our documentary, supporting cancer patients, all the while being able to see me go from Robio (like Fabio) to Baldio.
Since it is a fundraiser, we thought we’d cut off 1 inch per $50 donated. All the money will go towards funding Vegan Brothers in Iron, which should be one of the best vegan documentaries of the year when it comes out. My roommate Jessi measured my hair and most of my hair ranges in length from 13-18 inches so we decided 16 inches is the Official Length to be cut for me to have my head shaved! I’ll wait until the end of donations received over a month period before I cut it so I know how much is being cut and donated to those in need of hair, rather than cutting it off inch by inch and wasting these beautiful blond locks.
