Shave It All Off For Road Injured Turtles!

If you love turtles and/or kids read this note!

On June 13 the Ontario Reptile Expo will be held in Mississauga and this time there will be another feature that is somewhat out of the ordinary.

Steve Marks (me) will have his crazy mane shaved off for the sake of turtles and kids! Then to top it all off, I'll have a TURTLE painted on my freshly de-nuded dome! This will all happen in front of hundreds of my peers and friends (so they can have a good laugh)! I assure you there will be video too!

This will all happen IF I raise $2000 for the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre, by 12 NOON June 13. The hair that is chopped off will be sent to Locks For Love (to make hair pieces for kids with cancer)

The HIGHEST BIDDER gets to do the deed! I will arrange for a ride for the highest bidder if they do not wish to drive to Mississauga. This is your chance to really tell me what you think of my stupid lid! It's also a chance for you to help turtles! I have already taken two turtles in this spring and these road injured critters really do get fixed up and released right where they were found - it's awesome!

PLEASE EMAIL ME at cerastes@sympatico.ca AND PLEDGE SOME $$$ Every little bit helps, and for a little more YOU could shave my head!

THANK YOU!
Steve

Maybe you could save a little for Grant to fill in what he's missing??? Awesome Idea Steve. It's a small price to pay to help others!

That's cool Steve - and that is a lot of hair, you are going to make many wigs.

Maybe I should have a competition with you, to see who can make more wigs with their mop.

Turtles and Kids are 2 great causes, I think you have more guts than I do.

Sorry Lisa... the moustache stays!

Come on everyone - if you saw the big old snapper I just took in with his face all smashed in (and he will get completely fixed!) you'd be throwing a hundred bucks in! This is all volunteer work - Vets, keepers, organisers, etc... truly an awesome cause! But they need money - it all goes DIRECTLY to the turtles!

Email me(cerastes@sympatico.ca) for an address to mail a cheque to, or bring a few extra bucks to the Expo June 13.

THANKS!
Steve

I just want to say that what you are doing is absolutely wonderful! I am assuming you'll be taking donations from now until the day of the "event"? If so, count us in. We cannot go to the show ourselves, but I'll expect to see many photos posted here on ssnakess! I'll email you tonight. Again, you truly rock! (kinda like the 80's hair, lol)

Thanks so much for the pledges so far! I couldn't possibly name them all, but I'll mention my pal Mike Rankin, the fastest to respond, Don Patterson, the first from the West coast and Kim Heaphy, the first from the East coast. Thanks to them and everyone in between!!!!! Keep it going people!! $2000 is a long way off!

Oh, and thanks to all the ladies for the nice things you're saying about my hair... how come you couldn't have said such sweet things BEFORE I committed to shaving it off! (sigh)
