So, looks like I don't have to be cute...

I've got just under 2k raised (counting TW funds which haven't hit yet)

My family has donated a fair amount.

Y'all aren't going to get to see me cute... unless...

So once again, the challenge, and I've made it a leeetle more fun.

If you guys can get my fund-raising total up to 5,000 before Tax Day, I'll WALK the Avon Walk, for at least one of the days dressed cute. I mean pink, frilly, bows sorta cute... you provide it I'll probably wear it... but only if you can get my total up... That's 3k in a month. Can you do it?

The link is here
And, in the tradition of stupid shit for charity, I will indeed do stupid shit for charity.

Most of you know that my tag line is "Not cute. Fierce!" Well, I've decided that you guys can make me reverse it for an evening. Should my fund-raising total for Avon hit 5,000 dollars by April 1, I'll be cute for an event, yes that means I'll do it in at least semi-public, pink, ruffles, pigtails and all. Yes, the event is still to be decided.

No, I haven't decided on pictures, but if I allow them I'm likely to say if you donate fifty bucks or more, and want one you'll get a picture of me looking cute. So, here is your challenge, anyone who has never bought my not cute shtick. Get me to five thousand and I'll admit to being cute (at least for an event).

Seriously however, it is a damn good cause. The link is here . That will take you to my personal donation page. If you would rather donate by check, let me know and I will send you a form.

Feel free to link. This is one of my real public posts.

EDIT: Team Wench PF funds cannot be the majority. That means, if TW PF donates $2501, the total will be 5001 etc. I'm willing to let TW fund count for a significant percentage but not more than half. I don't expect this to be an issue, but it is possible.

Also, as far as what I wear, I'm willing to leave that up to you guys. If it's going to happen, I'll ask for suggestions and then do a polling among the folks who donated fifty dollars or more. Yes, I'm retaining veto power.

Also, I've not yet decided if I'm willing to let this be photographed, as I said above. We shall see how adventurous I feel.

So, I'm not [ profile] webqatch over there --------> with the 10,000 dollar goal. I'm me, with my somewhat lesser goal of $3,000. I've done better than I hoped, TW's money helped immmeasurably. I still want to make my goal.

But that's really not the point. The point is, there are thousands of people, not just women, who are fighting this disease. Some are fighting and winning, others aren't. That's why I'm walking. That's why you're donating. If you've got five bucks to spare on fighting a disease that's killing many, instead of tossing at your morning latte, please donate. If all you can do is wish me well, please do, come out and cheer. If you've got a spare $100 burning a hole in your pocket from your tax return, toss it to Breast Cancer Research. I'll be walking at the end of this month, that's what I can do. What can you?

If you can donate go Here please.

I took the plunge. I registered today. I'm not sure how in hell I'm going to raise that much, but I'm counting on you guys to help me.

So, the upshot is, April 29-30 I'll be doing my best to walk a marathon and a half to support breast cancer research. I'll be walking with some great people, both inside and outside of Team Wench (

What this means to you... I will be shilling for donations on a fairly regular basis. Also, I fall into the willing to do stupid stuff for charity catagory. If there's something you've always wanted me to do... well if the price is right I'll even be cute. Pigtails, make-up and all.

So, here is my donation page
