Hair Dye for Housing

Hair Dye for Housing

UPDATE 3/16/13: Because of an awesome group of donors today who pushed me over the $7,500 mark, Hair Dye for Housing is a go! Donate $10 at for a chance to choose my hair color.

Thanks to generous folks like you, I’m 1/3 3/4 of the way to my fundraising goal of $10,000 for Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership. That’s great, but it’s still a long way to the finish line, folks! So here’s the deal:

On April 9th, the week before we run the Boston Marathon with Team MBHP, we’re having a fundraising dinner at Somerville Community Flatbread. At the end of the night, if I have reached $7,500 in fundraising, we will have a drawing. For every $10 that you donate or raise* for MBHP, you get one entry into the drawing. $10=1 chance; $100=10 chances. You get the idea.

The winner of the drawing gets to choose my hair color for the next month. The lovely Alyson at Liquid Hair Studio has offered to donate her time and supplies, so that I will have truly shocking hair…red? purple? teal? You decide!


  • You do not have to be present on the 9th to win. We will use whatever info you give to MBHP with your donation to call/email you.
  • Fundraising counts! Don’t let poverty be an obstacle to the chance to humiliate me! If you convince a friend to donate, have them mention you in the comments of the donation. You’ll both get credit.
  • One color, no cheetah spots. Alyson has a real job to get back to, and so do I!
