I’m assuming that if you’re reading this, you’re well aware that I’m a huge hockey and, specifically, Pittsburgh Penguin fan.
I’m also pretty sure you know that I can grow a pretty mean beard.
Anyway, starting in early April, I’m combining two of my favorite interests – the NHL Playoffs and growing beards – to raise money for a great cause that’s near and dear to my heart: Operation Smile.
I spent a lot of time during my childhood being shuffled back and forth to Pittsburgh for surgeries and checkups on the cleft lip and palate I was born with. So I figured I’d start using my resources – i.e. all you generous people that I know – to raise some money to help a couple of kids out that were born with the same conditions that I was.
My goal is $500. According to the Operation Smile website, that’ll be enough for two kids to have surgeries that’ll help them go from this:
So if you don’t want me to shamelessly promote my cause (*COUGH*SPAMYOUTODEATH*COUGH*) then start donating! (haha)
Just click here for my page and donate away.
It’ll put a smile on my face and, way more importantly, a smile on the faces of a couple of kids who need them.
