Look, I'm not one for silly gimmicks. But I do enjoy raising some money for a noble cause. By now, you probably know that we are trying to raise $5,000 for NVRQT, Jon Lester's charity benefiting pediatric cancer research, in John Arguello's name. It was a cause John was passionate about (and one that is very easy to get behind).
As it stands today, our fundraiser is just past the 50% goal mark with only 4 days to go. Let's make it 100% shall we? I'll even raise the stakes.
If you can help us get past the $5k goal by this Sunday night, I'll shave my head. I don't have super long locks or anything. But I'm no doubt going to look weird. I'll post a video and everything.
Not impressed? Fine. We'll also do a drawing for a 2018 Cubs poster featuring the stars of this year's team... along with Yu Darvish (sorry, couldn't resist). Every $10 will get you one entry.
That enough? Let's do this.
