July 16th – July 30th
Climate Marchers will shave their heads in exchange for donations! We will track our donations over a 2 week period, and when we reach the milestones below (starting at $500), the Marcher pictured will shave his or her hair!
*Grant money and money donated to the Coalition Building Fund will not be counted.
$500 – Ed Fallon – BALD!
The last time I was bald was the day I was born. I’ve been eager to reclaim that innocence and hair-fashion statement ever since. Shave the Planet may be my big chance.
$1,000 – Jane Kendall – BALD!
Less time shampooing and styling my lovely locks means more time helping our lovely planet.
$1,500 – Izzie Mogelgaard – BALD!
Not much to take off, but this will only be the second time I’ve shaved my head.
$2,500 – Mary DeCamp – BALD!
I’ve never been happy with my hair style and after seeing my Occupy Tucson mugshots, I realized I need to switch to a no-muss, no-fuss cut that looks the same at 3 a.m. as it does at 3 p.m. Bald is an overlooked option in my life that might suit me well.
$3,000 – Lee Stewart – BALD!
I can live without hair, but I can’t live without a healthy climate.
$5,000 – Zach Hough Solomon – BALD!
Off with my mangy mane!
$10,000 – John Abbe – BALD!
$15,000 Mack & Ben*
(*Will shave bodies, not heads)
$20,000 – Birdie the dog
$30,000 – Berenice Tompkins*
$40,000 – Kathe Thompson
Why let the men have all the fun? I’ve always wanted to see a bald 72-year-old woman! Why not me?
$50,000 – John Jorgensen
Never shaved my head in my life! But the life of this march is worth it.
$85,000 Jimmy Betts*
(*everything, body and head) I am 30.49 years old. My hair has been growing, undisturbed in its natural environment, for the past 2.52 years. Though often top-knotted in a dreaded mass of March residue, the development of a lush mane that can be cleaned and let down when the occasion arises has become a signature detail of who I am since finally becoming an adult earlier this year. I’d sooner be without spectacles, showers, and food before shaving my head, face, and body. I am willing to do anything for the healthy success of the Climate March — Hair today… Strong (and Shorn) Tomorrow!
I feel like Sampson, all my power is in my hair. All of my identity and femininity is encapsulated in it. For $100,000, you can make me powerless.
$150,000 – Faith Meckley
I haven’t had a haircut since 7th grade, and it’s my favorite physical feature about myself. I see my hair as a part of my identity, but if you are willing to show your dedication to keeping the March going and help us get to a whopping $150,000, then I am willing to part with it. If my hair is cut, it will be donated to Locks of Love.
