Members of the Birmingham Law School have been affected by cancer. Some of us as friends of those who have had cancer, some have had family members, some have counseled students who have either had or known someone who has had cancer. As a result, we've decided to do what we could to help.
We first decided to use our strengths but there was unfortunately no one to actually sue. So, we turned to other strength - making ourselves look ridiculous. We are also banking on the idea that our students will support anything which makes us look silly.
As a result, staff at the Birmingham Law School will dye our hair for the month of November (and yes, for me that includes the beard). But we need your help. Each member of staff has decided on three possible colours (or colour schemes) but we want to leave it up to you to decide which one we eventually go with. So, for every £2 you donate, you get one vote. That means if you donate £10, you get five votes.
The three colours I have chosen are:
3. Red, White and Blue
Voting is really simple. When you donate money using the website, you can leave a comment. Simply use your comment to vote by letting me know which colour you want me to dye my hair. All of the votes will be tabulated and we'll have an official Hair-Dyeing event in the Birmingham Law School on 1 November, 2010.
