I have a full Mr. T makeover in my near future. At work, we launched a week of dares to benefit five local charities.
I’m one of the suckers that agreed and will be transformed into Mr. T (mohawk and all) at the studio on Wednesday, August 16th. My goal is to raise $500 for Sibling Connections. It’s a really great organization I have volunteered with since 2005 that provides year-round programs for siblings placed in separate foster homes. This is the program that brought my daughter Jelissa into my life.
I always hate asking for donations, but at least this time I have something to offer in return — looking completely ridiculous for many weeks. So if you can give $1 or $10 or whatever, every little bit counts, and it all goes to some very very deserving kids.

Also, we went on the local NBC affiliate this morning to talk about the dares. You can see the video here.
I promise to have pictures and videos to share once the deed is done.
Update: Here’s the video of my transformation:
