Charity headshave for the homeless

From the Register-Pajaronian, an article about another successful charity headshave. This one fits in nicely with the article I posted yesterday.

I'm not sure exactly why charity headshaves are so popular. I suppose it's because even though the bald-by-choice thing is more popular than ever, it's still the kind of thing that most people are still a little nervous about doing. Doing it for charity makes it easier, though, and people seem to be willing to pony up some dough to see how others will look when shaved.
Coast Commercial Bank president Rick Hofstetter was skeptical when his staff came up with the idea of shaving his head to raise money for the Family Shelter, but he went along and shaved his head on Nov. 16 - and the Homeless Services Center's new Family Shelter is $35,112 richer as a result.
