I’ll be running (walking, limping) in the American Lung Association’s 5k run this coming May 1st. This is one of those “get people to donate money” things, and last year I had the amazing incentive of annoyance plus the ability to have people sign my helmet for the Ride.
This year, options considered for fundraising included shaving my head. However, that was vetoed by Man and Boy, and so instead I found something far more temporary: a tattoo.
Specifically many tattoos (hopefully), of the 30-day Henna variety. The week before the race I’m engaging a henna artist to tattoo slogans, pictures, names, etc. — whatever is wanted, as long as it is PG — on my limbs and upper back for the race. At the $25 level, of course.
And you, too, can be a part of it. You can even *watch* as I plan to tweet the proceedings 🙂
But, you need to donate money. Here’s where you do that: http://action.lungusa.org/site/TR/RunWalk/ALAMP_Mountain_Pacific?px=4415558&pg=personal&fr_id=2590
I may even come up with fancier incentives for fancier money 🙂

Yo Mr. Kzinti sir, you need to tell me what tattoo I should get!
I know I’ve given the obligatory $50 for a tattoo, but let’s make this really fun. How much to put a big picture over your shoulder? I’d like to see something along the lines of my gravatar image at http://en.gravatar.com/kzinti used.
Can you get it rendered as line art?
I shall fetch my graphic designer/youngest daughter and set her to the task immediately. =)
[…] my brain trying to figure out how to get you to donate. Thus far I’ve given you the option of semi-permanently marking my body with a henna tattoo (to be done April 28 on the Expedia Bellevue campus, by a professional), and that did bring quite a […]
I have $50 for a tattoo, the Harley shield with “Live to Ride” on it.
