It is getting near that time. The beloved Jorge Gutierrez and Harper Kamp are nearing their final games at Haas Pavilion. As you might remember, last year, I made a cut-out head of the MSF mean face, which eventually made its way to him, so I'm glad he had that token of appreciation. Last year was more of a last minute affair, however, and the quality of the image wasn't very clear unless viewed from a distance, and it was in black and white. This year, JABear and I want to do this right.
We believe we might be able to get a discount, but two huge cut-out faces in color will still add up to a few hundred dollars. We were wondering if anybody would be willing to donate a few dollars towards this cause to help alleviate the cost on these poor college students. We were thinking about setting up a PayPal...any better ideas? Thanks for your time, and GO BEARS!
*UPDATE* Okay, so I guess we'll be doing this through PayPal. If you wish to donate, please send money to the PayPal of firstname.lastname@example.org. Since we aren't sure yet as to the exact costs of the big heads (rough estimate is about $300, could easily be more or less), what we'll do is this: if we somehow raise more money than what we need to purchase the heads (and we'll of course put a significant amount of money towards the heads ourselves), we'll donate any extra money to Cal Athletics. (Does that sound fair?). Thanks!
*UPDATE #2* We're STOPPING donations! We've raised a very good amount of money! Thank you all for the generosity-you guys are THE BEST! We are placing the order about an hour from when this update was posted, so the cut-out heads should be ready for Thursday night! Thanks again and GO BEARS!
