There's no doubt politics can be hairy. I had a bet with my political counterpart, Sean Spicer, Communications Director for the Republican National Committee. (I serve that role for the Democratic National Committee.) We each agreed to let the other shave our head on national television if our candidate lost the Presidential election. After the election, I was excited that I'd be shaving Sean's head instead of him shaving mine. But, when we learned about St. Baldrick's, we decided that we should BOTH shave, making our bet pay off for kids fighting cancer. Tune in to watch us get shaved on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, November 25th.
Now we're not just honoring a bet. We're having our heads shaved to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer, but more importantly, to raise money to find cures.Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Thank you!Click "Make a donation" to give online, or donate by phone or mail.
