Would you give me, Charles Shaughnessy, money to take my clothes off?

Would you give me, Charles Shaughnessy,
money for taking off my clothes?

What... ?

No, I mean would you make a donation to my fundraising page?


Why? Because I'm running through the streets this February in
Cupid's Undie Run to raise funds for the Children's Tumor Foundation (
That's right, a mile run in the freezing cold, in nothing but my underwear.

No I didn't lose a bet, I just wanted to do something bold and help out this
amazing charity.  Last year we raised over $1.3 Million for this very much
needed research and I need your help this year to do more.

100% of donations go to CTF and will help families battling a horrific disorder
called neurofibromatosis (NF). It causes tumors to grow on the nervous system
which can lead to deafness, blindness, debilitating pain, learning disabilities,
cancer and even more. It sucks, a lot and we need to do something about it.

Since there are no current treatments, I'm doing whatever it takes, clearly,
to do my part to find a cure. We can #endNF!

$5 ... $500!   All gifts are important and will go a long way to helping those
in need. Oh and they are tax-deductible as well.
All joking aside, on behalf of those I'm running for, 
we are truly grateful for your contribution.

Here's A Thought . . . Jack Maxwell and Susan Shaughnessy

Our special guest will be Charlie's friend, the very charming, Jack Maxwell.  Jack is the Host of the extremely entertaining, funny and successful show on The Travel Channel, The Booze Traveler!  We are thrilled to have Jack on the show to talk to us all about his new TV show. He just finished his first season of the show and has been picked up for a second season!

Jack travels the globe to not only get a taste of a country’s alcohol, but to quench his curiosity about what people drink, why they drink it and the stories they tell when they do. At each stop, he connects with locals, immerses himself in regional activities, learns about the country’s unique relationship with liquor and sometimes even participates in the alcohol-making process. If you haven't seen the show, you must check it out the website for #BoozeTraveler or watch some of the episodes online or on The Travel Channel. Check your …

Charles Shaughnessy's thoughts on Cory Monteith's death

Charles Shaughnessy on Twitter  @C_Shaughnessy
"RIP Cory.  Until we treat alcoholism and other mental health problems as compassionately as we treat cancer, there will be other Corys."


What are your thoughts?
By Associated Press, Published: July 16 |
VANCOUVER, British Columbia — “Glee” actor Cory Monteith, who had struggled for years with substance abuse and once said he was lucky to be alive, died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol, the British Columbia coroner’s office said Tuesday.“There is no evidence to suggest Mr. Monteith’s death was anything other than a most tragic accident,” the office said in a statement. He was 31 years old.
