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.
