Help NRCC political director Mike Shields scare children by contributing to cancer research. Shields has already raised $7K for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which funds child cancer research; if he gets to $15K, he’ll shave his head and donate photos to Hotline.
From Mike’s fundraising page:
I’ve answered the call to be a hero! I’m having my head 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!

According to fellow NRCC employee Michael Kaplan, Shields is already at $11,000. “If we can get Mike to $14,000, I’ll personally see to it that he reaches is goal of $15,000. He’ll look much better bald,” said Kaplan.
