My name is Matt Hollenbeck, and I am a long time reader of the stool. Over the years, I’ve seen the generosity of the stoolies, and I’m looking for their help once again.
I’m a member of the Georgetown University Baseball team, and this year we are trying to do something special both on/off the field, and could use your help.
Following our April 5th home game against Xavier, we will be shaving our heads in solidarity with the children across the world dealing with the worst hand possible, childhood cancer. We are looking to raise funds for St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which is a foundation that has raised $34 million alone in 2013. At Georgetown, we realize how lucky we are to not only attend a great university, but to play a sport we all love. Its about time that we gave back to those who have been dealt the worst situation imaginable.

I love these Georgetown guys. I’ve sent a few emails back and forth, and they are nothing short of genuine. They absolutely realize how lucky they are, and have already raised a great deal of money to fight childhood cancer. And not only are they raising money, they are shaving their heads. Great school, great guys, great cause.
If this blog helps raise even 1 dollar, I think we did good here. If it raises $1,000, that’d be great. We all joke around on Barstool (sometimes by accident) but if there’s one thing everyone agrees on, it’s that cancer is the fucking worst.
PS: If the comment section could save their o so funny comments for somewhere else, that’d be great.
