Samson of Wash. County Commission cuts coiffure to help homeless, aid ailing angels
“Washtenaw County Commissioner Yousef Rabhi, D-Ann Arbor, will be launching his campaign Monday to collect donations for area organizations that help the homeless in exchange for shearing off his hair, according to a Friday announcement from the county.
Rabhi, 24, announced at a Nov. 7 meeting of the Board of Commissioners his intent to cut his 28-inch-long mane of hair as a fundraising effort. Rabhi hasn’t had a haircut since 2005.
…Rabhi plans to cut his hair in 2013 and donate it to Children With Hair Loss, a non-profit agency based in Michigan that provides free hairpieces to disadvantaged children. …”
Samson got shorn by Delilah, but YR is doing it to himself. (And using the Hair Formerly Known As Yousef’s to cover some innocent young heads.) Now that’s courage!
