Earlier this winter, Powder Magazine Editor Derek Taylor lost a bet on a football game and had to get a perm...and it's incredible.

Powder Magazine's Derek Taylor...before, and after the perm.

But instead of staying indoors and/or wearing a hat 24/7, DT has decided to turn his personal embarrassment into an opportunity to help the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation and the CR Johnson Healing Center. So for every week that $1,000 or more is raised for the Foundation, Derek has agreed to keep his ridiculous haircut, and we'd like to take the time to call on all Newschoolers members to do their part, both to help an amazing cause, and to keep DT looking fresh.
