Editor's Note: This is a great example of a creative, unique fundraiser for CMMRF. Take a look at it, donate and help our Assistant General Grand Recorder make a decision. Keep or Cut the Braids.

Donate Now!

Should they Stay or should they Go? These braids have been growing for the past few years, and they are currently 15 in. in length. I have decided to raise money to benefit Cryptic Masons Medical Research Foundation INC., and need your help. You can vote to keep the braids or cut them off. The decision is in Your Hands! Please make a note with your donation stating to Keep or Cut! Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

If the final decision is to CUT - the person that donates the most will have the opportunity to cut one, or both braids off!!
