I can't see how this could possibly go wrong.

As soon as I got this shirt from I said, jokingly, "I should wear this somewhere in Egypt". Of course, I say a LOT of things, most of which I quickly forget, which is for the best I suppose.

But this idea seemed to stick around, prompted by people practically daring me to be so crass while in a foreign country. Although we will be pretending to be Canadians on this trip ('Hey, this is my wife, she's from Manitoba and I'm from Winnipeg, eh'), there is no denying that we are Americans. It is our birthright to be slightly 'ugly'. And as such, a little poking is in order. I'm willing to risk becoming a social outcast, and maybe a dank Egyptian prison but I want something from you in return. So here's the deal:

I will wear this shirt in public, preferably near a recognizable monument. For each photo I post on the site YOU will make a donation of at least $5 to a charity of your choice. 2 photo's = $10. 5 photo's=$25. It would be great if you would consider helping the Theban Mapping Project, but any charity is okay. Go check out their amazing website. They are doing some great work.

This is all on the honor system, don't send anything to me. Of course, if I AM arrested, that donation can be used to help pay my bail, or hire the A-Team to break me out. Whichever, I'm not picky.

Peace me unto you!

I'm not daring you.
Personally I think its silly.
And maybe even a little stupid.

I'm not daring you, either. Besides, I already donated a bunch of money this year to The Humane Society, Defenders of Wildlife and Katrina victims. Now I have to stop donating and start saving up for India.

You're smarter than that, Steve.

I always gave you credit for being brave, but NOT stupid.

Leave the T-shirt at home...I don't want to see YOU blindfolded on some terrorist's videotape.
