From Jess:

"This summer I will be riding my bicycle with 30-ish other strangers [soon-to-be friends] across the US from Charleston, SC to Santa Cruz, CA 5/23-8/17 with a group called Bike & Build. We will be biking to raise money and awareness for the Affordable Housing need in the US. We will spend 17 days working at housing sites along the way, as well as giving presentations at each city/town we stop in.

So why have a fundraiser? I have to raise $4,500 by 5/23
So why shave your head? It seemed like a fun idea."
