Karma, spread it around

The Nice Guy LOVES to hear about popular people doing great things for the community. Today is another great day when I can tell everyone about a popular person doing a great thing.

Tad Shackles is a radio host for Power 94. It's a local hip hop and R&B station that I listen to every morning on my way to work. About a month and a half ago, Tad was doing a radio remote for Make a Wish Foundation and while doing that remote, he was asked to do a local "Dancing With The Stars". The look on his face alone told me he was saying in his head "OH HELL NO PLEASE GOD DON'T MAKE ME DO THIS". Not because he didn't want to dance or help, but because I'm pretty sure he has 3 left feet.

Of course, the Sailor in me said "I DARE you to do it!". Man code states that when a friend dares you, you must accept. So, accept he did. Now he has been practicing with his dance partner and will be dancing on July 10th 7pm-9pm at the Cascade Theater. More details here. All proceeds will go to the Shasta Womens Refuge.

SO, here's the deal. Part of the competition is dancing. The other part is raising money for the event. Tad is going up against some pretty heavy hitters. One contender is from a local casino, and is touting that she will bring in $25,000! Well, Tad has been a great addition to our community.

While I am not rich, I am donating $20 to Tad and hope to be able to donate more money to him in his endeavors to raise more money for this cause. If you have a few dollars to spare, and want to help women who are in need of a safe haven, please send a check or money order to:

and really, a dollar, five dollars, ten dollars. It all adds up to support a great cause! Thanks for your help!
