Authors for Fireys - Holden Sheppard Mohawk Pledge

I am an award-winning Aussie author and Collingwood supporter based in Perth, WA.

In order to raise funds for our heroic fireys over in Victoria, I'm pledging to dye my mohawk the colours of one of my most-hated AFL rival teams, the West Coast Eagles (yellow and blue) - if we hit this fundraising goal

The memory of the 2018 Grand Final loss to the Eagles is still fresh in my mind so this one is gonna sting.

To raise the stakes - and the humiliation - if we reach this goal, I will dye the mohawk just in time for my upcoming appearances at the 2020 Perth Festival (late Feb). 

Help me reach the goal of $2000 to help make this happen - remember it's all going to the fireys so it's an awesome cause. Get around it!
