I regret this already…but it’s for a good cause. It’s for Covenant House Vancouver. And don’t be one of those losers who says you don’t live in Vancouver so why should you care about street kids in Vancouver. Because the fact is, a large percentage of youth who are homeless in Vancouver come from all parts of Canada and even the United States. A few years ago, one of our kids actually ended up on Oprah, as part of her make your dreams come true thing. She received a scholarship and a new school wardrobe after putting her life back together thanks to Covenant House. THAT’s what we do for our youth.

Will you help our youth too?

I don’t need your money but I need your vote! As part of the Canadian Idol audition process, I’m competing in Media Idol and the grand prize is $1,000 for the charity of my choice.

No… I can’t sing. In fact I suck. I suck large donkey ass. But I’m willing to look like a large, donkey ass to help street kids rehabilitate their lives.

So I’m asking you, I’m begging you, to vote for me by clicking here and then clicking on my name. A box will appear with a series of letters for verification. Simply enter the letters and hit “ENTER” to register your vote.

And if you really want to torture yourself, you are welcome to watch my clip. Me singing Eternal Flame with Dylan McNiven on back up sign language. We were f&cking around in the press room at the Juno Gala and after too many Nanaimo bars, all of a sudden I was singing to camera.

For the record, they have a list of, like, 10 songs that have been cleared through legal. It’s not like I had a large selection.

And I know. It doesn’t get any squeakier. But with your assistance, I’ll get to the finale where I’ll be singing live on stage and vying for that $1,000 prize. On top of that, am announcing today that if I win, I will MATCH $1,000 of my own for a total of $2,000 to Covenant House Vancouver.

In other words, by voting for me, you’ll be assisting with my public humiliation AND you’ll be encouraging me to write a cheque for charity instead of spending that money on another pair of shoes.

So what are you waiting for?

Click here to vote and thank you for your support!
