Digitaria Guy Will Sport Awkward Facial Hair for Charity

Anton Zuponcic, a software engineer at the newly rebranded Minneapolis office of Digitaria, has decided to go from hirsute to who-knows-what in an effort to support Bridging, an organization that helps families and individuals transition out of poverty by providing furniture and household goods.

For the the next week, the Digitaria crew will be hosting a microsite called “Bridging Barber,” where visitors can vote on seven different godawful facial hairstyles for Zuponcic and then donate in the process. Each vote does cost a buck, but hey, at least you’re helping out a good cause. After the votes are tallied, one lucky barber will get to shave the style that gets the most onto Mr. Z’s face (he promises to sport said style for two weeks). At present time, it appears that “Frisky Whiskers” is the top vote-getter. Anyhow, 100 percent of proceeds go to Bridging, so if you’re feeling sadistic and altruistic at the same time, why not give it a go.
