I'm changing my name to Shambolic Ninja-Penguin for charity

Postby Shammy on Wed Oct 03, 2012 2:15 pm

Yes, you read it correctly: I'm changing my name for charity. In real life. If my target is met, I'll change my name to "Shambolic Intergalactic Scrumdiddlyumptious Effervescent Penumbrous Whimsical Super-Hydrogenous Crime-Fighting Piacular Nugatory Contumelious Capacious Vapid Ninja-Penguin".

I like to do crazy things, especially when it's for charity. I've been thinking of doing this for a while, but when I found out that my biology teacher from secondary school (who was an absolute legend) was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and that he's spending his time raising money for Cancer Research UK, I was inspired to actually go ahead and do it.

My target is £200, and if I raise that then I'll sign the deed poll and change all the necessary records including my driver's license, passport, university records and more (and yes, I'll take pictures). I'll keep the name for at least three months, and for every additional £150 I raise on top of the target I'll keep the name for an extra three months up to a maximum of one year. All donations go to Cancer Research UK.

This is all being done properly, and I would use the name Shambolic Ninja-Penguin (or "Sham" for short) for my daily business. All the actual costs of paying for the deed poll will be met by me, so 100% of the donations will go to charity. Please donate everything you can!

And yes, I'll take suggestions for additional middle names.

You're a legend, if I had some to spare, I'd throw you some cash.
Good luck raising the funds and all the best to your biology teacher.

I've just realised that once all my ID cards have the new name, it's going to be an uphill struggle buying alcohol or getting into clubs/bars. Oh God.

The most non-selfish act a human being could ever do. Change their given name for a chance to do good in this world. Sir, you deserve a metal. I'll donate to your cause not only because you're going on a limb here yourself but it's made me happy beyond belief knowing people like you still exist in this fucked up blue world.

Contact your local TV news station and newspapers about this and help to gain publicity, it'll help gain more money along with the problem of identification.
Your better include the middle name - Biggus Dicukus.

This is not a huge goal for such a big change. Think about it, changing your name will probably cost you that much money or somewhere like 100$-150$... So why not simply donate that cash to the charity if you really just want to help?

Why's that so? He'll pay for the namechange into something funny/weird, just to get people donating for charity. That's generous and awesome!
