Today's my birthday. Remember last year when I shaved my beard for charity? We ended up raising $1600 for Homes First. The year before, we got over $1000 together in Kiva microloans.
Clearly we can do awesome things together, so guess what? I grew it out again, and just like last year, I'm going to shave all 365 days of this beard for those in poverty, those with mental health issues, and others who need to rely on subsidized housing and shelters.
But it all depends on how much you contribute: - $500, I'll shave my beard clean off. - $1000, I'll shave everything except for a mustache, which I'll leave for 24hours - $1500, I'll leave that mustache on for a full week - $2000, I'll do a Hulk Hogan style "horseshoe" mustache for 24 hours, and regular stache for the rest of the week - $2500, I'll leave the Hulk Hogan style mustache for a full week (ew)
Based on your generosity from last year, Homes First has officially sponsored this year's campaign! That's how important your money is to this incredible organization helping house those in need. So don't hesitate.
You can definitely spare $20, but $50 would be wonderful. Even more would be truly generous! Save your birthday wishes/gifts and donate to this campaign instead.
Also, take the time to share this link with some genuine words of encouragement for your friends to contribute - that would be a big help, too!
