Who wants to shave my beard?

After years of dedicated growing, maintenance and many different products I’ve decided I’m putting my beard on the line.  On Saturday February 22nd I’ll be walking with hundreds of others in the Coldest Night of the Year to raise money for The Dam Youth Drop In Centre, and I’m willing to let you take control of my beard in order to reach our team fundraising goal of $5,000.

When we do hit our team goal, the person or group of people who raise the most money for our team will have the option of shaving my beard completely off or getting creative and designing a pattern, giving a new shape and even dying it!  Although I’m a little worried about how cold my face may get if there’s no built in scarf, I believe whole heartedly (or beardedly) in the programs that the Dam offers and am asking you to help support these programs by donating to my fundraising page.

ABOUT THE DAM

Being a kid can be difficult.   With changing hormones, a developing brain and peer pressure on social media, it can be hard enough for the average kid.  Now imagine not having a safe space to just be yourself.

The Dam is the leader in providing safe space for youth to just be themselves.  Staff and volunteers make this place a space that youth can truly feel safe and turn to someone they can trust.  I started volunteering at the Dam in March 2014 and have enjoyed every moment and every experience.

Volunteer nights, where youth spend three hours cleaning the Cooksville location, preparing a meal, enjoying the meal together and playing games (all for high school volunteer hours) was the highlight of my week.  It was humbling to learn so much from youth, by just walking around with them and listening.

Watching the faces of the youth during the annual Christmas parties, as they opened beautifully wrapped presents and showed genuine gratitude was the highlight of the holidays for me.

As a board member, I am now very much aware of the need for strong community support.  They say that it takes a village to raise a child.  The Dam is that village, and supporters like you make this village possible.

Thanks very much for your time and support!
