NO-SHAVE NOVEMBER WITH A PURPOSE
Are you ready to brave the beard in support of Veterans & their Families this November? Join MBTA Transit Police Officer Kurt Power, U.S. Army Veteran, Purple Heart recipient and former Home Base patient for the 4th annual “No-Shave November” campaign in support of Home Base’s mission to help Veterans and Families heal from the invisible wounds, such as post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury. Pledge $100 to forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation, raise awareness and break the stigma associated with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and other invisible wounds of war. All police, firefighters, corrections officers, EMTs, and paramedics are encouraged to participate. We also welcome any community supporters or companies to join our efforts, as this is a great way to encourage and motivate employees and make an impact, together.
In 2017, 60 Massachusetts Police Departments and 3 Community Supporters participated, raising over $128,000 in support of Veterans and their Families. This year, we hope to open the campaign to Red Sox Nation and welcome the participation of all New England and Southwest Florida First Responders. This year, we want to raise even more awareness and funds for the critical, life-saving care that Home Base provides to Veterans and their Families – And we need your help to do it!
