Doug Keller's Fundraiser:

Doug & Heather's Clean Shave Challenge

THE STORY:

Nearly five years ago, we met in a classroom in Marrero, LA. We taught 43 amazing 1st-graders, who made a book with artists from around the country. It was pretty magical.

We've spent almost five years of our lives working with incredible people to build on the magic of that book through the creation of spaces, choices, and time for New Orleans youth to develop their voices. Now, thanks to 826 National, we have a profound opportunity to make a permanent, unique, inspiring youth writing center possible. If we are able to raise $3000 by December 2, Doug will shave his beard for the first time since Big Class began in our classroom in 2010. We will post videos of the shave, and photos of Doug's clean-shaven self.

A few other incentives:

-The biggest individual donor will be treated (with a guest) to a special dinner at We've Got Soul, one of our favorite restaurants in New Orleans.

-The second biggest individual donor will receive a special painting from Heather. -The third biggest individual donor will get a Big Class "I am a writer." t-shirt from the very first Big Class project.

-The weirdest donation will get a weird original drawing by Heather.

-Every donor will get love. Lots of it.

I'm partial to the beard, particularly the current unkempt version. It will be sad to see it go. Maybe when it's shaved, you can glue it onto heather's face. 3 years ago
