BENEFITING: Vogel Alcove
EVENT DATE: Nov 30, 2016
As part of our ongoing effort to help the children of Vogel Alcove, we are launching a no-shave November, or Movember, campaign this year called FLIGHT Against Shaving! The idea is simple: I, and anyone who would like to join me, will look for individuals to pledge various amounts for each day I/we go without shaving (for the 30 days of November). 100% OF ALL MONEY RAISED WILL GO DIRECTLY TO VOGEL ALCOVE and our mission to help the children affected by homelessness in the Dallas area.
To start the month, participants (including myself) will begin by completely shaving off whatever facial hair they do or do not have currently. This will allow those following the campaign to see just how much growth has taken place over course of a month (trimming is allowed, not trying to get people fired). From there, those who are participating, including myself, will post a photo to their preferred social media page (Facebook, Instagram, etc.) each day showing the progress of their epic beards, mustaches, goatees, and everything in between to keep donors and other friends up to date on their progress. The crazier the selfie the better, but please keep it appropriate for everyone who checks the hashtag #FLIGHTagainstShaving or the FLIGHT/Vogel Social Media Pages. Those
who participate will get a free shirt as well as a mustache kit, should you feel the need to them. If you would like to participate in my crusade against razors, then follow the steps below to join me in showing off your Movember faces for a good cause!
For those interested in Donating:
Please reach out to me in same fashion (text, email, direct message, etc.) if you would NOT like to use electronic payment and I will send over a donation form for you to fill out (nothing scary, just a way for me to track everyone who helps!). Anyone who donates at least $1 per day will receive a custom designed campaign T-Shirt as well as their own mustache kit. Corporate sponsors are also welcome, so contact me if you would like more info on how to donate that way!

For those interested in Participating in the campaign:
Please contact me to let me know if you would like to join in. Your responsibilities as a participant are simple; don’t shave and post a daily photo of your progress on Facebook and whatever social media you would like with the hashtag #FLIGHTagainstShaving (and please tag Vogel Alcove in your post to help spread awareness. Doesn’t have to be every time, but anything helps!). I will send you the pledge/donor form for you to get your donors to fill out. You will be responsible for collecting the donations, but if you would like some assistance please let me know. SPEAK WITH YOUR EMPLOYER/SIGNIFICANT OTHER ABOUT MOVEMBER BEFORE COMMITTING TO JOIN. Again, not trying to get anyone fired and/or in trouble. In the pledge/donor form, there is a section where you can specify if you would like to donate to my campaign or the campaign of someone else who is going without shaving.
Everyone, including all you baby faces and members of the opposite sex, is welcome to participate using the mustache kit, just make sure that you do your daily photos and, for those that need/want to, wear your fake mustache as much as you can. I do ask that, if you want to join, you get at least 3 people to pledge (one can be you pledging to your own campaign) mainly to make sure you stay accountable throughout the month. Upon joining, you will receive a t-shirt as well as a mustache kit. Get your family, friends, and coworkers to support you and Vogel Alcove in our mission for the kids!
Thanks for all of your support with this and I look forward to seeing all of y’all spread awareness of #FLIGHTagainstShaving in our mission change the “face” of child homelessness in Dallas!
