A little while back one of our team members Nathan Morrissette shaved his beard that he had grown over the last year or so. Now that in itself really isn't that exciting, but what came from that simple act has turned out to be a fantastic fundraising opportunity for Habitat for Humanity.
When Nathan shaved his beard, he was challenged to grow a handle bar moustache and some of his peers (our brokerage included) offered up $1/day for the length of time he kept it going. Well today it has been 41 days and Nathan's handlebars are doing well and his fundraising hit a new high. Nathan says he has at least another 27 days left to bring the total to almost 70 days.
Habitat for Humanity sent out its' most recent newsletter and Nathan's chops were front and centre with an article chronicling his story. We couldn't be more proud of what Nathan is doing. To check out their blog visit: http://www.habitatniagara.ca/news/growing-a-stache-for-a-good-cause
Over the last 41 days other Realtors and friends have stepped up to donate to this worthy cause and help people achieve the dream of home ownership. Nathan hopes to grow his moustache for another month and raise over $500. Every little bit counts.
