With a fun visual interactive idea in mind, we wanted to celebrate the fall here at Column Five headquarters by participating in No-Shave November and growing our facial hair for a worthy cause. Hurricane Sandy hit the eastern seaboard just as we ditched the razors. Soon, we learned that one of our own, Kirk, and his recent bride lost their home in the storm’s destruction. Forced to evacuate their NYC apartment as the hurricane rolled in, they returned to the city to find most of their belongings destroyed and their apartment uninhabitable. We knew we’d found our cause.
Throughout the month of November, the men of C5 are dedicating their beard-growing efforts in a symbol of solidarity for our talented designer and one of the biggest fans of facial hair as we know. Let’s keep the fundraiser growing. This holiday season, your donation of any amount will sponsor the growth of our beards through the end of the month in our efforts to help this new family get a fresh start. We’ll match all donations made, dollar-for-dollar. We’ll be tracking our progress on a daily basis, so be sure to check back to see the fundraiser’s growth, as well as that of our stubble.
