Help the children of St. Jude.
Message from: Keifer Thompson
Thompson Square fans all around the world the time has come to unite, rally together and help me raise money for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!!
I am participating in the 2nd Annual "No Shave November" competition to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The miracles that take place there daily, the passion of the doctors and scientists, and the LOVE amongst everyone is incredibly overwhelming! There is no other place on the planet as special as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
But they need our help! 75% of the operating costs of St. Jude are funded by people just like you and I, one donation at a time! Your donor dollars help fuel the groundbreaking research that leads to pioneering care and treatments for childhood care and other deadly diseases! A child who is a patient at St. Jude never pays a dime for treatment that is not covered by insurance, and no child is EVER denied treatment because of a families inability to pay. Your donations also help St. Jude cover the other costs a family typically incurs while their child is being treated at the hospital, including travel, housing and food!
You can help St. Jude continue its life-saving work against pediatric diseases with your donation. PLEASE CLICK "DONATE NOW" button at top right of the page!
HERE'S THE BACKSTORY ON NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!
In its second year, No Shave November to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is growing! It all began as a light-hearted wager among co-workers at Warner Music Nashville who stashed away their razors for the month of November in a friendly competition. The following year, the stakes grew higher when Warner Music Nashville challenged Music Row and Country Radio to join the "No Shave November" competition and raise money for kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This year radio stations across the country will form teams competing against each other and the music industry community in Nashville to raise even more money for the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The cost to enter the challenge is $30. On Nov. 1, participants will start with a clean shave and post a photo of themselves with that day's newspaper on their registration page to officially enter the competition. Radio Stations across the country will form teams On Nov. 30, participants can gather for "Beard Bashes" in Nashville and around the country, where prizes will be awarded to the finalists and "No Shave November Champions" will be crowned by panels of special judges.
"No Shave November" Rules and Regulations:
All participants will completely shave their face on Nov. 1 and post a photo with that day's newspaper (or other documentation of the date) on their registrations page.
Participants cannot shave for the entire month of November (Clean-up shaving will be allowed around the neck and the upper part of the cheeks).
For a $30 donation to St. Jude, a third party can pay for a participant to shave before the end of the month, or trump that request to shave. Participants also can pay $30 to shave before the end of the competition. On Nov. 30, participants are asked to take a picture showing off their final facial hair with that day's newspaper (or other documentation of the date).
Beard Bashes will be held in Nashville as well various locations across the country on Nov 30th to commemorate the end of the competition.
All proceeds benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
