Keep up with all the BeCause fundraising events taking place this month and throughout the year.
Founded and championed by MBTA Transit Police/YVSF Detective Kurt Power, U.S. Army Veteran, Purple Heart recipient and proud graduate of Home Base, the 5th Annual Home Base No Shave campaign raises awareness and funds for the critical, life-saving care that Home Base provides to Veterans and their Families to heal from the invisible wounds, such as post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.
Pledge $100 to forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation, raise awareness and break the stigma associated with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and other invisible wounds of war. All police, firefighters, corrections officers, EMTs, dispatchers and paramedics are encouraged to participate. We also welcome any community supporters, individuals or companies to join our efforts, as this is a great way to encourage and motivate employees, friends and family to make an impact, together.
Last November 2018, 118 New England Police Departments, several individuals, companies and sponsors joined our efforts and raised over $276,000! This year, we want to raise even more awareness about the invisible wounds and care Home Base provides, as well as raising more funds – and we need your help to do it! Join us by participating, fundraising, sponsoring or donating.
