Men: are you tired of having to shave everyday? Have you ever wanted to grow out a beard and your hair, but haven’t had a legitimate reason or the motivation and encouragement to do deal with the discomfort of itch, heat, and perhaps stares and disgust of others, especially during the summer months?*

Women: have you grown tired of having to regularly shave your legs and armpits? Are you sick of the pain of plucking, pruning, ripping, tearing, and shaving? Do you wish you could just let it all grow, but haven’t had a legitimate reason or the motivation and encouragement to deal with the discomfort of itch, heat, and perhaps stares and disgust of others, especially during the summer months?*

Well, now you do! Grow out your hair (and experience a small taste of the discomfort the boys who live on the streets have to go through) to raise funds for the Freedom Boys Ministry to build:

  • university student rental rooms for ministry financial sustainability ($15,000)
  • staff housing at their drop-in centre ($20,000)

JOIN and SET UP A TEAM (or grow solo)

  • REGISTER (each participant must register separately)
  • DARE your family, friends, church, small group, colleagues, schoolmates to join – make it a fun competition
  • GROW out your hair starting 1 to 6 months before SHAVE DAY, May 31 or August 31
    (the average hair growth rate is 5in or 125mm per year)
    • men grow your head and facial hair
    • women grow your armpit and leg hair
  • RAISE AWARENESS, telling people why you aren’t cutting your hair/shaving and DARE them to do the same
  • RAISE FUNDS asking people to sponsor you per day or per millimeter (note: 25mm=1in)
  • DOCUMENT and SHARE on the Hair Dare Facebook Page your hair growth with selfies and measurements
  • SHAVE it all off on SHAVE DAY, May 31 or August 31

*If you already have long hair and a full beard (men), or long leg and armpit hair (women) you can keep growing it until SHAVE DAY, May 31 or August 31
