Founded and championed by MBTA Transit Police/Boston Gang Unit Detective Kurt Power, U.S. Army Veteran, Purple Heart recipient and proud graduate of Home Base, the 9th 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.
While called “No Shave,” there are alternate ways for you and/or your department or organization to get involved, without growing facial hair. We will send a 2023 Home Base patch, hair scrunchie or lapel pin to anyone who participates, to show your support throughout the month of November.
To date, this campaign has raised over $1.4 MILLION to fund critical mental health and brain injury care – all at no cost for our nation’s wounded & injured Service Members and their Families. Equally important is the message each of you relay to your communities by participating in this impactful campaign. First – that their service and sacrifice mattered, and second – we need to connect them to care! The outpouring of community support – individuals, companies and employees – for this campaign was remarkable.
