Help The Geekwave Team support Cancer Research!
The Geekwave team is joining together to help a cause, and have some fun while we're doing it! Solar, Lee, Chris, and Connor will be forgoing shaving for the whole month while asking all of our fans, friends, and families to donate to cancer research. Our goal is to raise $2500 dollars. If every one of our Facebook fans donated $5, we would almost reach that goal.
But wait, there's more! We're offering some great milestone goals if you help us do this. We're still working on getting a few details together, so some of these prizes may change, or we may add more things later on!
$500 - Donors will be entered to win Steam Keys for several great local games.
$1000 - Donors will be entered to win an art commission from one of our staff artists.
$1500 - The Geekwave will volunteer to take video games to play with kids at a local hospital.
$2000 - Special Event (Currently looking at a private screening of Star Wars: Rogue One)
$2500 - We wax our faces. On video. Seriously.
We're open to fan suggestions for other things we could do, and if we hit the $2500 goal early, we'll have to come up with even better prizes for our stretch goals!
If you want to be entered into the donor drawings, make sure that your donation is not anonymous and is publicly displayed.
More on No-Shave November:
Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide (WHO). There's a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable. No-Shave November's mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures.
For over six years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and foregone their hair appointments to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer in our efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle. Each whisker grown allows us to embrace our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment.
