The lockdown beard must come off.

Main image

Yes, it is essentially bum fluff growing on my face. Yes, that is Macaulay Culkin's younger brother.

Yes, it must come off. But why just shave it off when I can charge you jokers for it (although for a good cause)?

Proceeds go to Farm Strong. Mental and physical health is important in the primary sector, where isolation can lead to a decline in both these areas... And that's without the impacts of covid-19. Don't be afraid to reach out, now more than ever.

If this target gets hit, I've agreed to have my makeup done by the flatmates and videoed for your entertainment. Beard comes off upon the countries return to Level 2.

Note: Due to the current situation, families and individuals may be under a degree of financial stress. Please make sure your own needs and responsibilities are met before donating.

Tom Wilson's involvement (page creator)

Staying mentally and physically fit is important in the primary industries where individuals are often isolated, despite the current situation. Now more than ever we must stay connected, albeit via different mediums.

Shave & Make Up  10 May 2020

Posted by: Tom Wilson

Thankyou very much for all of the generous donations! You smashed the original target through the roof. As promised, here is a video of my makeup being done.

During this time, most of us have had to adapt to a new way of staying connected. Perhaps more than ever, mental and physical health within the Primary sector is of upmost importance. Don't be afraid to pick up the phone. Some great services out there (including the beneficiary of this fundraiser; FarmStrong). Stay Strong, kia kaha.
