When Adam’s good friends lost their baby Evie, he wanted to do something that would make a difference. So he decided to fundraise for stillbirth research. He decided to have a ‘beard shave off’ of his gloriously long beard and get people to donate. With enough donations he also volunteered to dye his beard and wear the colour for a week.
Once the community of Bunyip heard about his efforts, the town got together to hold a community day for families with the great ‘shave off’ as the highlight of the day. Local businesses helped to sponsor the family day and over $8,000 was raised by Adam and his family for Stillbirth Foundation in Evie’s name.
This is an incredible example of an event that raised awareness of stillbirth and also raised valued funds for future research.
