beardsThe Beards for Bleeders fundraiser has begun! We have two Chapter members who are participating in this fundraiser; Lyle Genyk and Eric Keilback. Both men shaved for the last time on August 31st and have committed to grow their beards for 6 months! They are allowed to shave their necks and trim their moustaches but they can’t trim the beard.  You can see their clean-start faces on the website:

Lyle is accepting donations by PayPal, E-Interac, cheque or cash. You can email him directly at and he will walk you through the process. Tax receipts for donations made before the end of 2014, will be send out in early January, 2015.

Eric is accepting cash or cheque donations in person or through the Chapter. As he is under age, we have set up the ability for him to accept on-line donations through the Chapter’s CanadaHelps link located on the Support Us section of the website.  You can make a note that your donation is in support of Eric or go from the General Fund to his Beard for Bleeders fund. Tax receipts for donations made through CanadaHelps will come directly from them. All other donations made before the end of 2014 will be send out in early January, 2015.

Thank you to Lyle for bringing this fundraiser to the Chapter and to both Eric and Lyle for directing their donation to the Manitoba Chapter!
