It’s one thing to shave your head for a cause, but it’s quite another when you have to grow something…especially a beard. Nevertheless, Braam needs your help to raise over $5,000 to cover for the flights, visa and for the camp registration(s).
Braam writes on his Indigogo page that,
Attending WFDYS camp was one of the biggest eye-openers for me. At the WFDYS camps, I was given opportunity to meet so many youths from all kinds of countries all over the world and I got to learn about their countries’ history, culture, sign languages and especially a lot to do with the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Braam is asking the community as a whole to help him develop new youth leaders coming from the younger generation to take a lead in understanding how to develop better policies for the future, in exchange for doing so, Braam is willing to grow a bead and he pledge not to shave until the first day of Congress.
The purpose of this fundraiser is really simple: I would like to see new youth leaders coming from the younger generation!
TSG hope you do look hot with your new, upcoming beard! 🙂
