Winchester Ontario – Are you tired of Mayor Eric Duncan’s beard? Well, you can get him to finally shave it off – for charity!
Eric Duncan, Mayor of North Dundas, has been growing his beard for the past 8 months with this idea in mind, and has agreed to shave it off when $2500 is raised for Camp Erin Eastern Ontario, an annual bereavement camp he helped start for children who have lost a parent or sibling.
Camp Erin Eastern Ontario helps children (6 to 17 years old) express grief, build trust and self-esteem, and learn to cope with loss in a safe environment, facilitated by grief professionals and trained volunteers. Mixing traditional camp fun such as swimming, hiking, games, arts and crafts, the weekend will be a chance to also take part in supportive discussions and healing activities.
For more information on Camp Erin, and the amazing impact it has on children in need, watch this video.
Whether it takes a few days, weeks, or months, Eric will only shave it when the goal has been reached. So help clean up his face- and for a good cause!
You will receive a charitable tax receipt from CareFor for your donation. Cash or cheque donations are available too. Just call Eric at (613) 868-1611 or [email protected] to make arrangements.
“Wow! We’ve raised $1700 (online and cash pledges) in just 8 hours, well over half way there! If you have $10, $20 or whatever you can afford, let’s keep the momentum going!” said Mayor Eric Duncan.
