The #HomeHaircutChallenge: A Closer Look at the Virtual Fundraiser to Support Blue Star Families

Published: May 1, 2020

By now, we’re sure you’ve heard the news about our #HomeHaircutChallenge, right?

But, maybe you’re asking why? Why did we create such a thing? 

And the answer is pretty simple. 

The fight against COVID-19 has impacted our MilFams in a big way. So, we wanted to raise awareness and support via the #HomeHaircutChallenge, while bringing the nation together VIRTUALLY to brighten spirits as we wade through unchartered territory, together. 

Most importantly, the proceeds from this virtual fundraiser allow us to continue to create the programs and expertise needed to empower military families during this time. 

Have you taken on the challenge? If you need a little nudge, you’ve come to the right place.

See how the #HomeHaircutChallenge went for some Blue Star Families supporters:

We think each of them #NailedIt!
