Granite’s annual “Saving by Shaving” fundraiser began nine years ago when CEO Rob Hale jokingly dared a member of his team to shave his ZZ Top-style beard in exchange for a $1,000 donation to a cancer hospital. Over the next two weeks, hundreds more Granite teammates reached out to Hale asking for the same opportunity to raise funds and shave their heads or beards in solidarity with those undergoing chemotherapy. From there, 428 teammates turned out at Granite’s first “Saving by Shaving” event and raised more than $2.2 million to benefit cancer research.
Over the past ten years, more than 10,000 people have participated in “Saving by Shaving” events by shaving their heads and donating their hair, raising more than $50 million for charitable organizations. Granite is proud to partner with Boston Children's Hospital again for Saving by Shaving 10.
All locks of hair are donated to Hair We Share, which creates custom wigs free of charge for those affected by medical hair loss. Plus, a donation of $100 is made for every “chemo cap” (a hat for cancer patients who’ve lost hair due to chemotherapy) created by the Granite Fiber Art’s team.
