Shave the Shore™ Campaign on Target to Raise $20,000 to Support Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

Shave the Shore™ Campaign on Target to Raise $20,000 to Support Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

Following the recent destruction that Hurricane Sandy has inflicted on the Jersey Shore, Howard Klein, Freehold, publicly pledged on Facebook
NOT to shave until he personally raised $10,000 to help Jersey Shore families
struck by Sandy’s path. From this, the Shave the Shore campaign was formed. 

On Day 14 of the campaign, at which time nearly $9,000 was already raised, Michael Bocian, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Darby Dental Supply, presented the following challenge to Klein via Facebook:

“Challenge: Raise $15,000 total and Darby Dental Supply will commit another $5,000 to bring your total to $20,000! This is a great cause and we are happy and proud to support you at this very important and needing time. Are you up to the challenge?” 

Klein immediately accepted, and the donations continue to steadily come in. 100% of all donations will go to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. 

“Hurricane Sandy has affected so many of our friends, family and partners, so we, too, have taken this blow very personally,” said Bocian. “Once we saw the effort that Howard was putting forth with his Shave the Shore campaign, we knew we couldn’t sit back and just hope that everything would work out.”

With the original goal of $10,000 accomplished, Klein and his team at Lanmark360, a local healthcare advertising agency based in West Long Branch, now have extra incentive to raise even more money to meet Darby’s challenge. “The response and support we have received for the Shave the Shore campaign thus far has been nothing short of remarkable,” stated Klein. “We have met our original goal of $10,000, and with Darby’s proposed challenge, we’re now aiming for double that amount. The Darby crew has given us that extra support, generosity and motivation to keep ‘growing!’”
