Let’s start off by meeting Kevin.
Kevin Reda is the Youth Ministry Coordinator at Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Laval. For the past few months Kevin has been growing out a healthy head of hair. It has got to the point where, when stretched out, his hair reaches to just above his shoulders. After months and months of growing it out and getting mixed reactions from his loved ones, an idea grew into our minds to have a fundraiser to cut his hair. Kevin agreed, but he had little faith we would even reach our goal. He said that if we reach $5000 he would happily get a buzz cut. If we reach $8000, he pledged to go the extra mile and go completely bald. Otherwise, he would keep his luscious locks and maybe even cut it and style it like Brad Pitt. We cannot let this happen. We must prove Kevin wrong and reach our goal.
The money raised will be donated to Agape and Holy Name of Jesus Parish, two places chosen by Kevin. Let’s work together and get his haircut once and for all!
As a way to encourage Kevin to go the extra step and completely shave his head, Steve and another mystery youth have both decided to alter their hair as we reach certain milestones.
How the fundraiser will work:
As we reach each milestone, the following hair-tastic courses of action will take place
· $5000- Kevin will get a buzz cut.
· $6000- Steve will dye his hair purple.
· $8000- Kevin will go completely bald.
· $12000- A mystery youth will get a bald cut.
After reaching our minimum goal of $5000 we will be hosting a zoom event where if you have donated at least 20$, you will be invited to watch the youth getting their hair modified and cut live.

Who is Holy Name of Jesus?
The Holy Name of Jesus parish community has been around for over 50 years evangelizing and serving the people of Laval. As the pandemic began and the world started to face new daily struggles and experience additional stress & anxiety, our parish has also been vulnerable to the impact of the pandemic. This time has been a challenge for us all.
However, we did not let this stop us from continuing our mission to evangelize and serve you, our parishioners and friends. Among other things, we have launched our daily live streamed mass, have held online prayer groups and youth nights, hosted a virtual camp in partnership with the Archdiocese of Montreal, and have posted weekly Gospel Reflection videos. As well, in this new year, we have initiated an online version of our Faith First program where we continue to accompany children on their faith journey.
As you can tell our parish continues to carry out the mission of evangelization. However, our parish finances were greatly impacted over this time and without the public masses and regular donations coming in, we have seen a substantial drop in our revenue. This fundraiser will greatly help us to continue our mission through your financial support. We thank you for what you have given in the past and for what you will be able to give now and into the future
