WORLD’S GREATEST SHAVE 2022

On March 20th, 2022 we completed a 14+ hour live stream in support of blood cancer, raising money for the World’s Greatest Shave fundraiser with the Leukaemia Foundation!

Thank you to everyone that joined us for the event. We managed to raise just over $3700 AUD during the course of the live stream and we are now currently a few hundred dollars shy of making the $5000 goal. Donations can still be made up until the end of the financial year.
 
 

Live Head Shaving

For those that don’t know, Genevieve to the right in this image is my sister. Genevieve suffers from Leukaemia and has Down syndrome. She had a go at shaving my head and then my best mate, Damian took over. See the images below and the video further down.

 

Community Involvement

Thanks to the below amazing communities, we were able to put on a unique show and display of video gaming and dash cam discussion. Check out what was involved below. 

Autosport Therapy

Thank you to Sticky Flames for jumping on board for an interview in regard to his community, Autosport Therapy! For this part of the live stream we had some technical issues at the start but managed to get the event going where we raced some custom routes built by the Autosport Therapy community in Forza Horizon 4. I can’t recommend this community enough with the amazing work they do with custom route building in the Forza Horizon 4 and 5!!!

Meet and Cruise

Thank you to OMGWTHEFBBQ for chatting with us about his community, Meet and Cruise. It was great to hear about where it all began and how it’s evolved. I personally have loved being involved in their meets and earlier on just stuffing around with OMG in Forza Horizon 4. For this part of the live stream another member, Ash took us on a cruise with photo locations and racing in Forza Horizon 5.

For this event we used a livery created by Automotive Gaming Community member, Hanz! He recreated the World’s Greatest Shave logo from scratch and created liveries for two cars to be used in this event with Meet and Cruise.

Barrel Rollers
 
 
Thanks to Raindancer for jumping in last minute to discuss what the Barrel Rollers community is all about, where it started and where it is now. For this we ran Dirt Rally 2.0 clubs designed by the community. It has been awesome fun over the years participating in these clubs and I have met some fast drivers and great people from this community. I advocate for them on my Twitch whenever playing Dirt Rally 2.0! ;D

Late Night Racing
 
 
It was with great pleasure to have this community involved, Late Night Racing! I’ve been working with this community for a number of years, participating in their races and now commentating their races. Big Roo, one of my all time favourite supporters jumped in for an interview on behalf of founder and creator Paul.
 
Big Roo organised a one-time charity race in Forza Motorsport 7 between two Aussie legends, the Ford XB Falcon and Holden A9X Torana, which I commentated. He even created a custom World’s Greatest Shave livery for both!

Blood Cancer

In April of 2020 my sister Genevieve with Down syndrome was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. It has been a rough couple of years battling through this immense change in our lives, from being told in 2020 that Genevieve’s survival was very low, to being in and out of remission multiple times, to now having a glimmer of hope for Genevieve’s longevity.

Who is Genevieve?

Genevieve has always been a go getter! Going to work precisely on time, dancing with the e.motion21 group, loving to spend any moment cooking and watching Home and Away. Check out a few videos of Genevieve’s achievements in the past below. Unfortunately, due to Genevieve’s condition and compromised immune system she has only been able to attend events online, and cannot currently pursue her time in the workforce or IRL dancing. Regardless, she is a strong and happy individual who is not giving up! 

Bringing People Together

Thanks to the amazing online communities that I am involved with, I have been able to put together a fun filled day of video gaming while promoting this charity and cause. We hope to raise $5000 AUD as part of “Team CRUDE” with the World’s Greatest Shave campaign!
