The Finnish Resthome hosted one of the Alzheimer Society’s Coffee Breaks this morning, but one citizen took it above and beyond.
Gerard Roussell let his hair and beard grow for a year and a half, in hopes to collect donations on his way to shaving it off. The day came today and ONNtv camera’s were on location to uncover a new man.
Roussell, who has family members in the Finnish resthome wanted to do his part. He became the first person to host an event using the Alzheimer’s foundation web based donation system.
Roussell hosted a 12 hour live stream on his “Twitch” account, where he collected $282 from his fan base, and another $235 from the event Wednesday.
