The Great East Coast Recruitment Strike

In Advocate by El Rubio8 Comments

Media Strike & Recruitment Mission

Four media appearances over two days, through four states and a territory, with two live haircuts, a celebrity hairstylist, and one direct nonstop flight back to San Diego…just in time for the evening news.

These are the stories of the men recruiting a nation…and the hair donors who are ANSWERING THE CALL.

Alina McGilloway

Alina had been thinking of donating her hair, but from 2020 onward, through challenges and changes, grieving and loss, she became ever more resolved. Last year she learned about Children With Hair Loss, and The Great Cut, and signed up!

But when she got the call to cut her hair in advance, on CBS Philly, with a chance to encourage others to join our historic attempt, she didn’t hesitate. (And she’s still coming to The Great Cut in San Diego! 😄)

Beau Busby

Meanwhile Beau Busby, our very own Sigma Nu Fraternity brother (Kappa Phi), who knew El Rubio as a shorthair, learned about The Longhairs and had been dutifully growing long hair since The Great Cut 2019.

With a chance to link-up with long-lost brethren on the eastern seaboard, Brother Busy drove eight hours in each direction to donate two feet of flow, in thrilling fashion, LIVE on FOX 5 DC.
