Designed for active military, emergency services personnel and those who want to support them, Brother Shave is an innovative new subscription service that provides necessary shaving products at a huge cost savings—with a percentage of profits going to aid those suffering from physical wounds, PTSD, anxiety, depression and other mental illnesses.
Of course, we men folk have to shave every day in order to maintain the required standard, right? The major razor companies are charging a premium for an everyday product that simply does not cost that much to manufacture.
By way of introduction, I am Anthony, the founder of Brother Shave. I am 28 years old and have served in the Australian Defence Force for the past nine years, with deployments to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Fiji and on border security. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with all three services whilst maintaining both command and training positions.
During this time, I have seen the stress and anxiety that comes from these operations—as well as the lasting impact that often comes following deployment. That is why I am an advocate for the mantra “It ain’t weak to speak,” while using my new business to support Soldier On, New Zealand Heroes Trust and Livin. Most important, while providing a means to purchase a necessity for a fraction of retailer pricing, I am using this platform to help remove the stigma associated with mental illness.
I hope you will join me in the close shave club in order to turn a requirement into a reason.
