Donating technology to kids with special needs
Help us reach our biggest goal
Register as a beard, babyface or beauty
Show off your beard-growing skills by registering to grow a beard and getting sponsors!
Can’t grow an epic beard? No Problem! Keep a perfectly shaven face all month. Register to be a babyface and get sponsors!
Instead of a beard, wear a scarf all month! “Scarves for Schools.” Register, pick up your scarf at Five Nines, then get sponsors!
Scruff for Schools is a program created by Five Nines that uses scruffy faces to donate technology to children with special needs.
James (a Five Nines co-founder) has a son, Kaden, who lives with cerebral palsy. Kaden greatly benefits from the use of an iPad; which showed the Five Nines Family the need for a program like this. By combining No-Shave November with donating technology to children with special needs, Scruff for Schools was born.

I was born with a very rare syndrome called Nager Syndrome. This has affected my hearing, language, speech, skeletal development and fine motor skills. I have had many surgeries to help me with these issues. I use my iPad to do my class work. I take notes, write stories, practice my spelling and use the internet for research. It has made my transition to middle school a lot easier. I also find time to play games on my iPad.
