MortgageCouch's Awesome Summer

Hero Shave: If you know Matthew Couch, then you probably know about his beard. As MortgageCouch’s one year anniversary was nearing, Matthew had the idea of shaving it off at an event he and Shelby created called “Hero Shave.” Those who attended the event had two donation pots that they could give to. The proceeds went to three Veterans charities (our Heroes): The Cal-Vet Home Ventura, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1679 on Market St, and the education fund for the children of a past shipmate of Matthew’s. One donation pot was for Matthew saving his beard, and the other was for Matthew shaving it. Needless to say, more money was donated to the shave-it pot. So on a June’s night in Ventura, fifty plus people with scissors and clippers in hand took turns shaving Matthew’s face. It was a lot of fun, and we raised over $1,600! We can’t wait for next year’s anniversary party! Be sure to check out Matthew’s rendition of “Should I shave or should I grow” on this YouTube video of the Hero Shave event! Click here to watch.

MortgageCouch Meets the Goonies: We are proud to announce that we are in the process of developing a physical branch in Astoria Oregon! To cement our growth there, we hosted a BBQ event on the beach we called “MortgageCouch meets the Goonies”on June 25th. The event was named this because Astoria is the setting for this much-beloved 1985 film. The BBQ was a family friendly event, and we met several wonderful Oregonians.
