2nd Annual Decembeard -- a "Beards for Breasts" fundraising campaign benefitting the National Breast Cancer Foundation
2nd Annual DecemBeard "Beards for Breasts" Campaign
While we have a month dedicated to raising money by growing mustaches (Movember), there is not a month for those people out there who prefer growing a full beard (or who are a little hesitant to try the mustache route). Continuing to follow in the inspirational footsteps of Movember and in the spirit of the holidays and the "giving season", we present the 2nd annual DecemBeard campaign.
The campaign will run the length of December and the goal is to grow the best beard during those 31 days that you can while doing some "fun"draising at the same time. Much like our Movember brethren, we will be raising money in support of cancer research, but in this case, it will be for breast cancer awareness and research. That's right, it's the "Beards for Breasts" DecemBeard fundraising campaign with all proceeds going directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
So whether you want to just grow a beard in support of the campaign, can't grow a beard and only want to donate, want to do both, or you just grow a beard in the winter every year no matter what, jump on board with us for a little ho-ho-holiday giving. Because tis the season for caring...and sharing a little holiday spirit and compassion.
Why are we doing this?
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Also, each year, there will be an estimated 225,000 new cases of breast cancer in U.S. women and approximately 2,000 new cases in U.S. men. Based on those numbers, it is a disease that can have an affect on all of us in some form or fashion: whether it's you personally, a family member, or a friend. In fact, we (Team Decembeard) have several good friends whose moms have been diagnosed with breast cancer. So we move forward with the 2nd year of this annual tradition in honor of our friends’ mothers and in honor of anyone else who has had to fight this disease or who has had a family member or friend fight breast cancer.
