Fundraising Via Facial Hair

Posted September 28th, 2010 in General and tagged , by neil

What began for me as a notion that I would pay tribute to my father by growing a beard every October, has transformed into a fledgling charity ‘event’ that is aimed to raise funds for cancer research as well as support and awareness. A few months ago I had the idea of the annual beard… and after thinking about it for a few days, I wanted to create some way of getting others involved. Why not try to spread the word and try to get other guys to do the same?

Introducing Octobeardfest. This will be an annual event that is aimed at raising funds for cancer research, as well as keeping awareness and support alive. Please go check out the site, and help spread the word around.

    This made me really laugh…… Using the Octoberfest and changing it into an Octobeardfest….. very good, funny and so very Horst’ish….
    Great stuff – I wish you all lots of money for the cancer research fund and may it all grow back again and again – year after year!
    Sorry for the few feed-backs. My computer dies on me constantly and I mustn’t push my luck with starting ‘stories’ because it just might ‘sign off’ again…. Thank you Neil!
