A hair raising fundraiser in support of Bowel Cancer Australia
Now in its fifth year down under, December is Decembeard® for Bowel Cancer Australia.
A hair–raising fundraiser held during the month of December (1-31 December), Decembeard® encourages men to grow a beard or some chin stubble in the final month of the year to raise awareness and much needed funds for bowel cancer.
Launched in 2011 by our good friends and UK charity partner, Beating Bowel Cancer, Decembeard® was created as a quirky way to draw attention to the UK's second biggest cancer killer – bowel cancer – and to raise funds.
One of the many things Australia has in common with the UK, as well as our joint love of manly facial hair, is that bowel cancer is also Australia's second biggest cancer killer.
So come on Australia, grow a beard this December, raise funds and help us beat bowel cancer.
