Beards For Balls: The Finale

So, here we are. The end of November and it is mission accomplished. I have not shaved all month and have a relatively scruffy, almost Grizzly Adams style beard. As it stands, the charity balance is sitting at £205. This has taken me a bit by surprise, I was expecting about £20 with half of that coming from me. Honestly though, I came up with this idea as a comedic alternative to Movember and really didn't think it would take. This is the first proper charity thing I have ever done. I'm always quick off the mark to give to other people but it was nice for a wee change to try and get the money from others.

What to do now though?

The intention was to do this, and go for the full clean shave to get rid of it but I'm not sure now. Firstly, as a fat man, the beard hides the double [or in my case triple] chin. Having one less area of fat to try and disguise is always a bonus. Secondly, it is quite warm for this weather. I'll probably keep the basis that is there but tidy it up a bit.

To all those who contributed, thanks very much. It was a pleasure to save lives through laziness for you.

If you have not contributed but would like to, you can still use the button below. If you don't do the whole internet thing, you can email me using the link at the bottom of this page, text me or send a carrier pigeon and I will add your name to the form and get money off you at a later date.

All proceeds go to Everyman - The Male Cancer Campaign and you can view the beard's progress over the month using the embedded web album link below.
