BENEFITING: Break the Cycle
There are few things in our culture that are more iconically manly than a beard, and the ability to grow a good beard. But in my opinion, the manliest thing a man can do is love, respect and support their partner. Unfortunately we still live in a world with far too prevalent violence involving intimate partners towards each other. Now I am far from perfect myself, but I do feel strongly about doing what I can to help with ushering in real social change. One of the strongest ways to end domestic violence is to educate the next generation and hopefully end the recurrence of violence within families and generations. That being said, this November as men grow beards for all numbers of well-worthy causes, I will grow a beard and not shave it until I have raised $1,000 (or until January 1st, 2015). I am giving myself 2 months to raise that money and hopefully raise awareness that will last for generations. Money earned will go to an organization that helps to educate our youth.
