G'day and welcome to Beard Season's online HQ.
Home to those who beard with purpose
(and the gems who help us do so).
Back in 2010, our mate Wes Bonny died from melanoma. He was only 26. At his wake we came up with an idea called Beard Season ~ formerly known as winter.
Here's how it works:
- Grow your beard from the 1st of June ~ August 31
- Get a skin check with your GP or dermatologist
- Use your beard to challenge others to do the same
What started as a cheeky challenge has grown into a global movement. We now have ambassadors in over 24 countries, amassed a community of over 80,000 people and gained millions in earned media. But by far our proudest achievement is that we now potentially save a life a week. We call them #BeardSeasonVictories. People who might not be here if it weren't for our friendly, furry advice.
Not a bad excuse to unleash a majestic neck mane right? Well, if you're keen to get involved, save lives and help make a massive difference - it'd be an honour to have you aboard.
