Jimmy Niggles Esq. began growing his beard in honour of his mate Wes who was tragically killed by melanoma at the age of 26.

The idea… this glorious growth as a life saving conversation starter, challenging as many people as possible to get a skin check – something which could save you from a suss looking spot before it’s too late.

Now, more than 10 years on, Jimmy’s beard has become one of the most famous (and valuable) in the world. It has:

Only been trimmed once,
by Sir Richard Branson, on
Necker Island, with a bar knife.

Heartily endorsed by
Chris Hemsworth
to his 46 million IG fans.

Lifted a guy.
A fairly hefty one at that.
Without a warm up.

Taken the stage at TEDx
in front of a few thousand people
in The Sydney Opera House.

Starred as a coverboy
for an illustrious magazine
(the Wentworth Courier)

Been reproduced as tattoos,
murals, artworks, memes
and tea cups on greek islands.

Set up a skin check clinic
on Capital Hill
with the Camel Man.

Became the first
bearded bloke in a global
American Crew Campaign.

Placed 5th at the
World Beard Championships
in Austin Texas.

Has its own Beard Oil
(a signature series)
complete with 23 carat gold.

Once enjoyed a beer
with a bull
barefoot.

Did a live TV cross
from Hollywood
to Australia (with Karlos).

Co-hosted a BEARD exhibition
in London
attracting over 33,000 visitors.

Got turned into a paint brush
for an artwork series
by famous Aussie artists.

And presented our plan
to the Federal Minister
for Health, Greg Hunt.

But by far the most impressive feature of the #MillionDollarBeard, is that it now helps save more than a life a week. People who might not be here if it weren’t for its powerful message, and the charity movement it has helped create.

BUT NOW, AFTER A BRUTAL 2020
WE ARE FINALLY READY TO SHAVE
THIS THING OFF, IN:

AT… THE #MILLIONDOLLARBEARD BALL

To be held at the Ivy Ballroom on Thursday the 13th of May, 2021!

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

WHO’S ON BOARD?

We’ve already partnered with some mighty fine companies, philanthropists and organisations who have generously committed to supporting our targeted National Skin Check Program. Providing free, pop-up skin check clinics for communities most at risk from melanoma – Australia’s national cancer.

All of these pioneering, forward thinking supporters are helping us provide AI assisted skin checks to people all around Australia. A vital initiative which will contribute to a body of evidence which we aim to table in Parliament – showing how our model best maximises the talent of specialists, dermatology and technology to provide a more accurate and cost effective screening program. Literally, paving the way for a world first. If you want to help make a massive difference to a preventable, national problem, this is your golden opportunity…
