FUNDRAISING TIPS

For fine facial follicles

SAGE ADVICE...

NEVER FEAR ASKING QUESTIONS

It's not how big your beard it, it's how you use it... Every single person you meet during Beard Season is another golden opportunity to save their life, and raise funds towards your tally. Your boss, your aunty, that person in the elevator. You're not annoying them. You're helping them. Encouraging them to get a skin check and inviting them to be part of history - chippinin for Australia's first national skin check program. How awesome is that. Now get out there and HUSTLE YOUR RUSTLE.

MAKE THE MAN PAY

COMPANY DONATION MATCHING

A lot of companies have an Employee Dollar Matching Program, and will match your fundraising or donation to a charity - dollar for dollar. It's a popular workplace initiative, so ask your HR Department, or Corporate Social Responsibility team if it's something your workplace has. If not, why not ask if they'd be willing to support you and make a tax deductible donation to Beard Season, and email them a link to your profile. No email? No problem... print and deliver them this:

DONATE TO YOURSELF

We know... this sounds a little weird. You're already growing the beard right... isn't this enough? Well, according to statistics, people who donate to their own profile raise twice as much as people who don't. So lead by example and show your friends and family how it’s done. You'll be surprised what your first $50 could turn into.

YOU'RE DOING THIS FOR A REASON

DON'T BE SHY

Most of us feel awkward asking for money. Flip that. You're doing something brilliant with your beard!! You should be proud of how it grows, how many lives you might have saved with it and how many donations you have to back it all up. People will appreciate your passion. You're growing for something great here and people deserve to know about it. Ask twice, three times and more. Hundreds of people have taken more nagging than that to get a skin check and it could have saved their life. So don't let up and #BeardWithPurpose.
