How fun is that as a charitable proposition?! A small design agency named HelloAtto have come up with the Build a Beard Workshop and decided to donate $1 to Kiva.org for every fake beard that is downloaded and either stuck onto a face and photographed or just photoshopped into an existing picture. The gallery of beards is impressive and HelloAtto have already arranged their first Kiva loan. Good going guys!
More in the way of hirsute giving is a nifty initiative called Movember, as they tongue-in-cheekily put it on the website: ‘Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.’ Lots of men are actively not shaving to help causes like prostate cancer. And lots of ladies are probably none too pleased!
Still, facial hair can change lives…who knew?!
