As you know, Always Bearded Lifestyle™ has stood behind the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada (CCAC) since we first launched on Canada Day of this year, donating 10% off all proceeds from our clothing, accessories, and house blend of products. We are proud to have worked closely with the CCAC to bring a truly great cause to the forefront.
Decembeard aims to encourage REAL men… and dare we say REAL women, throughout Canada to grow a beard during the month of December to get people talking about colon cancer and raise vital funds for the CCAC. No worries, REAL women are welcome to imagine what it’s like by posting a photo of themselves sporting an artificial or drawn-on beard. Men, we hope you stray from fake beards and grow the real thing. Keep us updated by submitting pictures to us through our social media channels or online at alwaysbearded.com/submit-picture/ and remember to always use the hashtag #decembeardcanada.
The campaign was established in the UK in 2011 and the CCAC is proud to join their partners in the UK; down under in Australia, as well as our KIWI friends in New Zealand in this crazy campaign to beard up for colon cancer. That’s a lot of beard-growing for a great cause!
Colorectal cancer is the second biggest cancer killer for men and women combined in Canada, and yet it is 90% preventable and curable if caught in its early stages. In 2014, 1 in 13 men and 1 in 16 women will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer. This amounts to approximately 24,400 (about 13,500 men and 10,800 women) new cases of colorectal cancer each year. That’s why awareness is so important.
We encourage everyone to join in this venture and help raise some money. Funds raised will help us to support people with colon cancer, raise awareness of the disease and promote screening in Canada.
