In 2014, there were still mustaches

Original: Mustaches for Kids: Vancouver Chapter

BCCHF-logo-webOnce again, a small subset of manly men in Vancouver will use sharp blades and small electric appliances to remove all hair from their face areas. They will then continue to shave said faces on a regular basis except for the area above the upper lip and below the nose, thus creating a mustache.

These mustaches will grow for nearly one full lunar cycle until they reach maturity. As they grow, their owners will collect donations and raise funds for the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Being a group of dynamic, mustache-growing men, we’ve decided to set our sights on a new beneficiary of our fundraising efforts. The BC Children’s Hospital, located in Vancouver, does fantastic and important work to take care of the province’s most seriously ill and injured children, from newborn to adolescent.

We’ve always been about the kids, and so is BC Children’s Hospital. So let’s get our “grow” on.

Clean Shave Day is Thursday, November 6th at The Railway Club (Seymour and Dunsmuir) at 8pm!

You Grew A Mustache For These Kids

Original: Mustaches for Kids Ottawa

Hayden’s Wish To Go … On A Disney Cruise Line

Hayden is a beautiful 5 year old boy with severe epilepsy. When we visited him he told us right away that he wanted to “see Pluto on a big boat!” Hayden’s wish was our command, and we sent him on a Disney Cruise Line®.

He a fantastic time. Hayden loved playing in Andy’s Room (based on the Toy Story character) and in the Oceaneer’s club. He was thrilled to find out that he could get ice cream all day. He danced on the Castaway Cay island and met Mickey Mouse. But the moment he was waiting for was the chance to meet Pluto.

“The look on his face when he met Pluto for the first time made me cry,” Hayden’s mom told us. “The sheer joy on his face was the definite highlight of the wish trip.”

His family thanked us for making Hayden’s dreams come true, and also thanked WestJet for “all of the wonderful help they gave our family to make travelling easier.”

Just Let Them Grow!

Original: The Beard Coach

Bearded Brethren –

Our collective voice is needed!  The time has come for beard discrimination – Beardscrimination – to end!  My man Shane is working from his deep-seated beliefs that the hairs on a man’s face are not an indicator of his trustworthiness or his academic prowess.

Brigham Young University has long held the beard in contempt for unknown reasons.  I even wrote about this ridiculousness in my Beard Manifesto (download here) waaaaaaay back in the year 2009.

You can do your part by promoting the movement’s website and takng part in its efforts to make the beard acceptable to the “Powers That Be” at BYU.   http://www.bikeforbeards.com

It also wouldn’t hurt just to point out that this is what Brigham Young – the namesake of the beardless university looked like.

Really, BYU?  What this non-Mormon is picking up is a lot of hypocrisy.  Maybe it’s time for an about-face on this policy.  An about-bearded-face.

NY Times: “The modern man has a beard.”

Stating the oh-so obvious, the New York Times, famous for “all the news that’s fit to print,” recently declared what all of us have known for quite some time: The modern man has a beard.

The Times was reporting on the big international men’s trade show Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy, where most of the male fashion models sported beards. According to the report, there has been a “generational shift from the smooth cheeks that defined Western masculinity for at least 100 years.”

Happy Birthday, Beard!

Original: The Beard Coach

beard cupcakes

Happy birthday to you – Happy birthday to you – Happy biiiiiirthday, dear Beard.  Happy birthday to you!

Beard, you’re ten years old today!  Ten years old!  You’re no longer a small child beard, but you haven’t yet gotten to the strange pre-teen stage where angst and drama could begin to burst forth at any moment.  Nope, you’re comfortable with who you are and you know what you like.

You like staying pretty long, but not epic length.  Just long enough for people to notice you and wonder, “Where are that hipster’s horn-rimmed glasses?  And why isn’t he wearing chukkas?  Maybe his anchor tattoo is covered up by his sleeve.”

You like waving in a good strong breeze.  Like a noble flag.  Made of hair.

You like taking a dip in the water in the summer so that the air can cool my face in the most refreshing way.

Occasionally you get a wild hair (see what I did there!) to be trimmed close to my face.  Only for you to hear my wife accost me for harming you.  Even though you asked for it.

We have so much fun together, Beard!  Remember these classic moments?

– Losing that pie eating contest, but looking so awesome when we were done that everyone wanted our picture

Atlanta Residents Should Check These Blinds Out

Original: Atlanta Mustache

Window Blinds for Atlanta Residents

Atlanta is a city to live in because of its rich history and tradition.

The people are friendly and you can get some of the best tasting peaches all year round. When it comes to window blinds, it is important that you make the correct choice.

A very popular window blind type for Atlanta residents is decorative roller shades.

You can get a cool print on them and the best part is that some of them will provide insulation during the cold months while still cooling your home during the summer.

Atlanta’s weather varies depending on the season and for this reason, it is important that you choose the right window blinds. For the best prices please click on blinds Boston , blinds Columbus , blinds Fort Wayne , blinds St. Paul , blinds Nashville ,

Thursday March 20th

Original: The Jacksonville Beardsmith Society


Hello Beardsmith's,

Over the past several months, years… I've been asked, "Do you shampoo your beard?", "Do you use conditioner?" "Any recommendations?" Well thanks to our friends at Beardsley, Beardbrand, and Honest Amish, we have some samples for our next meeting. I've received shampoo, conditioner, oils, lotion, and some wax. I'll bring some small bottles with me so you can try some of these at home. If you happen to have any small 3oz bottles, bring them with you and I'll hook you up with some products to try. I'll also bring some products that I have so you can try them out as well. If you've ever had any questions about waxing your mustache, Devon and Sam Holcombe will be doing a waxing demo to show us all how it's done. I hope to see you on Thursday, March 20th at Underbelly from 6pm-9pm. Bring your questions and your facial hair. It'll be fun!!!!!
