Grow a Beard This December For a Great Cause

Amount Raised This year:

Even though they itch a bit in the early days and make soup a questionable lunchtime choice, real men still grow beards. Why? Because real men like to feel like bears. Grizzly bears. Big, heaving, honey guzzling grizzly bears. The Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada is inviting real men to take part in Decembeard Canada and raise money to help those affected by colorectal cancer by getting sponsored to, you guessed it – grow a beard!

No worries, real women are also encouraged to take part by faking, making, or painting a beard. Post photos of yourselves sporting an artificial or drawn-on beard!

Together with our UK, New Zealand, and Australian friends, we are raising awareness of the second leading cause of cancer deaths in Canada. This December we are hoping to raise $100,000 to fund our work helping and supporting people with colorectal cancer and their families, and raising awareness of the disease, its symptoms and the need for early diagnosis.

So what are you waiting for, get growing!


Raising awareness of the disease, its symptoms and the need for early diagnosis.


Beards are stylish. Everyone loves a beard. Why not grow one with a purpose?

Tell your friends!

Spread the word that beards are in! You'll help raise awareness and have fun at the same time!
