2013 Beard of the Year – Cast your vote!

by Larry Hehn on January 6, 2014

Beard of the YearWho knew that something as simple as growing a beard could be so much fun, and benefit so many good causes?

A little less than a year ago, inspired by The Bearded Idealist‘s 2012 Beard of the Year competition and a challenge from some friends and family, I started growing my beard.

Along the way, my beard has helped DJ and Courtney Hofmann raise funds to finance an international adoption. It helped me portray some members of the Duck Dynasty clan for special church announcements. And it turned me into a really sweet looking shepherd for our Christmas Eve pageant.

I even had the honor of being named Beard of the Month for November 2013!

And now, along with 11 other awesome bearded gents, I’m in the running for 2013 Beard of the Year!

Here’s the part where we get to work together and have some fun:

The Beard of the Year competition benefits an organization called Live58, which is working to help free victims of human trafficking around the world. The winning beard will be the one that raises the highest amount of donations toward the cause.

The competition is only open until the end of the day Tuesday January 7, so there’s no time to wait! To see all the beards in the competition, click here. Once there, I’d be very pleased if you would scroll down to the November 2013 Beard of the Month and click it to cast your vote.

It’s not every day you get to determine a Beard of the Year and help out a very worthy cause at the same time. Please take advantage and show your support.

If you wish to save some time, click here to go straight to the Team Larry – Beard of the Year 2013 support page.

On behalf of Live58 and Stephen Haggerty, The Bearded Idealist himself, thank you for your support!

You and your beard are awesome, Larry! Thanks for all your promotion for Beard Of The Year. Your odds at this point are looking pretty good 🙂

I’ll be watching closely as the minutes wind down. This past year has been a blast. Thank you providing this forum, Stephen!

Well I didn’t vote for you Larry for obvious reasons but now that the competition is over I do want to congratulate you for a well earned victory! Most importantly may the funds raised be used to help those who have been caught up in the evil of human trafficking!

Thanks also to Stephen for a great idea with a great purpose!

Thank you very much, Caleb. I’m so pleased that together we were able to raise over $800 for Live58!
