The Charity Beard Campaign Lets you Vote & Donate

Some people will stop at nothing to get others involved in a funny charity beard campaign and this is a great example.

This campaign crowdsources ideas and then asks the same audience to vote by way of donating money to a homeless charity for any beard they think is good enough to win.

The funny charity beard that garners the most amount of donations over the campaign will then have to be worn for a whole working week.

Implications - This is almost like the international moustache campaign known as 'Movember' where thousands of men across the globe grow facial hair with the hopes of drawing awareness for prostate cancer. Personally, I'm all for any campaign that will help raise awareness about a serious disease or illness. If you need facial hair for that -- go ahead!
