Shaving my beard for the dogs!

$1,140 of $1,000 goal
Given by 23 generous donors in 5 weeks

I'm shaving my beard - in memory of Misty. I will be shaving my beard and all donations will be going to HUHA, an excellent animal charity.



As many of you know, I have spent over a year cultivating this facial fungus, after the tragic (but much expected) loss of my head hair. You will also know how much effort I put into my beard, how much time I spend stroking it whilst pondering the problems of the universe, and how much excitement I get from seeing a new beard oil. In fact my entire face couldn't even fit into the Givealittle photo due to my beard, which gave me much joy.

However there is one thing I love more than my beard - and that is dogs. As some of you may know, my beautiful girl Misty passed away on the 10th of May 2020, which was an incredibly hard time. To commemorate my gorgeous girl, I have decided to shave my beard on the weekend of 8/9th May 2021, with all donations for my beard going to the excellent animal charity HUHA (Helping you help animals).

As a bonus, the highest single donation will get to decide what shape my beard will be shaved into, and kept for 7 days!! Feel free to be creative and add the shape into your donation comment so we know who leads, with one beard shape exception (you will all know which moustache is the exception, and it looks very similar to Charlie Chaplins moustache, so a vote for this will count as a vote for mutton chops, as well as anything profane). I will be shaving my beard regardless of whether we reach the donation target goal - but let's try get there!!!

So please feel free to donate as little or as much as you feel comfortable, if you would like to donate in memory of your loved pet please feel free to write their name in :) Thank you all!

Animals give so much of their life to us, it's only fair we try give what we can back to them.

I'm shaving my beard - but let's help save even more dogs!!!  18 April 2021

Hey everyone, thank you so much to all the generous donors and supporters that have contributed to this campaign so far - we're so close to the first target that I decided to set a slightly higher goal and together we can help save even more dogs!!! Three weeks and counting until the beard comes off, there's some great suggestions for beard styles out there!

As a bonus, here's a picture of Max - a lovely Kelpie I worked with at RSPCA in Australia, he was extremely sweet natured and made this exact face as soon as he saw food - so at least we had one thing in common!
