It's beard season once again, and what do beards want? To destroy breast cancer. Last year we raised $5,344.54 and in three years of Beards4Boobs, we've raised a total of $12,978.85 for research on our vile foe.
If you've been with us before, you'll notice some changes in the donation mechanism. The actual process of delivering the donation to the BCRF, which should have been simple, was complicated by the amount exceeding a transaction limit on my checking account that I had been unaware of. So, to combat that, to give donors a proper 501(c)(3) deductability status, and to take PayPal's cut and direct it back to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, we're going to try to send the donations to the BCRF directly. This may cause some growing pains and I'll do my best to stay on top of it.
Beyond your fundraising efforts and/or donations, what more can you do to help Beards4Boobs? I'm glad you asked! You can spread the word and drop a few bucks in the kitty by purchasing a Beards4Boobs apparel item (http://beards4boobs.spreadshirt.com/). You can also spread the word far and wide and help recruit participants. Men and women are welcome!
