Beard Challenge

What is the Beard Challenge? How does it work?

Men (Challenge Participants) grow their beards in support of the (YHH) Your Helping Hand of North America Food and Clothing Division 

Yep, No Shaving!

 Those interested must sign up by Friday Sept. 28th in order to be a Challenge Participant.

See details below for Challenge Participant Commitments and How to Sign Up.

As a part of the challenge, Participants are reaching out into their Family/Friend networks in order to raise money for YHH. Funds raised will support continuing community efforts sponsored by YHH such as: Clothing Giveaways, Food distribution to Local Schools, and many more.

Also, this is a COMPETITION! Challenge Participants are competing for PRIZES. At the end of the challenge period, voting will take place by the YHH Board of Directors. Winners will be contacted and awarded a prize (and also published on this website).

The 'No Shaving' challenge period begins Monday Oct. 1st and ends on Friday Nov. 16th.

Exception: When extremely necessary, Challenge Participants can shave and restart growing their beard. But, this may impact their ability to win a prize!
