2013 Beard Of The YEAR Winner

Well folks, after a hard-fought voting battle that literally (not literally) came down to the whisker, I’m pleased to announce that we can finally declare 2013’s BEST beard…

Before the winner is announced, I want to give a big thanks to everyone who eagerly jumped in to help support the cause. People caught on quickly that this was about a lot more than beards, and really worked hard to help us raise support for victims of human trafficking. If you donated, you can stay tuned to the project your money is going to support by visiting Live 58′s project page for victims of human trafficking.

2013 Beard Of The Year

[box color=gray]

There are more than 27 million children, women, and men who work as slaves in our world today. These 27 million are stuck in brothels, rice mills, and brick kilns, forced to work against their will.

December 2013 Beard Of The Month

Though this month’s winning beard is new to my eyes, the face behind it is not. Bryan Parrish and I lived on the same dorm for a year, and hence got to learn some pretty fun facts together, like 101 ways to cook ramen, how to contain the funk that is your unattended laundry basket in the corner, and how to trust cafeteria food.

Even though we didn’t know it then, I’m pretty sure what bonded us was our future affinity for beard-growing, one of the greatest relationship glues known to mankind. Bryan is a funny and Godly dude, a better golfer than me, and the Senior Pastor at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Mayo, FL.  But enough about Bryan- let’s talk about his beard! Continue reading…
