Vote for Phill’s face!

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Phill has written in to tell of his outstanding beard’s upcoming disappearance.  But before it disappears, he’s taking votes on what to do with the beard.  The voting goes to support a charity that Phill has selected.  You may vote through September 30th, 2010.   See below for all the information.

After it’s all done, though, I think Phill should grow that full beard back again!

Here is Phill’s message:

I hail from London, England and, as happens to many of us, I’ve decided that it’s time for the beard to go, but not before one last hurrah!

In a nutshell, I’m shaving off more than a year’s worth of hair and four month’s of beard for charity, a homeless charity, Centrepoint – partly on the basis that I look like a homeless person, if I’m honest…

But there’s a twist.

I have to go through an intermediate stage that will look ridiculous/spectacular – and I don’t get to choose what that is, Joe Public does.

I’ve had a website/blog up and running for a couple of weeks now http://phillsface.wordpress.com/

And I’ve invited almost everyone I know and everyone they know to submit ideas for how to shape/shave my beard and hair – anything goes (that I’m actually capable of.)

More than 80 ideas from nearly 1,000 people have been shortlisted to five and these are now online for people to vote and donate as of today.  The one that gets the most donations is the one I have to sport for a week, at work from October 1st.

So, whatever they vote for, I have to go through with… and every vote is by way of a donation.

It would be great if you wanted to share this with your readers, Facebook, Twitter – anything to get some expert opinion involved.

This is what it’s all about: http://phillsface.wordpress.com/about/

I hope you enjoy it and would love it if you could share it!

Cheers

P.S.  This isn’t a corporate thing in any way.  I’m doing this all of my own back,  so there are no endorsements or anything except me having chosen a designated charity.

Andy! Now that’s a BEARD!

Andy kindly participated in an official beards.org photo shoot on September 23rd, 2010.  Unlike any other beards.org photo shoot to date, Andy’s photo shoot included a trip to the barber shop for a haircut and beard trim.   Here are some preview shots from the first part of the photo shoot.

Off to a great start: first photo from the shoot.
