Yep. Beard growing officially starts June 1st, registrations for 2024 will open early May, so rest assured it’s never too late. We’ll take them in all dimensions till the end of August. Already blessed with a beard? Keep growing it and get on board for the shave in September.
A beard is a way to show support, build awareness and raise life-changing funds to help families hurting after the loss of their baby through miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal or infant death. This is a community campaign where strength comes from more beards on deck…dads who have experienced loss, their mates, family members and colleagues.
Funds raised from this campaign are directed in entirety to the Bears of Hope registered non-profit organisation, allowing them to continue providing leading support and exceptional care for families who experience the loss of their baby. Have a look below at the funds raised in our
2023 Beards of Hope campaign.

Add a bit of extra beard to your campaign with our Beards of Hope merchandise.
Our range of clothing and accessories can kit out you and your team, with all proceeds going towards the Bears of Hope fundraising effort.
