About Us

Decembeard® Australia: Grow a beard, raise funds and help us beat bowel cancer. 

Beards aren't just for hipsters, those with tattoos, men that ride motorbikes or people that are too lazy to shave. Anyone can help make real change happen. All you need to do is grow a beard (some chin stubble or bum fluff), and promote your facial hair to raise awareness and funds for Australia’s second biggest cancer killer - bowel cancer.

Decembeard® Australia's goal is to have a lasting impact where no one dies of bowel cancer and all those diagnosed receive the support they need.

Decembeard Australia

Now in its fourth year down under, December is Decembeard® for Bowel Cancer Australia.

A hair–raising fundraiser held during the month of December (1st-31st December), Decembeard® encourages men to grow a beard in the final month of the year to raise awareness and much needed funds for bowel cancer.

Launched in 2012 by our good friends and UK charity partner, Beating Bowel Cancer, Decembeard® was created as a quirky way to draw attention to the UK’s second biggest cancer killer – bowel cancer – and to raise funds.

One of the many things Australia has in common with the UK, as well as our joint love of manly facial hair, is that bowel cancer is also Australia’s second biggest cancer killer.

That's why we're asking Aussie men to grow a beard this December, raise funds and help us to save lives.

Women and children are also encouraged to take part in Decembeard® Australia by raising awareness of bowel cancer and encouraging their fathers, brothers, husbands, boyfriends, partners and male friends to find out about bowel cancer and grow a beard for Decembeard®!

The Decembeard® phenomenon continues to expand internationally, with men growing beards for bowel cancer via Decembeard UK, Decembeard Australia, Decembeard Canada, Decembeard Ireland and Decemberad NZ
