On Tuesday I met some inspiring business owners who all run companies (mostly social enterprises) that truly make a difference in the world. Beardbase has occasionally helped the strive towards improving the mental health of men, for example with our donation to Mind during Mental Health Week 2015. Well, the social enterprise owners I met made me realise that doing good shouldn't be one week a year, it should be forever. A mission statement. A core value.
So, today this company changed. From now on 10% of our all sales will be donated to mental health charities such as CALM and Mind, who provide essential services to help men deal with their demons and pull through. Suicide is the biggest cause of death for men in the UK under age 45. This is often due to men feeling like they don’t have anyone to talk to. That’s an astonishing figure and it's unacceptable.
By growing out your beard and supporting our company you’re supporting your fellow man.
Your beard could save a life.
