Winter in Australia is cold! To keep your handsome face warm you could wear a scarf or you could grow a winter beard to challenge behaviours and help create a nation where all women live in safety, free from violence and abuse! White Ribbon Australia is encouraging everyone who can, to stand up, speak out and grow a beard to help end men's violence against women. If you already have a beard, you can still get involved by growing it even longer. All funds raised support White Ribbon Australia's vital primary prevention initiatives and education programs.

The 2017 Grow a Winter Beard campaign raised $1412 for White Ribbon, which is great, but the campaign will be back, bigger and better than ever in 2018, so prepare yourself, prepare your friends, and prepare your workplace for a bearded you from June to August 2018 while you Grow a Winter Beard to help White Ribbon end men's violence against women.

Grow a Winter Beard in 2018 and Support White Ribbon Australia!

Don't want to wait for June 2018? Then support White Ribbon any time of the year:

$1412 raised in 2017!!

Get Involved Today

Men’s violence against women is not just a women’s issue. It’s a social issue. It’s everybody’s issue. It’s a men’s issue because it is their wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and colleagues whose lives are being harmed by violence and abuse.

Sign up in 2018 to help bring the issue out of the darkness and show your support.

Get your friends and family to sponsor your new or existing beard and start raising money today. If you already have a full face or a family member wants you to keep it clean get them to sponsor you for that! Get the chance to rock the beard you want and support this important cause.

Stand up, speak out and grow a winter beard to help end violence against women.


Uniting Your Local Community

Be part of this exciting hairy fundraising event that will bring together the local community to raise much needed funds and awareness to end men's violence against women. 2018 will be the second year that CanBeards, the beard and moustache club of Canberra, teams with White Ribbon for their Grow A Winter Beard campaign. So get growing your beard until the end of August. Come September, you can shave it all off for spring or maintain your new look as a proudly bearded man.

Grow a beard for winter in 2018 and support a great cause.
