Brilliant! Build a Beard!

There are some brilliant people in the world. For example, the creators of Build a Beard Workshop. You choose a photo, download one of the Build a Beard beards to photoshop (or print out, cut and stick it) on your face, then submit it to the Workshop. And the greatness doesn't stop there. For every bearded image that's submited $1 will be put into a Kiva account to help someone in a developing country.

Photobucket

This is without a doubt the best thing since sliced bread...or at least Free Rice.

Have a happy weekend!

Totally agree - both these sites could possibly be one of my fave past times now. :)

Muriel Mercurial said...

This is such an amazing idea! I am totally going to do this to a few of my own pictures. Plus, both of you look so lovely in your "bearded" photographs I can't even handle it :).

Liz Blair said...

What a crazy idea! As a marketing teacher, I can envision all kinds of variations on this theme. What about putting people in a beehive hairstyle? Or funny glasses might be interesting. Glad to see that you guys haven't lost your sense of humor.

Hi Everyone! Let us know when you post a pic of yourself with a Build a Beard beard! I can't wait to see them all!

In Her Twenties, it's definitely cooling down in Atlanta, but a light coat is only necessary in the morning.

Liz Blair, great idea about the beehive hairdos. You should start a Build a Hairdo site!
