The founders of Beards BeCAUSE, Jared Yerg and Scott Doerr, are just a few regular guys who came up with a great idea on a Sunday afternoon.

The abuse of women and children is intolerable, and we are hoping that bringing the issue to light will help more women realize that they are in unhealthy relationships and give them courage to make a change, while at the same time providing much needed funds to take care of these women and their families. We felt that doing something that is a symbol of masculinity, growing a beard, in support of these women's plight had a nice dichotomy.
