I’ve been looking into creative ways to raise money for a good cause and recently stumbled across the Build a Beard workshop, from Atto, a design agency in Belfast. It works like this: Photoshop a beard onto your face and they’ll donate $1 to Kiva, a microlending organization that empowers entrepreneurs (mostly women, I bet) in the third world.
That’s it. No catch. So I sent in my photo. I chose the “Lemmy” beard because, c’mon, it’s Lemmy.
