#Decembeard 2013 was a blast! I thought getting the ‘not normally’ beardy men involved was going to be hard work but everyone jumped right on board.
We admit, we hash-tagged #Decembeard a lot, however all of your mentions and retweets that you did for us, including using our iPhone app to post your bearded selfies managed to reach over 3 million timelines deliveries on Twitter. 3,837,974 to be precise for just the month of December.
Right behind us @Bowel_Cancer_UK reached 996,514 timeline deliveries, @RealMickFoley hit 911,233 timeline deliveries, @HershyBru with 417,386, @Tregs140 at 285,756 and @BowelCancer managed to reach 241,687 timeline deliveries.

We have spoken to so many people on Twitter, all ages and from all different countries, merging them from #Movember to #Decembeard, having a little bit of banter along the way and educating those who didn’t realise Decembeard was ‘a thing’ and we are so grateful for all your nice feedback, mentions, retweets, shares and downloads – it’s made it all very worth it knowing we’ve helped raise support and awareness of bowel cancer all over the world.
We would really like to hope that everyone could join together in such global events in the future, as a team we could achieve so much more to help raise support and awareness of another great cause. Roll on Decembeard 2014!
Stay tuned for other hair raising months to come
