Talking To Walls: Beard Races For Charity

Happy Novembeard! Yeah, okay, it's not a real holiday but it is notable. East coast rockers Talking to Walls are growing beards!

Three fourths of the band, Brian Kelly who is supporting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Nat Webb who is supporting the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America and Matt Miklos who is supporting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society are in the mist of a beard race.

How did all of this come about? Well, Miklos who normally sports a beard, set about trying to convince smooth as a baby's bottom Webb to grow a beard while on tour this past summer. Apparently, Miklos wore him down and it was decided that if you're going to grow a beard, it might as well be done for charity! So, November 1, the three aforementioned members of Talking to Walls shaved, started sprouting and launched a website to chronicle it all. Fans can vote on the band members' beards and submit their own beards which can also be voted on. The bands votes are submitted as online donations. Donations will also be accepted at shows.

100% of all donations will go to the charity of the band member that wins. There will be prizes for fans as well.

Voting opened Monday, November 15th and runs through midnight, Tuesday, November 30th. So, head on over to the Novembeard site, join in on the fun and help out a charity in the process.
