GREAT FALLS — Make-A-Wish Montana wants you to put your whiskers to work for kids in their second annual beard contest.
Just go online to www.montanabeardies.com, create a team and put up a picture of your beard. Be sure to share your “Beardies” entry with your friends, family and co-workers, where they will “vote” for your beard by donating to your page.
If you do not have a beard that is OK, because in this contest, you can create one.
“My daughter wants to create a fun beard and get a picture on and really have her school support it,” said Make-A-Wish Montana Board Member Jared Brown.
In a video from Make-A-Wish Montana, world-renowned outdoorsman Tom Oar supports Make-A-Wish Montana and encourages everyone to join in the fun.
The goal is to raise $20,000, which would fund two wishes. In a typical year, Make-A-Wish Montana fulfills about 40 wishes.
In Great Falls, Brown said, there are about 20 volunteers who help organize events and arrange wishes.
Brown added the contest is a good opportunity through which to volunteer and a fun way to bring attention to the kids in need of wishes.
