Purple Beard

In just over three months, I managed to raise over $1000 for the Cure for Life Foundation through CC Survivors and Supporters. As a result of this effort, I dyed my beard purple. The above image is from the morning after the Purple Beard party: the beard is certainly purple. Indeed.

Many thanks to Xtian for allowing the party (and more) to be held at his abode; many thanks to Vikki for everything (and more); many thanks to Al and Julia for dinner and dessert (and more) during the beard bleaching party the evening before the purpleisation party and many, many thanks to Hanna for her rendition of Purple Beard – twas mighty beautiful.

And many, many thanks to all of those who attended the party – your presence was much appreciated and certainly enjoyed.

And more thanks to Paul, Queenie, Cathryn, Hanna, Al & Vikki for the use of the images in the gallery below.

CC Survivors and Supporters is still heading towards raising $10,000 and you can assist in that by helping Kim to finish his first goal.

Purple Beard words by Julia Robertson
I don’t want to see any sorrow.
I never want you to be in any pain.
I only wanted to one time see you laughing.
I only wanted to see you laughing at the Purple beard.

Purple beard, Purple beard.
Purple beard, Purple beard.
Purple beard, Purple beard.

I only wanted to see you loving the Purple beard.

I want to see a cure for brain cancer.
I only wanted to be some kind of friend.
And now I am here in Melbourne.
With my new purple beard.

Purple beard, Purple beard.
Purple beard, Purple beard.
Purple beard, Purple beard.

I only wanted to see you underneath the Purple beard.

Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing.
It’s time we all reach out for something new,
That means you too.
You say you want help out,
But you can’t seem to pick up the challenge.
I think you better do it,
And let me show you to the Purple beard.

Purple beard, Purple beard.
Purple beard, Purple beard.

If you know what I’m singing about up here.
C’mon raise your hand.

Purple beard, Purple beard.

I only want to see a cure, only want to see a cure
