Big heart Bearded offer toys for hospitalized children.
The Bearded Villains French Chapter, far from being bearded villains as seems to indicate their name wish to change the image of the men who wear the beard and show, through their charitable association “Les Compagnons du Lys” They have heart and values of tolerance, respect and altruism.
Sensitized by the children fighting against cancer in the pediatric unit of Oscar Lambret hospital in Lille, our bearded guys raised funds via an online kit, building on their reputation on social networks and then collecting toys as gifts they resold between 1 and 2 euros at the market of Christmas of Marquette in Ostrevant (59).
Thanks to this mobilization and the generosity of all, they have acquired board and board games as well as new headphones to allow hospitalized children to spend more convivial and joyful days and thus help them to cross these sometimes painful moments especially during these end-of-year periods.
The toys were handed over to the Oscar Lambret Hospital on 16 December in the presence of the deputy secretary of the association, an active member and the head of the pediatric unit, communication officers and “Donors” service. The toys will be quickly available to children so they can enjoy it to the fullest.
The Bearded Villains French Chapter will meet at their annual meeting in Paris on 7 and 8 January. They will again lead beautiful actions among which haircuts and free beard trim as well as distributions of clothes and hygiene kits to the most disadvantaged.
