North Selling Battle Beard Apparel
For the past three years, Westerville North High
School history teacher Dr. Ben Hartnell has organized the sale of
what he calls “beardly” apparel - t-shirts with a beard theme. (Dr.
Hartnell, for those who don't know him, sports a rather large and
impressive red beard.) In 2011, North sold “Fear the Beard” shirts.
In 2012, it was “Elect the Beard” shirts. Last year, the theme was
“Reinbeard” shirts. To date, over $10,000 has been raised through
the sale of these shirts, and the profits have been donated to
Caring & Sharing, an organization that provides food, clothing and
toys for Westerville-area families in need.
This year, Dr. Hartnell’s Advisory chose to support
three causes with the sale of camouflage and hunter green “beardly”
apparel: the American Cancer Society, the Wounded Warriors Project,
and Caring & Sharing. The front features the now iconic orange beard
logo and the words, “BATTLE BEARD”. The back contains the quote,
“Sometimes the strongest people in the morning are the people who
cried all night.” For $6 dollars more, buyers have the option
of personalizing their apparel in honor of someone fighting (or lost
to) cancer; someone wounded (or lost to) war; or someone going
through a battle of their own. This feature will say, “I wear my
Battle Beard For ___________.”
Sale of the t-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, crewneck
sweatshirts, and hoodies began Wednesday, November 5 and lasts until
Thursday, November 20. Profits raised will be donated in the name of
Westerville City Schools to the American Cancer Society, the Wounded
Warriors Project, and Caring & Sharing. Those interested in buying
“beardly” apparel should visit Westerville North’s website,
City School’s website,
