Raymond Whitsel is a good man with a big heart and a great beard! Beards Against Drugs is an event on Oct. 28 in Dayton Ohio that has been put together by Raymond, who also owns Synful Beard Oil and Balms. The event is to benefit Nova Behavioral Health and Brigid's Path, but charities that deal with drug and or substance abuse from newborns to adults. Drug abuse is something many of us have first hand experience with, either dealing with a loved one or going through their own personal issues.
In less than six months, nearly 400 people in Montgomery County, Ohio, have died from an overdose.
“We’re on a pace to have 800 people die this year due to overdose in our county,” Sheriff Phil Plummer told NBC News. “Per capita, we’re number one in the nation in overdose deaths.”
The Columbus Dispatch reports the rate of neonatal abstinence syndrome increased to 159 per 10,000 live births in 2015, compared with 19 such hospitalizations for every 10,000 live births a decade earlier.
The condition involves withdrawal from drug addiction by newborns born to mothers who used drugs while pregnant. It can cause breathing problems, seizures, tremors and excessive crying.
I will be the emcee of this event and I hope you can come out and participate in what is going to be a fantastic event. There will be many familiar faces in attendance. The list of categories is below...
