Beard vs Beans has raised over $45,000.00 since August 2017!

100% of our proceeds directly benefit the Alzheimer's Association of San Antonio and South Texas. 

The Beard vs Beans events were created by fun and loving brotherly rivalry, in hopes to raise as much awareness and donations for the Alzheimer's Association®!


On June 12, 2017 Matthew Skinner aka Beard (The little big brother), created his first donation page with the Alzheimer's Association and made a spontaneous Facebook post forcing his brother Miguel Martinez aka Beans (The big little brother), to eat beans, his most hated food. Sounds simple, but what Matthew didn't expect was that his brother Miguel Martinez would soon be creating a donation page with the Alzheimer's association as well. Due to his growing hate for beans, Miguel retaliated with a challenge of his own forcing Matthew to shave his beard.


If Matthew (Beard) raised more than Miguel (Beans), Miguel would have to eat beans. If Miguel raised more donations than Matthew, Matthew would have to shave his Beard. And that is how Beard vs Beans was accidentally created by brotherly shenanigans. 

Since Beard vs Beans Started the Stats are Beans 3, Beard 0.
