I still enjoy seeing what the Duck Dynasty family is up to! With that, Jase shaved his beard in honor of his daughter’s charity, Mia Moo, which raises funds and awareness to help children and their families deal with cleft lips and palates.
Them boys know a thing or two I suppose about growing beards. Even going as far as to create videos on the process, lol.
Missy Robertson, Jase’s wife, announced last week on Facebook that her husband will be shaving off the hair AND the beard if they managed to raise $100,000 for Mia’s charity. They didn’t quite hit their mark but being the good sports that they are and for everyone involved they decided to shave it all off anyway! Hoping it would help raise more awareness.
“I guess you could say I’m a little happy,” Robertson’s wife wrote on Facebook.
When he looked in the mirror, Robertson said, “I was shocked.”
You can see everyone else’s surprise, too, at about the 13-minute mark in the video below.
Jase has previously admitted that becoming the father of a girl with a cleft palate forced him to wear his heart on his sleeve — something he had never done before:
“I was never an emotional guy until I had a daughter who had problems. When you hand your daughter off to some doctors and you know they’re going to cut on her, that’s tough. I lost it. So much for not being emotional.”
The Mia Moo Foundation‘s mission statement:
Here at the Mia Moo Fund, our desire is to make sure that each and every child born with a cleft lip or palate receives the best possible medical care, regardless of his or her financial situation. Ultimately, we desire to bring children throughout the country endless support and dedicated love through your donations, and more.
We won’t rest until we know that each child, parent, sibling, and friend is comforted and informed about the causes and treatments of cleft lip/cleft palate. This information can help those affected to prepare themselves and others throughout each step of the cleft management process.
Our purpose is to help each child know and understand that he or she has a divine and worthwhile purpose in this life, and we fully believe that our resources can help bring these purposes to light.
