I was driving in Portland when I damn near crashed, whipped around and followed and then cornered the man on a bike with a pink beard and hair. I am SO glad I did! 


I approached Mr. Pink Beard (Stephen Betters) and asked if I could take his picture. He said,

I get that a lot.


I bet he does. First the pink beard I thought, breast cancer! He actually has a pink beard because he lost a bet. But he wasn't just going to go through with the bet, but take it to a whole level called...

Lemonade For Kids


He said that if his Facebook page got 500 likes, he would donate 500 dollars to the Barbara Bush Children's hospital...that was in 2014.

He has not only donated 500 dollars, but has started a charity and now finds himself doing this pretty much full time (he's a retired postal worker and Army vet).

I had just a few minutes in a credit union parking lot, but I couldn't be happier I chased down the man who lost a bet and turned it into helping kids.

I see a future guest in our studio...
