Need a beard but don't know how to grow one? Fancy some bedding for your white mice? Then you need Jim Moginie's bum fluff.

The Midnight Oil guitarist / keyboard player has shaved off his beard and is selling it on eBay but it is all for a good cause. Jim is raising money for the Australia Conservation Foundation.

Jim tells Undercover News "Let's face it after seven months of touring the beard has to be worth a bit. I guess you could call this a litmus test to show what the world has become. Rather than throw it away I felt I could do my bit for a worthy cause and the money raised will be donated to the Australian Conservation Foundation so bring on those bids."

The beard came off after the Oils final gig at their show in Coolangatta recently. It is being kept under lock and key in stay fresh bags awaiting its new owner. The moustache bit is in one bag, and the beard is in another.

So get to it Oils fans. The current bid for the beard is a pissy $20.50. You can do better than that. Bid now and bid high. The ACF will appreciate it. Bidding is open until December 3 at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=924571882
