Moustache Fundraiser.

Moustache + November = Movember.
I had someone order some mustache cups from my store and they informed me that it is for a MOVEMBER Fundraiser party. I didn't know what it was, but if you have heard of "No shave November" its kinda like that but better - much better!

(taken from their website) Men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery.  Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party (where donations are recieved).

Turns out they have raised a lot of money and their website does a great job in disclosing where money goes and how it is spent. They support LIVESTRONG, and PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION.

As a public health professional and a mustache supplier, I'm happy to be a part of it. Men's health is less often talked about and this is such a creative fun way to bring awareness. If only I would have known sooner....oh, the possibilities!
