While this is unrelated to consumer products, I thought it was an excellent fundraiser and a good cause for some ink on my blog.
For those of you who don’t know what Movember is – it is a fundraiser for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. It is a pretty creative and fun fundraiser, where men grow their “mo’s”—Aussie slang for mustache—to raise funds and prostate-cancer awareness on behalf of the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Throughout Movember, guys—or Mo Bros—grow their mustaches, while raising awareness and money for the fight against prostate cancer. At the end of the month, these Mo Bros gather at special gala parties throughout the U.S. to compare mustaches and battle it out for Man of Movember!
I must say this is a very creative fundraiser. Not only do you raise money, but there is an outward sign of what you are doing. This could certainly help the fundraising efforts when friends, family and co-workers ask you what is with that Mo? So… Dominic (a former co-worker and friend of mine), I want to see some pictures this year!
