Welcome to November, the month where you eat way too much, stress about holiday shopping and oh yeah, elect a President. Ah, but with a simple flick of a wand, we change November into MOVEMBER! Now, Movember is all about one thing – ending prostrate cancer. No idea, what Movember is, here’s the deal, right from the Movember US site…
“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.”
Guys, Dads, Gals, Horses, Big Foot – Anyone, Do What You Can To Help With Movember
Dads now is your time to style that awesome Mo (what us hipsters call a moustache). The idea of Movember is simple and elegant, grow a Mo and raise money for men’s health issues. The great thing about growing a crazy Mo is people will ask you about it, then you can explain you are trying to raise money for men’s health issues and direct them over to your Mo page (all simply setup here). Yes, gals – you can partake in the Mo fun as well!
Gillette Provides A Cool Way To Maximize Your Mo Giving
Here at Dad Does we love when big companies get behind great causes and do good. Every big company claims to be “good”, but we believe actions speak louder than words. Gillette has stepped up and come up with a Facebook App for Movember that is fun, functional and a super easy way to raise more money for men’s health issues!
Check out the Gillette Capture Your Mo’ Facebook app – it is molicious! Every day you use the app to snap a photo of your awesome Mo. Once you have a few photos in, the app can create a time lapse video of your Mo growing into its super awesome form. Need ideas of how to style your Mo? The app has a Library of Mo’ Styles and tips for growing the perfect Mo’.
We have saved the best part of the app for last. For every photo you upload, Gillette will donate $1 to ZERO — The Project to End Prostate Cancer, a great organization which is looking to end prostrate cancer. You simply upload your photos each day and Gillette donates money to end prostrate cancer. In addition, you are getting a cool video of your Mo’ growth, which you can share with friends in your efforts to raise money for Movemeber. A true Win-Win.
Every Craftsmen Needs His Tools – Check Out The Gillette Fusion ProGlide
We don’t want to turn Movember into an ad for anything, it is too important a movement. We just want to mention while you are using the Gillette Capture Your Mo’ app, you might want to check out the Gillette Fusion ProGlide Styler. The ProGlide Styler is a great tool to trim, shave and edge that Mo until you have the exact right look that will wow the ladies…or at least your wife.
Please, Get the Word Out, Make This Movember One to Remember
I know November is a busy month and as parents we all have a ton going on, but please take a few moments to visit the Movember page and see how you can help. Dads, I just read a study that shows that Dads with moustaches are 92% more likely to get a “Best Dad Ever” coffee mug from their kids. Fine, I totally make that up, but you should still take part in Movember in some way and help wipe out prostrate cancer.
