Thanks to the Movember movement, the moustache is now a symbol to raise awareness of men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
A global initiative, Movember asks participating men to grow a moustache starting on November 1st and keep them until the end of the month. During that time, Mo Bros (as participants are known), and the Mo Sistas who support them, raise funds to be donated to worthy programs like the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. Last year, Movember.com reports that $7.5 million was raised in the US alone. And this year they’re hoping for even more.
Enter Dan Fontaine. Thanks to him it is Movember at Colonial Volkswagen. The E-Commerce Director here at Colonial Automotive Group is doing his part to muster Movember money in 2011. As part of Team #SWAG, Dan’s goal is to raise $500 – and with your help, he can do it.
Plus, as an added bonus, Colonial Volkswagen has generously pledged to match donations to Dan up to $500! So visit Dan’s MoBro page and make a donation today – it’ll be doubled at the end of the month! If nothing else, you’re supporting a man brave enough to grow The Fu.
