Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men's health by growing a moustache . The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men's health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.
"I participated in Movember on my own last year and had so much fun that I started campaigning for employees here to grow moustaches this time around," said Tony DeFrank, California Car Cover's Executive Director and proudest moustache owner. "In fact, our company will be matching all funds raised through our website to support Movember."
"It is entertaining to walk around our office and see quite a few fellow employees growing some moustaches, " added DeFrank. the women in our office are not sure what to think, but they know it is for a good cause."
Money raised during Movember benefits the LIVESTRONG Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
Additionally, anyone that makes a donation of over $5.00 will receive some Golden Shine car care decals and a limited edition moustache key chain made of actual car cover material. The company is also offering a 5% discount during the month of November to any gentleman with a moustache that makes a purchase at its retail store. More details are available online.
