Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
ShaveMOB, a Denver-based start-up promising the lowest prices on shaving razors for men and women, announced a campaign designed to promote awareness of Movember by donating a portion of “Moustache Monocle” and razor sales to the cause.
Zach Randall, ShaveMOB CEO, said "ShaveMOB's Movember Moustache Monocle program arose because we knew a number of people who either could not or would not grow facial hair but still wanted to show their support of this worthy cause. Thanks to ShaveMOB, you can carry the rugged look of a moustache without the hassle of a scratchy upper lip. These handcrafted wooden beauties will be offered for $5, and then we’re passing 50% of the proceeds to the Movember Foundation. ShaveMOB is also donating a portion of every razor sale in November to Rocky Mountain Cancer Assistance (RMCA), a non-profit organization helping cancer survivors and patients battling this disease."
So far the program is off to a great start, with the cheeky wooden moustaches being very well received. Customers can add the moustaches to their orders at ShaveMOB.com to show their support.
"The Movember Moustache Monocle idea fit ShaveMOB really well. We stand for the benefits that our customers have come to realize: saving money, time, and reducing your environmental impact. But customer or not, we’re also about making a stand for the benefit of humanity. Joining the fight against prostate cancer is one of them. We are hopeful we can help make an impact," Randall noted.
After a lengthy selection process, ShaveMOB chose to partner with RMCA as the company felt it could drive the most measurable impact at the local level. Grace Castellanos, Executive Director of the Colorado-based non-profit, said “RMCA is very excited about the prospect of partnering with ShaveMOB. Since 2000, we’ve provided over $3 million in financial assistance to more than 5,000 cancer survivors, and programs like this will help continue our mission. ShaveMOB's Pink Razors for Pink Ribbons breast cancer campaign in October was a success and I am excited to see what the rest of November brings.”
The company is also offering bloggers the opportunity to review ShaveMOB razors and also feature the “Movember Moustache Monocle” donation effort.
