"Mustaching is important work,” joked Wpromote’s Vice President of Client Services, Michael Block, adding, on a more serious note, “made all the more important when it's associated with raising money for prostate cancer research."
El Segundo, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) December 09, 2010
Four-time Inc. 500 company and #1 search marketing firm, Wpromote, is proud to announce raising over $2300, as well as much hype and awareness, for prostate cancer research through the sponsored Movember team “The Hair Up There.” For those of you wondering why many males were sporting a mustache in the month of November, it was in support of Movember: an annual month-long event involving the growing of mustaches in order to increase awareness and funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and depression.
“The turn out for this year’s Movember team was unprecedented. Our team of 20+ dynamic mustached individuals raised over $2300, which in this economy, is no small task” said Mike Stone, VP of Sales & Strategy for Wpromote. Wpromote’s Movember team, “The Hair Up There” raised money by “mustaching”, a term coined by the team which represents the act of showcasing ones mustache, while discussing the Movember movement, to close friends and family members. Staying true to the core of Wpromote’s services, team “The Hair Up There” also increased awareness through utilizing social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and writing blog posts about the initiative. They also created an official Movember™ webpage, which highlighted team members, included a custom campaign logo, and allowed for online donations to be made. ValueClick Media sponsored the team wrap party, which was held at the Tattle Tale Room in Culver City, CA.
"Mustaching is important work,” joked Wpromote’s Vice President of Client Services, Michael Block, adding, on a more serious note, “made all the more important when it's associated with raising money for prostate cancer research. I'm glad that I have the mustache genes to have been able to participate and gladder that my friends had the donating genes to have been able to chip in for the cause." As 2011 approaches, Wpromote looks forward to giving back to local charities, as well as getting employees involved in other philanthropic projects.
