Here’s an excuse to grow a sweet Mo (Australian slang for mustache), party, and raise some money for a great charity.
Canadian Club whisky is teaming up with the Movember Foundation to raise awareness and money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation by having guys grow a Mo throughout the month of November. To be a Mo Bro, just start clean shaven on the 1st, then let your upper lip hair go wild as you collect donations throughout the month. Your girl can get involved too, not by foregoing her regular waxing, but by being a Mo Sista and helping to recruit Bros to grow Mos.
CC will be holding “Damn Right” events around the country, featuring the official drink of Movember, the Burgundy (recipe below), culminating with huge parties in NY, LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago and Aspen for Mo Bros who raise more than $100 for prostate cancer.
Since Movember’s inception in 2003, almost 200,000 guys around the world have sported a Mo, and more than $29 million has been raised globally for prostate cancer research – including $740,568 raised in the United States last year. In 2008, Movember is looking for Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to raise $2.6 million. Which is a boatload of Mos.
To get your Mo on and raise some money for prostate cancer research, register at www.movember.com. You can go it alone, or start a Mo team, then create a profile to showcase how your Mo-growing is going. Me? I’m going old-school handle bar.
