Do you hear that? Yes that’s right, men around the world who are parting with their mustaches are weeping. Movember is now over but here at Intelex we have reason to cheer.
Last year about 12 Intelexians united to grow mustaches for the month of November to help raise money for men’s health awareness. During that run we raised $2,500, a sum Intelex President and CEO Mark Jaine matched for a total of $5,000.
This year the men at Intelex were ready to beat last year’s record and take the challenge to another level. That’s right, the ‘Mo Bros’ worked hard to gain every donation and with about 24 members this year we were ready with mustache combs in hand. Between leveraging Internet memes and internal campaigning, we used everything from cats to boots (no, not puss and boots) to boost awareness of our campaign. Every creative idea and action helped.
We beat last year’s record by almost 2.5 times. We raised $6,038, and with Mark’s gracious offer to match all donations we raised a combined total of $12,076 to support awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.
From all the Mo Bros and Sistas, thank you all for your help, generosity and promotion of Men’s health awareness. Great Success!
Till next year, this is Mo Bro Captain Avi, signing out.
