Movember 2011 wrap up – saying goodbye to the mustache

5 Dec

Movember has come to a close. It’s wasn’t easy being a lean, mean, mustached machine, but our COO, Chad Braverman, was just that over the course of “Movember”, a movement in which men all over the world let their mustaches grow over the month of November in support of men’s health issues. We asked our fans to sponsor Chad on his quest to change the face of men’s health and, as a company, promised to match the funds raised.

When we spoke to Chad during Movember, he described his burgeoning stache as “incredibly dirty but at the same time beyond manly and somewhat itchy.” Today, that moustache is gone, but the giving spirit of Movember lives on, thanks to all of your generous donations. So far, Movember has raised 174 million in support of such worthy causes that affect men’s health, with a heavy percentage of donated funds going towards fighting prostate cancer. Because of people like Chad, and those who have graciously opened their hearts and wallets to sponsor Chad, we are one step closer to beating some of the world’s most devastating diseases!

Who wore it best?

Movember update #2 – attack of the ‘stache

29 Nov

Friedrich Nietzsche. Salvador Dali. Albert Einstein. Burt Reynolds. What do these men have in common?

A mustache of course.

The ‘stache has gained and waned in popularity, but it has certainly made a positive comeback. Movember is changing the face of men’s health, one moustache at a time. During November each year, thousands of men let their hair down, so to speak, in the US and around the world. Armed with their moustaches and a dream, these men raise vital funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men, by asking friends and family to sponsor them. As a result, Movember has been extremely successful, raising a cool 174 million for men’s health since its infancy.

Many mustached men.

Of course, with great power comes great responsibility, and those taking part in Movember have the great responsibility of choosing what kind of moustache to grow. Doc Johnson’s COO, Chad Braverman, describes his moustache as “incredibly dirty but at the same time beyond manly and somewhat itchy”. However, the possibilities for moustache styles and shapes are almost limitless.

You can sponsor Chad on his official Movember page. Doc Johnson will match every dollar raised by Chad’s Movember Team in the month of November. Please open your hearts and wallets to raise awareness and funds in the fight against cancer. Every dollar counts.

And again, it’s The Doc vs The Chad… what do you think now that Chad’s mo has grown? Is he rivaling the Doc?

During November each year, Movember  is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. Men grow a Mo (moustache) for 30 days to become walking, talking billboards.

With their Mo, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men – so far they’ve raised $174 million dollars in the last 8 years. Funds raised through the Movember US campaign are committed to programs supporting prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives run by Movember and through the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.

Chad is ready for his close-up...

Doc Johnson has always been an advocate of awareness for men’s and women’s health, and Chad Braverman, COO of Doc Johnson, has taken this opportunity to join the Movember movement and raise funds for this worthwhile campaign. “It’s a solemn fact that about 1,500 people die each day in the United States due to cancer. It’s difficult to be aware of that statistic, and not try to take action to lower those numbers.” Chad’s Movember moustache is just one step in the fight against cancer, but every step is valuable.
