Well folks, Movember is in the books for 2013 and we had a great month raising awareness and cold hard cash for men’s health issues. In our third year of participating in Movember, we set the fundraising goal pretty high at $5000. I say pretty high, because in the prior two years combined we had raised about $5100.
The team really stepped up to the challenge in the fund raising department. We had some of our usual strong fund raisers along with some new creative ways to raise money. The Project Management Office put on a multi-day bake sale in which your sweet tooth could be satisfied in exchange for a donation to the Movember cause. This bake sale raised a total of $293! Another event was the “Epic Stare” contest. Contestants submitted a photo of themselves sporting a Mo and an epic stare. Here was mine:
Voters cast their votes in the form of cash donations for their photo of choice. This impromptu contest brought in about $65.
All told, we raised about $6600 this year, absolutely crushing our goal! I want to thank all of the Mo-bros and Mo-sistas that participated this year. I especially want to thank all of the folks that made donations.
Thank you very much!
Here is a shot with many of the EWI Movember participants. We have some dudes that can grow some pretty strong ‘staches in 30 days. We also have some that fall in to the “not so much” category, bit their heart is in the right place.
