Man Cave: Movember

Beer / November 3, 2016 / No Comments.

giphyFor those of you who actually have the ability to grow a mustache, November is for you. In 2003, two Australian buddies, Travis Garone and Luke Slattery, decided to was high time for the mustache to make a comeback. Inspired by a mutual friend’s mother who was fundraising for breast cancer at the time, the duo decided to use their love of mustaches for a good cause. And thus the first Movember was born. They ruled that every participant would pay $10 and all the proceeds went to prostate cancer research. That first year, Garone and Slattery were only able to wrangle up 30 fellas to participate, but the cause has taken off since.

Today there are Movember campaigns in 21 different countries and the cause as raised over $730 million for men’s health partnerships.

There is no doubt that Movember is an effective and unique way to promote support for men’s health issues. But what about those of us who want to help but still can’t seem to break out of our high school “dirt-stache” phase? We’ve found the solution:

We call it the “stout ‘stache.” Just get a nice frothy pint of your favorite stout, take a sip and let the foam-stache rage. It may not be permanent, but if it gets you involved with a great cause, then there’s no need to talk about technicalities.

Do your part to help “change the face of men’s health,” with real or beer ‘stache.
