Despite the moustache making a fashion comeback in recent years, we here in the Think Tank tend to view that particular item of facial hair with the same disgust, suspicion and disdain as any other respectable citizen, but that didn’t stop many of us participating in Movember last year. It’s a month of sponsored tache-cultivating in aid of prostate cancer prevention, research and awareness. As Kelvin remarked on the internet marketing podcast, it’s a great cause with superb marketing, and we’re proud to be part of it yet again.
From the 1st of November we will be letting their hair down. The hair on our upper lip that is. Last year we raised over a thousand pounds for the cause and we’re hoping to improve on that this year. You can track our progress on the SiteVisibility Movember Team page, both in terms of growth and sponsorship. Perhaps you might consider sponsoring us or getting involved yourself, if you’re the type of individual who can cultivate the appropriate fuzz.
There’s less than a fortnight to go until Movember kicks off, and the Brighton chapter launch night is tomorrow at the Mesmerist in Brighton, which is conveniently located just around the corner from our office, a favourite of ours due to a nostalgic music policy and some excellent ales. Growing a moustache, or rather preparing to grow a moustache is thirsty work, so we’ll be there. It’s been a bit chilly on the coast this week, although also gloriously sunny, and we are looking forward to much-needed facial insulation and plenty of funny looks. Join us.
