Movember is here, and it’s time to shave for a cause. Support prostate cancer awareness by growing a mustache – starting now! If you can’t sport a ‘stache, you can support the cause by spreading the word or making a donation.
The MoDairy campaign supports the Movember Foundation, a national organization committed to raising awareness of men’s health issues including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. The foundation uses the mustache as a symbol and suggests men grow mustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues.
“We need to continue to emphasize men’s health issues such as prostate cancer throughout our industry,” says Amy Throndsen with Advanced Comfort Technology/DCC Waterbeds, sponsor of the MoDairy campaign. Many of us know of someone we care about that has been impacted by these health issues, and we need to bond together to raise awareness.”
MoDairy will once again be hosting the ‘Show Us Your ‘Stache’ contest to start conversations about men’s health. If you have facial hair, consider shaving and growing a new mustache throughout November. Post pictures of your mustache at www.facebook.com/MoDairy. For every image posted, MoDairy will donate $5 to the Movember Foundation. The person featured photo with the most likes at the end of Movember will win his or her choice of a 20- by 20-inch Steel Cow print.
