Movember 2013 is officially upon us! Naked upper lips will no longer plague the men of Malouf; it is time to unleash The Power of The Mo. This is a great opportunity for us to give back to the community while showcasing the manliness of the office in the form of moustaches. We would like to encourage you to get involved by joining the Malouf team on movember.com and following #maloufmovember.
Movember is a global men’s health charity that “aims to change the face of men’s health through the power of the moustache,” according to their website movember.com. Throughout the month of November, men are encouraged to grow and women to support moustaches (the Mo). These moustaches can be used as a talking point to raise awareness about and funds for men’s health, particularly prostate and testicular cancer. The goals of Movember are to educate men about the health risks they face, encourage men to get screened, stay mentally healthy, raise money for research, and teach men how to live with and beyond cancer or mental illness.
We kicked off our campaign with a hot towel and straight edge shave for the whole team of Mo Bros. The women of the office could choose proxy moustache growers, so those stand-in growers also added to the Malouf Mo Bros. Revive Salon and Spa did a great job making the men baby smooth.
Malouf will host an auction on November 22 which will include Malouf items as well as other products donated from businesses around the valley. All proceeds from that auction will go towards Movember. There will be multiple categories for Mo growers to win prizes, including the worst Mo, the most creative Mo, and prizes for all the women who had to support their husbands growing a Mo. (Let’s be honest, it’s a much bigger sacrifice for the women.) Winners will also be chosen from pictures posted to Malouf’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, and tagged with #maloufmovember. Those winners will receive a set of our incredibly popular bamboo sheets.
Get involved by joining the Malouf Movember team, following #maloufmovember, and uploading your Mo to Malouf’s Facebook (Malouf Fine Linens), Instagram (bymalouf) or Twitter (By_Malouf).
