27 Jan Movember Madness
Hooray, we are almost two weeks in the hairiest month of the year! Also known as the month where, fashionable stache’s are completing vintage looks full with leather accessories.
Did you ever wonder what Movember is all about and how this epic event started?
Movember is a globally annual event during November. Men around the globe are growing their moustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues. Movember is linked tightly with the fight against prostate cancer. However since 2003 The Movember Foundation has funded over 770 men’s health projects worldwide, from research on prostate cancer to other male cancers and depression in men. Now you know that there is more behind Movember then growing a moustache for prostate cancer buddy. As of this year there is also the Movember Move Challenge, the challenge is to get active 30 MOVEs in 30 days for 30 minutes a day. This new way of fund raising is especially for the ladies and the poor lads who can’t grow a decent moustache. It’s like torn out an unmaintained leather, nobody likes to see that.
Movember is run by The Movember Foundation charity via www.movember.com, with the goal to “Change the face of men’s health.” Started in 2003, by two Australian mates Travis Garone and Luke Slattery, they managed to fiend 30 guys, who were up for the challenge and so the Mo Bros stood up. After 11 successful years the global support for Movember is immense, currently there are over 5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas registered on movember.com around the world.
Imperial Exports is not only a producer of high quality leather accessories. We also find it important to take a moment, realise and think about the terrible diseases known to human beings. To help spread the word a couple of our employees participate by letting their moustaches grow, while sponsored by Imperial Exports. Also Imperial Exports start a contest by liking and sharing this blog through social media accounts. The winners will receive a nice straight razor to use for your first completely clean shave after Movember. The straight razor will come with a shaving brush and a high quality genuine leather folding case to store your grooming goods. To increase your chances to win like, share and comment with a picture of your Movember end result. The lucky winners will be selected randomly and will receive a message on Monday 7th of December.
Gentleman, get your moustache game on and share it with the world and Imperial Exports!!
