How Much Difference Does ‘Movember’ Make?

Look at this fucking hipster

Look at this freaking (cancer-free) hipster…

TIME says PR’s favorite November event is “(slowly) getting men to pay attention to their health“. Pardon us while we smoke a cigarette, eat a chili dog, drink a beer and a Coke at the same time and ponder that statement.

British Woman Grows Her Own ‘Stache for ‘Movember’

Meet Sarah. She’s (literally) letting it all grow out for Movember, and she’s pretty chill about it. Here she is going under the razor to raise awareness (and money) for Polysistic Ovary syndrome, or the reason she can do this in the first place:

Of course, every brand and agency everywhere is all over Movember. Yet Sarah seems a little braver than most, doesn’t she?

PitchEngine Founder to Use Social Media Chops to Sweep Mustache Contest

Jason Kintzler, founder of social media press release service PitchEngine, is hoping to mop up the competition with his Wyoming Horseshoe (I just made that up) in the Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American this year.

Kintzler and his furry friend are among 19 finalists in the award issued by the American Mustache Institute, also organizers of “Movember.”

The Institute, contest, and the month of moustachery  raise awareness for men’s cancers, with proceed going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG foundation.

The return of the ‘stache is the brainchild of several former Fleishman-Hillard execs who now make up Elasticity, a digital and social media agency based in Fleishman’s hometown of St. Louis.

Kintzler’s social chops, along with his poll position on the AMI site should help him defeat all comers.
