Have you heard of Movember? It's a month-long event that takes place annually during the month of November that involves growing mustaches, in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives. Call it a campaign, a fundraiser, whatever you want. The point is to get people talking, so more men will get checked, and hopefully prevent serious long-term illness or even death.
SysAid wants to participate and help raise both awareness and money! Last week, all SysAid employees were notified that if they grow their mustaches during the month, SysAid will donate $25.00 per person to the Cancer Society. Personally, I won’t be able to grow my mustache (thank goodness 😉 but I do hope all my male colleagues will feel the peer pressure and humanitarianism, and stop shaving their upper lips!
We want to raise even more money…so we’re opening up the offer to all SysAid customers around the world. Anyone who grows their 'stache and sends us a photo of themselves at the end of Movember, with SysAid running on a screen in the background (so we know you really are a customer), we will donate to the Cancer Society $25.00 in your name as well.
Photos should be posted directly to our Facebook page, or tweeted to us @sysaid (use the hashtag #movember). If you are extremely shy, you may also email the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be sure to make the donations.
Please - don't even think twice, grow those mustaches today!
