What a Difference a Moustache Can Make!

Posted on December 16, 2011 by 1 Comment

As part of the global #Movember campaign WE teams grew staches and raised more than $6,000.

Movember is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health. Once registered at www.movember.com, “Mo Bros” start clean shaven and for the rest of the month shape, grow and groom a moustache. Thus becoming walking billboards by prompting conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health and raising funds to fight cancer.

Three WE teams competed against each other to receive an extra $500 donation from the WE Citizenship team to benefit the charities supported by their team.

Who won? Well, all of the mustache growing “musketeers” are winners for contributing to such an important cause, but Team EMEA won the $500 donation from WE Citizenship. Here are the teams:

WE-Movember Team EMEA

Raised $2, 935 (incl. WE’s $500) for The Prostate Cancer Charity and The Institute of Cancer Research



WE- Movember Team USA

Raised $1, 693 for Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, The Lance Armstrong Foundation



WE-Movember Team APAC

Raised $1,389 for Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, The Lance Armstrong Foundation






In addition, several individual employees grew facial hair for this important cause – check out this proud display of staches in our WE Portland office.

P.S.:  Did you know that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime? (More facts about men’s health here.
