November, let’s call it “Movember” is almost here and once again is positioned to be the hairiest and most enjoyable month of year thanks to the Movember Foundation and it’s backers. The Movember Foundation is one of the largest and most giving global men’s health charities. They set the standard for creating and investing in programs to call attention to prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity in men. For November 2015, they are once again partnering up with key businesses and lifestyle partners to tackle some serious subjects for men across the country and to have a little fun with “Movember.”
For more than a decade, the Movember Foundation has raised more than $650 million and funded more than 1,000 world-class programs in 21 countries around the world. All with the help of men growing a mustache. During Movember, men are asked not only to grow a mustache, but to get active with the Movember Foundation and raise money to make a difference.
“We are very excited to work with an amazing group of returning and new partners for this year’s Movember campaign,” states Mark Hedstrom, Country Director at Movember U.S. “We are proud to collaborate with great companies who are passionate about raising funds and awareness for men’s health. With our partners’ backing and the commitment of millions of supporters, the Movember Foundation can continue our vital year-round work to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives.”
Key partners this year with a tech angle include Harry’s, Barbasol and Birchbox Man. Harry’s is once again the official razor partner for the Movember Foundation in the US and Canada. They are offering a limited edition razor again to men who are shaving to celebrate the commitment and cause of Movember in hope that they will grow a mustache throughout Movember. Harry’s and the Movember Foundation will reward those who have signed up on Movember.com and have raised $25 in donations by October 25th, 2015, all while supplies last. This commemorative razor will be available on Harry’s website with $5 from each sale going to the cause.
Barbasol is also participating in the festivities as an official partner and they are making Movember part of their promotional campaign with the Blu-ray and DVD release of Jurassic World. There is a chance to win an Ultimate Home Theater System with Mo Bros and mo Sistas getting extra chances to win.

Birchbox man subscribers will receive a nice assortment of essentials for the trim of a Movember mustache. They will also be donating $25,000 to the Movember Foundation, $4 for every box sold.
