This mustache trend, I tell ya…they’re everywhere. On drinkware, stickers, bandaids, removable tattoos…you name it. But for those who participate in ‘Movember’ during the month of November, it’s not only about the novelties, but the mission behind the cause.
What exactly is Movember?
Movember is responsible for the sprouting of mustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
The fearless leader of our team, Jim Pike, has been involved over the last few years. At first he was just a mustache grower, then in the last two years he has served on the local organizing committee.
How/why did you get involved, we asked?
“My uncle has battled prostrate cancer, so when I heard about a fun way to raise awareness for men’s health, do some fundraising and have fun, I thought it was a great cause.”
As a local promotional products and screen printing company, we are proud to be involved on that level as well. Providing koozies, tee shirts, mustache sweatshirts, stickers, coasters, glasses are ways that we extend our show of support for the organization and for the local chapter. Distinct Images doesn’t have any direct event involvement besides fielding a manly group of mustached men and being supportive to the cause! It has lead to meeting new people, business prospects and other mustaches.
With just a month away until it all begins again, we’re excited to get back in the game and Jim is excited to get back to growing that ‘stache!And Keep Promoting!
