Get Involved


Each year, brave and selfless companies across the business world, from the relatively small to some of the largest global corporations, come together as one and stand side by side, united in their commitment to fine moustachery and changing the face of men’s health.
 
The Movember journey requires dedication and during the month your team members effectively become walking, talking billboards raising awareness for men’s health. But, Movember is also a lot of fun and a great way to bring your team together to share in the experience of growing a Mo; whether you end up with a mighty trucker, a ginger Mo, a handlebar or a lame Mo...
 

Whatever line of work you are in we’d love to welcome you to be part of Generation Mo. If you rock out for the month with a huge Mo and raise £5 or £1000 - it all helps towards achieving our vision; to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.

If you want to get your organisation involved, sign up a team and start recruiting. Should you need any help along your hairy journey, just give us a shout on 0207 952 2060; we have lots of ways we can help you get the most from your Mo growing efforts.

 

 





BP

2012 saw UK Mo Bro Robb Eadie step up and lead the global BP network, setting an internal challenge to encourage maximum participation from offices internationally. The campaign ended with 315 members raising over £73,000.
 
With able support from the internal communications team and access to the global communications platform ‘BP1’, weekly emails were sent to over 83,000 employees from October and throughout the campaign. A number of BP employees who had been affected by prostate or testicular cancer also bravely stepped forward and shared their story with the business.
 
To help raise additional awareness and funds, permission was granted to the whole business by the Internal Audit team to host a ‘Magnum P.I. Day’.

BP’s involvement is a textbook example of how Movember can work at all levels across a large multi-national.


DELOITTE

The Movember community at Deloitte is long established, as old as the campaign in the UK itself and spread largely between two main offices in London and Manchester.  But even after so many years of stalwart support they were still as keen as mustard in 2012 and were crowned inaugural winners of the Big Four vs Magic Circle Network Challenge, accumulating 36% of the £227,709.21 total and ensuring victory for the number crunchers.  

Deloitte are also famous for an annual dip into the dressing up box and, following their dedication to tweed during previous campaigns, they were more akin to extras from the Boogie Nights movie last year - see pic.


NYSE EURONEXT

The growth in participation from this iconic trading brand dovetailed nicely with the growth of Movember as a global charity. NYSE became big players in the inaugural Square Mile Financial Challenge, which, together with The Big Four vs The Magic Circle, saw funds and participation rates increase tenfold.
 
With help from NYSE’s London-based Marketing Manager Jacob Howard, we staged the kind of stunt that could help boost the profile of both our own fundraising mechanics and the involvement of banks in the future as Movember co-founder JC rang in money and moustache trading in NYSE’s Amsterdam office at the beginning of Movember.
 
The 20.36% rise in funds raised (£56,302.81) was indicative of a lively year amongst the financial community who were fervent in their desire to raise money for men’s health.


 


BRITISH SEED HOUSES

BSH MD William Gilbert and his Father, John, a farmer in Wedmore Somerset, created one of the images of Movember 2012 by creating a 120ft by 40ft Mo in a field to promote BSH’s involvement. Unsurprisingly, it was the world’s largest natural moustache to date!
 
The objective was classic Movember; encouraging your staff to raise funds and have fun doing it. The bonus was that BSH were able to produce a very strong visual image to promote the launch of Movember 2012 through their unique industry expertise.
 
A healthy amount of local/national media (including The Daily Mail, BBC and trade media publications) picked up on the picture and British Seed Houses raised an impressive £3.5k for men’s health. As an incentive to staff, BSH also rewarded their company’s most impressive moustache with an all-expenses paid trip to New Zealand!
