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 the Mo family. 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, register 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.
Once again the Mo Bros & Mo Sistas at Deloitte raised the bar both in the UK and across the Mo growing world. The team in the UK put forward an academy award style performance in their video entry to the MOSCARS; as well as hosting a number of internal activities. One of Movember’s biggest networks of Mo’s, with 1139 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas, they continue to embrace the true Mo spirit across all departments and together raised £236,593.
“The partnership between Deloitte and Movember is a notable example of what can be achieved through collaboration. Movember organised a shave-down in Deloitte offices and we provided country gentlemen, video equipment and moustaches in desperate need of a trim. The Movember team were great fun to work with and put in some strong acting performances in our video entry to the MOSCARS awards – a global competition run by Movember. We will be back – bigger and more luxuriant - next year.” Stephen Adshead, Director and Chief Mo Bro (Deloitte UK)
A number of teams across various Barclays departments have supported Movember in recent years. Their 2011 rollout saw the company emerge as one of Movember's highest fundraisers with a far reaching network of fundraising teams. Barclays selected two ‘Movember Champions’ to lead the charge internally, one spearheading over 800 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas within their London headquarters, the other a 200 strong team in Manchester. Some friendly Mo rivalry motivated both teams to get more involved, competing for the most creative campaign rollout and together the company raised £221,578.
Internal fundraising initiatives included: a Moscars video entry, a moustache inspired raffle, bake sale and a MOMA breakfast session where Mo supporters were invited to come together mid month and swap stories and photos of their Mo’s.
The Bristol-based film and television animation company famous for Morph, Wallace & Gromit and the recent Pirates movie, are long time supporters of Movember. In addition to raising vital funds for men’s health, Aardman created a ‘Morph with a Mo’ that provided local interest and press coverage and raised money at an auction by the Bristol Mo growing community. They also had their own shave-down with our local male grooming partner Bespoke Male Grooming in Bristol.
This renowned engineering company are responsible for the creation of London’s new iconic Shard building. Their involvement has grown from the enthusiasm of one passionate Mo Bro of six years to a multinational network that includes 11 teams from offices in the UK, US, South Africa and Australia. During 2011, activity included the development of their network and a Mo-trimming session at their London offices attended by over fifty staff. Together, they raised £43,932.
This Leeds based digital marketing agency produced an outstanding creative concept ‘Gallery of Mo’, using art to raise awareness of Movember and increase participation amongst Mo Sistas. The winners of the 2011 Contagious & Movember Creative Competition invited entries that captured "The Joy of Growing a Moustache" and twentysix created an experience that caught the imagination of the creative community.
"Gallery of Mo" offered the community one minute of illustrator time per pound donated with 100% of the money going directly to Movember. This ingenious concept engaged their industry to the tune of over £5000 raised for men's health.
