The Art of Charm is proud to announce our strong support for Movember – the global men’s health charity engaging men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) for the 30 days of November. Through the power of the moustache, awareness and funds are raised for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
To show our support, we’re going to be donating a portion of each program sale made in the month of November. And to help spur these sales, we’re offering $1,000 off our weeklong Attraction Arts program if you buy this month!
So if you want to take advantage of this great opportunity (and also help out a worthy cause), shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at 888-413-7177 and I’ll tell you more.

What the heck is Movember?
- WHAT: Movember is the global men’s health charity engaging men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) for the 30 days of November. Through the power of the moustache, awareness and funds are raised for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
- HISTORY: Movember started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003 with two guys who wanted to bring back a past fashion trend – the moustache. That year, 30 guys participated but no money was raised. In 2004, amazed by the fun they had and the conversations that were sparked, four of the 30 original members came together to make their Mo-growing an annual, official charitable endeavor by adding an important cause – prostate cancer. That year, 450 participants raised $43,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. Movember came to the US in 2007, with 2,127 participants raising over $740,000. This year, there will be official Movember campaigns in 21 countries. In 2011, the global campaign saw more than 850,000 people in 14 countries growing and supporting the Mo, raising over $126 million for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. This year, there will be official Movember campaigns in 21 countries…
- WHERE: All over the world! Movember moustache growth can be seen around the globe each November in 21 countries across five continents.
- WHY: One of the biggest obstacles men tackle in regards to general well-being, is a reluctance to discuss health issues they face either with their partner, family or doctor. Movember was born from recognition that a fun and engaging initiative could help encourage men to become more actively involved in their own health. Movember aims to increase awareness and support for men’s health by getting conversations started at a grassroots level, educating men about the health risks they face and raising vital funds for support programs.
How can you support Movember?
The growth of a moustache on an otherwise bare lip sparks both public and private discussion; Mo Bros effectively becoming a walking, talking billboards for men’s health for 30 days, raising funds along the way.
Participation is really easy – men and women register at Movember.com to grow or support a Mo. Men start November 1 clean-shaven and grow their moustache for 30 days, getting friends, family and colleagues to donate to their Mo-growing efforts. Women are very important to the Movember campaign. Mo Sistas get involved in the same way as Mo Bros, except they don’t grow a Mo. They register at Movember.com, start a team, recruit the men in their lives to participate, donate, fundraise, and plan and participate in events.
Once registered at Movember.com, you can also join The Art of Charm’s team at: http://us.movember.com/team/666337 . The team is led by our friend Tory, Art of Charm alumnus and Chief Facial Hair Consultant
Note: If you just want to donate to Movember (instead of growing a mustache) you can also do that on our team page as well (http://us.movember.com/team/666337)
P.S. Remember, the $1,000 discount on the weeklong Attraction Arts program ends on Nov. 30th, so shoot me an email at email@example.com or give me a call at 888-413-7177 to register!
