Movember is here! Movember is here!

Leaves have started to turn, Baseball has wound down, and my upper lip has started to twitch. Movember first is right around the corner.

What started as a bit of a joke has become a worldwide effort to teach everyone about “dude cancer.” Guys grow, friends and family donate, and we all talk a bit about men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

So how, exactly, does this work?

Once you’re in, you…

  1. Wake up on Movember 1st and shave clean
  2. Don’t shave the mustache, don’t grow a beard, and don’t connect to the ‘burns
  3. Tell everyone who asks that you’re doing this for the dudes

Last year the 1.9M “Mo Bros and Mo Sistas” around the world collected over $126M (USD). Pivotal along with a group of clients and friends, raised over $40,000 of that.

Things are just getting ramped up and already the leaderboard has crossed $3.5M.

So it’s time for all of us to get growing!
