There are two things that Poinsters will always rally around: raising funds and awareness for a great cause, and thinking up creative ways to tease our coworkers about their appearance. So it comes as no surprise that Points’ participation in Movember this year was our most successful yet.
Last year, Points raised an impressive $4,200 to fund projects that improve the lives of men dealing with prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health issues. This year, our team of moustache growers set the bar even higher, with a team goal of raising $5,000. Did we achieve it? We MO-st certainly did, raising a total of $5,335 in ‘stache cash for the Movember Foundation.
Our team of 15 Mo Bros drummed up donations by posting photos to Points’ official Movember page, pushing the Friday beer cart around the office to show off their goofy scraggly ugly gentlemanly ‘staches, and organizing a raffle with all proceeds going to the cause. At the end of the month, we held a company-wide vote to crown our own Mr. Movember.
Second runner up: Pierre & Cliff (tie)
First runner up: MO team captain Gopal
Points’ Mr. Movember 2014: Jeff!
