Movember has just begun, so guys,  its time to stop shaving! Show your support for mens’ health by growing a fine stache’ and joining the Movember movement. Come celebrate the stache’ at our upcoming party:

Enjoy mustache theme cocktails, crafts, photo booth & raffle. Come early for a goodie bag!

What is all this Movember talk, and how did mustaches gain so much popularity as of late? No, its not just some hipster/steampunk revolt against shaving, it just may have all started with the advent of the Movember campaign.

Movember was created in Melbourne, Australia and I first heard about it on a trip there during November 2006. My husband and I were doing a “river sledging” trip (completely awesome, you’ve gotta try it next time you are in NZ) and most of our guides were rocking mustaches and high-fiving about “Movember”. They explained the cause and we were happy to donate to their ‘mo-fund’. Now, 5 years later its reached global proportions and is raising Millions in funds while spreading awareness of these important health issues to the masses.

Mo-sistas can get involved too! Encourage those bros in your life to get checked up and grow a manly stache’ while they’re at it!

Here is a little bit more about how all those donations are helping real men:
