Grow a Mo to Support Your Bros
Another fateful Movember is drawing to a close. I’m not sure if I will be sad or slightly relieved to see those moustaches shaved off. That being said, we had another very successful year here at Flaman. Many of our staff grew moustaches in support of Movember, and, with $100 per moustache donated by the company, we raised $11,000. Great job everyone!
Movember is all about raising awareness of men’s health issues. Men seem to be more reluctant to talk about health-related topics such as getting a yearly physical exam at their doctors or getting a prostate exam. But these are important tests that can detect cancer and other diseases early, which will mean a better chance of recovery.
The guys at Flaman use Movemeber as an opportunity to grow their best moustache and compete with their fellow co-workers. Our founder, Frank Flaman, even participated and grew himself a moustache as well. I have to say, my favorite moustache was “grown” by Zach Seely. The reason I use quotations around the word “grown” is because he decided to draw a moustache and goatee on his face in Sharpie. Now that’s commitment to the cause!
Last year we did things a little differently and collected donations from family, friends and even customers. We surpassed last year’s donation of $10,000. This year we had 110 employees participate. Our goal next year is to bump it up by another $1,000 and donate $12,000. I know we can do it because the employees here at Flaman are awesome and have impressive moustache-growing abilities.
