Well, it’s been a crazy year—what can I say? Movember 2016 approaches and it dawns on me that I never did a post recapping 2015’s fundraising efforts. Which is a shame, because 2015 was historic for the ol’ Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management. 2015 was the year we hit the secret goal I set for these teams years ago, never really sure we could ever do it, but hoping we one day could… we crested $100,000 in fundraising to help combat men’s cancer!

The 2014 mustache season was my sixth year participating in the cancer-fighting, mustache growing fundraiser Movember. Over the past five years, my small effort with a single teammate has become a family operation with my brother, father, and sister all participating and with great support from my wife and my mom—not to mention the over 100 teammates we’ve all had within the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management network over the past half-decade. It’s been a helluva ride! Continue Reading “Long overdue Movember 2014 recap”
Each and every year, the men and women of the Movember mustache-growing conglomerate network, The Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management, have improved our effort, increasing the amount of money raised to help raise awareness about men’s health and to combat men’s cancer. This year, even though the total size of our network was smaller (67 members instead of last year’s 80), our three teams—the Northwest, Midwest, and Far East chapters—poured in an insane effort and raised…

In 2011, the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management raised an astounding $20,700. I hoped we could rise as high in the fundraising this year, but was very skeptical. I mean, last year, we aimed for $10K and somehow made it to $20K. I didn’t think we could be that lucky two years in a row.
Of course, luck had nothing to do with it. Between our 80 members and all of ours/their generous and supportive friends and family, we raised a grand total of $24,434! Incredible. Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2012: Days 28, 29, 30, and the end of the month Mo recap and wrap up”

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, we’re a third of the way through Movember! Ten days in and 20 to go, and the Ministry of Mustache Growth and Management is killing it! So far, 44 of our 76 members have received donations. That’s 57 percent of the team and that percentage can only go up. The fact that 44 members have received donations is exactly why we’re sitting at a total of $5,256 in donations! Nicely done, gents! Continue Reading “Movember Moustache Photo Diary 2012: Day 10”
