Dares For Donations As A Final Push This Moustache Season

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- This GivingTuesday, Movember, the leading men's health charity, is challenging participants to do a dare for donations to raise those last-minute, much-needed funds. From half-shaven moustaches to dying their upper lip fur, Movember is asking Mo Bros and Mo Sisters to take it one step further to raise funds and awareness for men's health. Fundraisers are encouraged to find fun and innovative ways to engage donors as an added incentive. The charity is aiming to meet a 1-million-dollar goal on GivingTuesday.

"We're so grateful for all of the efforts of our Mo Bros and Mo Sisters around the country who work tirelessly to fundraise for us. Without them we couldn't do the work we are doing to help change the face of men's health," said US Executive Director, Mark Hedstrom.

Hedstrom continues, "We hope on this final GivingTuesday push we can encourage everyone to offer up a fun dare for donations. Maybe you're willing to recreate an iconic photo of a moustachioed legend and reward donors with signed copies. Get creative. We just want people go the extra mile as we finish another incredible moustache season."

This GivingTuesday, Movember is teaming up with Health House to host a workout class where all proceeds from the event will go back to the organization. Health House is a state-of-the-art rowing fitness studio which recently opened in Los Angeles. Actors Jason O'Mara (The Man In the High Castle), Emma Slater (Dancing With the Stars), Matthew Postlethwaite (Peaky Blinders) and influencer, Kingsley are just a few of the expected talent to attend the charity class.

To help reach Movember's $1 Million GivingTuesday goal, Mastercard and Topgolf are providing an additional incentive. Each time you donate $10 or more on us.Movember.com using a valid Mastercard, Mastercard will give $10 to Movember, up to US$150,000, and Topgolf will give you a $10 play voucher. This will end 12/31/19 or when the maximum $150,000 giving amount is reached, whichever comes first. See full terms and conditions.
