Here at CorporateStays.com we belive in giving back to the community, and we’re proud of the support offered by our team and our guests to causes such as TECHO – an organization that works at providing housing and supporting community development in the slums of Latin America – to collections for Syrian refugees.
But Movember is a concept that is particularly close to our hearts. It’s fun, it’s innovative (like us!), and it’s for a really good cause. If you’re not familiar with the term, here’s the idea: Every year, men (and some ladies, in their own ways!) grow a moustache, and get others to sponsor them, in order to raise money for men’s health charities (such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and depression). The guys who grow are known as Mo Bros, and contests like ‘The Moscars’ and ‘International Man of Movember’ aim to publicise the event and incentivise participants.
The rules are simple: You must begin on November 1st with a clean-shaven face, you must grow and groom your moustache for the entire month, and you should harness the power of social media to promote men’s health and raise money for the official charities. Teams are allowed, and friendly philanthropy competition is encouraged.
Canada is one of the top givers in the world when it comes to Movember, so clearly something about it tickles us! We’ll be participating in our offices across north and central america, and we hope our guests will join in the fun. In fact, anyone growing a moustache for Movember gets a free upgrade at CorporateStays.com all month. How’s that for extra incentive!
