Last Chance to Join the Art of Manliness Movember Team!

Movember starts on Nov. 1. So today is your last chance to sign up and join your AoM brothers in a month long effort to grow a manly stache and raise money for men’s health issues. Up for grabs is a sweet Box of Manliness, full of manly booty. There are currently 3 official AoM teams: an American team, a Canadian team and an Australian team, although you don’t have to be from any of those countries to join them. Right now we have 72 men signed up. I’d love to see the AoM Team have 100 members kicking prostate cancer’s ass.

Be sure to sign up for the Community Movember Group; Shaun Daws has been sharing news and updates and has a FAQ section to answer your queries. If you joined another Movember team but want to be included in the AoM tally, leave a link on the other teams page.
