The 2010 Movember Results

During the month of November, the Art of Manliness participated in Movember, an annual fundraiser in which participants grow mustaches while raising money for men’s health issues. The 426-man Art of Manliness Movember Team raised a whopping $31,337 during November. Holy-freaking-cow!  That’s truly astounding! It’s stuff like this that makes me proud to be a part of such an amazing community of men.

A big thanks to all the AoM Movember Team members who hit the pavement soliciting donations and thanks to all of you who donated money. And a very big thanks to Shaun Daws, who orchestrated the AoM effort from the land down under.

We had a contest among the AoM Movember Team to see who could raise the most money, and boy was it a close battle for the grand prize. There was a difference of less than $200 between first and second place. But there can only be one winner. And the winner is…

First place: Clint Herring. Clint raised an impressive $2,945 during November. For his efforts, we’ll be giving Clint a handsome Saddleback Leather travel case filled with manly goodies like a Merkur safety razor, a badger hair brush, Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream, and one signed copy of The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man. Thanks for the manly effort, Clint!

First runner-up: Kyle Herring. Kyle raised $2,795 and will be receiving an AoM t-shirt of his choice.

Many thanks to Saddleback for donating the travel case. And thanks again to all those who helped make Movember such a resounding success! We’ll see you next year!
