The 2010 Movember Results

Posted By Brett & Kate McKay On December 3, 2010 @ 8:17 am In Blog | 19 Comments

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 [1], 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 [2] 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!
