Happy October, friends! Temperatures sure are dropping here in Minnesota. The leaves are falling, the frost is here, and we're emptying our closest of hats, scarves, and mittens....winter is coming!
This year, Bonnie Mohr Studio is teaming up with Movember Dairy to promote prostate health for men to fight prostate cancer. Movember is the global men's health charity encouraging men to grow a mustaches and women to support the "Mo" (mustache) for the 30 days of November. The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow and women to support the "Mo" to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives during November. Men, known as Mo Bros, are encouraged to start November 1 clean-shaven and grow their moustache for 30 days. During that time, Mo Bros become walking, talking billboards for men's health. Female participants, called Mo Sistas, play a crucial role by recruiting others to grow, sparking conversations, and raising general awareness for the importance of men's health.
So friends, to support the event, we are asking you to share your "mo" with us on Facebook! Post your best mustache photo to our page or e-mail your photo to Alyssa at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post your photo to our page. For the chance to win a Bonnie Mohr print, share your photo with Movember Dairy on Facebook! Movember Dairy is hosting a "Show Us Your Mo" photo contest that will run from November 1 to November 30. Participants can post their photos to the Movember Dairy page using hashtags #Movember and #ShowYourMo. Voting will take place on December 1, 2013, and the photo with the most "likes" will win a Bonnie Mohr print of their choice! Show you care and show your "mo!"
