Got Stache? Movember The True Viral Movement
Movember is the mash-up of Moustache and November. Get all insights about the hairy, but true viral movement that is raising global awareness for prostate and other male cancer charities.
You will have noticed? Your male co-workers, friends, family, VIPs, Celebs around the globe getting hairier and hairier faces this month.
The reason? They support global movement Movember: one month of lip hair cultivation. Please don’t make fun of them, since these face farms are dedicated to raise awareness of men’s health.
This motion graphic about Movember will give you a good overview of the month and what it is all about.
We love the fact that technology is enabling people to do more good. In my opinion Movember is even beyond “tech to do go good” beyond and becoming a powerful growing movement, truly viral at heart. Creating buzz at millions of coffee machines.
One of the big viral drivers, is the many consumer competitions that are being held the whole month, producing tons of consumer generated content of men showing their Movember moustache photos on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr etc.
How big the Movember 2011 movement already was? Take a look at below infographic. It’s not only fun, its generating donations by the crowd!
I understand you need to be a pretty hairy bastard if you still want to participate and grow your moustache this week.
But hey, your donation to Movember would be greatly appreciated as well.
