November 1st is the official start of Movember, and the freshly shorn men of Team Munzee will be growing a mustache to raise funds and awareness for Men’s Health. It’s going to be a “hairy” journey, and we want you to be a part of it!
What’s Movember? Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women worldwide join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health. Men grow a Mo (moustache) for 30 days essentially turning themselves into walking, talking billboards of cancer awareness! Ladies, you’re not left out, women can support a Mo’ by becoming a Mo’ Sista and share awareness as well! A moustache is the mark of a man, and today it is a symbol to spark conversations about important health issues. Movember, an official global charity, supports world-class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer.
Team Munzee has started an official team on the Movember site, and we’re fighting for our right to change the face of men’s health. Join Team Munzee and register for Movember on Movember.com. Guys, pledge to grow a Mo’ today! Ladies, join the team to support Team Munzee’s Mo’ Bros, by becoming a Mo’ Sista! We’re really excited about Movember, and would love to see the Munzee community come together for such a great cause.
Movember is a worldwide movement, originating in Australia, so Team Munzee would love to have representatives from every Munzee nation involved this year! If you’d like to join us, click the following link to join Team Munzee, then don’t forget to start Movember clean shaven :
(Once you register with Movember.com and join Team Munzee, you’ll find more details on how to get involved. This includes getting your friends, family, and community to donate, and how to donate directly to the Movember cause.)
The fun of Movember doesn’t stop there. Team Munzee is pulling out all stops to get the Munzee community involved with Movember. We want to prove to the world that the fun of Munzee isn’t just getting outdoors and having some healthy fun, it’s also about creating a healthy cancer-free world.
-Post pictures of your Mo’ progress on Pinterest and Instagram! You can tag us via @Munzeeapp and be sure to use the hashtag #Movember to help spread awareness. Pinterest pins will be added to our #Movember Pin Board on Pinterest, and we’ll randomly give “Likes” and shout-outs (Tweets) for our Instagram friends!
We’re also selling Mustache Pins! Mustache Pins will be $1.00 (USD) each. 100% of the profits for each Mustache Pin sale will go towards a non-specific charity once Movember is over!
The Mustache Pins will be available in the Munzee Store November 1st through November 30th. Pins will also display on the Munzee map from November 1st through November 30th only (they will be archived on December 1). So purchase as soon as possible to get some great ‘stache exposure. Our Mustache Pins will have the same amount of points as regular Virtual Munzees, and follow the same in-game rules.
We’re honored by all of our players who are committed to Movember, and that’s why any player that purchases a Mustache Pin will be awarded a “Munzvember” icon. We’re also offering perks for players that go above and beyond, awarding special badges for the amount of pins purchased towards the Movember campaign. Here’s the badge icon hierarchy:
50- Fu-Man Chu
75- Rollie Fingers
100- Tom Selleck
Everyone here at Team Munzee is passionate about Movember, and we want the awesome Munzee community of players to get involved. We’ve read countless stories and met so many of you who have amazing stories of Munzee changing your health. One of the many things we’ve learned is that Munzee offers a fun, healthy experience for the entire family. Our passion for the outdoor game experience fits right in-line with healthy causes like Movember, and we want to prove it to the world. Show your support for Movember and Men’s Health.
