End of Movember
My first Movember has drawn to a close. What a brilliant way to raise money and awareness for a great cause. I am so proud of Canada. We lead the world with over $38,000,000 in donations.
Over $5000 of those donations were contributed by my little group, The HeadhonchMos. I’d like to shout out to our team leader, Steve Maess, a Calgary mortgage planner who recruited my dad. His enthusiasm made the process a blast. Check out the Stashkerchiefs he made:
Steve’s Bro owns the quirky/fabulous Chapel Hats in Chinook Mall and generously volunteered it for an after hours team wrap up party. Everyone spent the evening mingling and trying on hats. The store itself is really unique. Almost all of the furniture is recycled. The floor, for example, was originally the floor of an old school in England. There are hundreds of little round dents from the heels of the nuns’ shoes.
My dad and I ended up winning Man of Movember and Miss Movember for top donations in our gender categories (mine wasn’t difficult to win as I was the only girl on the team). We also bought the hats we’re wearing. Dad’s hat is so fabulous, I’m pretty sure it was made for him. Mine is just something to help me feel a bit cooler at break dancing class. Also, check out all the merch we won during the raffle! I had a shameless 5 tickets drawn! I plan to wear the Zombies Love Moustaches shirt dancing as well.
All in all, a successful year! Next time around, I plan to get a little more crafty with it.
Thanks to everyone who grew a mo, and all those who donated. More importantly, than you to those who supported me and my team! You’re amazing.
