Gentlemen, rev your ‘staches! You may be familiar with Movember, the movement sweeping the globe and inviting those so-inclined to grow glorious moustaches in an effort to raise awareness for men’s health. This year, the Culture Crew at HOSTING decided to draw special attention to this hirsute affair by throwing the first annual HOSTING Movember Contest!
That’s right, gentlemen (and ladies!), you’re invited to put your moustache-growing chops to the test! All it takes is a quick submission* to Movember@HOSTING.com with the following info:
- Your name (and/or chosen moniker)
- Your clean-shaven “Before” photo
- Why you’ve chosen to participate in Movember!
What’s the best part about this contest, you ask? The winner of the HOSTING Movember Contest will win a $500 donation made in their name to the Movember Foundation (or a charity of their choice)! Now, down to business – how the winner of our illustrious contest will be chosen. Here’s a timeline:
- Oct. 31: Submissions close!
- Nov. 1: Grow those ‘staches!
- “Before” photos will be posted to the HOSTING Facebook page. Use this opportunity to let your friends and family know you’re participating and to drum up support! Use hash tags #MoHOSTING and #Movember in your social campaigning!
- Nov. 15: Share your ‘stache!
- Submit a “During” photo to Movember@HOSTING.com, if you’d like. We’ll use these images to promote the contest and keep the voting public engaged.
- Nov. 30: Halt all growth!
- That’s right, it will be time to bid farewell to your furry moustache friend! But first, take your “After” photo and send it to Movember@HOSTING.com or post it to our wall on Facebook!
- Dec. 2: May the best ‘stache win!
- Head over to the HOSTING Facebook page and find the “2014 Movember Contest – VOTING!” photo album! Encourage your friends, colleagues and family to “Like” your photo on the HOSTING page by Dec. 7.
