Well another Movember has come and gone, we are now 2+ weeks into December, and I am finally getting the time to get this blog post together. It has been a busy 6 weeks with DotNetNuke World, holidays here in the United States, and planning for 2012 here within the DotNetNuke Corporation.
For those who don’t know what Movember is, it is the Month of November, replaced with Mustaches! Why? To raise awareness about the cancer’s that effect men. The goal is to raise awareness, and of course money, for those organizations that work to fight cancer, primarily LiveStrong and the Prostate Cancer Foundation
We had a number of people working to raise money around the world in the name of DotNetNuke this year, with both a team here in the US and a team based out of Canada, we had employees and community members around the world on those teams.
This year, the two teams raised $2400 for the Movember cause, $1,712 to the US team and the rest to Team Canada. The member who raised the largest amount was Richard English from http://great-webs.com/, a big thanks to Richard for his efforts! You can see his day 30 photo right there in the Day of DNN Nova Scotia t-shirt!
Some of those folks taking part in Movember took a before and after photo, those who sent them both to me are included here in a brief slide show. Our own Brian Vye participated in the month, but doesn’t have a starting photo, I think you’ll be able to pick him out.
Thank you again to everyone who participated in Movember, and those who donated to the cause. I am sure we will do this again in 2012, so start prepping your significant other’s for that! It takes some ground work to grow a mustache for an entire month and not get your neck wrung by family!
