Movember Mustaches and Sandy Relief

From: Nate H.

Before Sandy hit, Tony & Peter and I had planned to create a joint Goodnik/New Work City Movember team. For those who don't know, Movember is where people grow mustaches for the month of November in a sort of mustachathon to raise money for prostate and testicular cancer causes. Well, we’re not going to let Sandy get in the way of that - we’re still going to grow mustaches and you can too by registering at us.movember.com and then joining the team Goodnik & NWC.

But in light of Hurricane Sandy we’re also going to make this a fundraiser for Sandy relief as well. Right now we’re asking everyone to donate with a 50/50 split between Movember and Sandy relief through Recovers.org. Recovers is coordinating both donations and volunteer efforts through a number of different neighborhoods like LESRed Hook ,Astoria and Staten Island. All donations are being collected through a joint a joint effort of Occupy Wall Street, 350.orgrecovers.org and interoccupy. To donate money to Sandy relief efforts, go to the Occupy Sandy Relief page which has already raised more than $34,000.

How can you get involved? First, if you want to join TeamGoodnik &NWC for Movember, register at http://us.movember.com and either search for “Goodnik” team when you register, or just go to the team page and click “join” once you’ve completed the registration. You can join as “mo bro” and commit to growing a moustache, or you can join as a “mo sista” supporting the effort. Once you’ve signed up, spread the word and get folks to donate some money to support both causes.

At the end of the month NWC and Goodnik will host a fundraiser that will benefit both Movember and Sandy refief efforts – it will be an opportunity to dip your mustache in some frothy suds, and get together with some folks who helped out. It’ll be fun, and raise some money for two important causes. More details about this event will be added later, but for now – start growing that mustache! I've already started, but there's still time for you to catch up!
