We’re kicking off November by supporting a great initiative called Movember. Founded in Australia in 2003, Movember has grown from 30 Mo Bros to over 5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas and has raised over $667M globally since 2003. As the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round, they are addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. And while Movember is predominantly known as a men’s health initiative, they’ve increasingly shifted their focus over recent years to include a disruption to long held assumptions about men’s health (and getting men to take action with their health) and a focus on positive elements of masculinity - all things we want to support!
We're excited to seize the opportunity to utilize our Friendraising functionality to take part in this initiative. You can engage your fellow Benevity-ites, as well as your family and friends outside of Benevity, in your Friendraising initiative. Together, we can continuously work to prevent men around the world from dying too young.
Here's how you can participate in Movember:
Fundraise for Movember
Create your Movember profile...
You will need to sign up for a Movember profile here. Select "Join Up" on the top right corner. Enter your information and choose to participate by joining a team (search: Benevity). Follow the instructions to set up your Movember profile and fundraising page.
If you participated with Movember campaign before (as a part of Benevity or independently), your Movember profile should still be active. If you were part of the Benevity Movember campaign last year, you'll just need to confirm that you'd like to rejoin the Benevity team when you initially log in. If you participated in Movember outside of Benevity's campaign in the past, you'll need to search for and join the Benevity team.
...then, start your Personal Friendraising page.
You can do this by clicking on the "Create my friendraising page" at the top of the Movember Friendraising Opportunity. Enter your individual information. We think it's pretty intuitive (due to our great UX ;) but please feel free to reach out on Slack at #mygoodness and one of our Goodness Catalysts can help you.
