We’re officially in the midst of Movember, made famous by the Movember moustache, and it’s amazing to see how much support keeps pouring in year over year for such an important cause.
On the front lines of the movement is The Movember Foundation — the only charity raising awareness around men’s health on a global scale every year. The goal of the foundation is simple: to stop men from dying too young. By encouraging people to grow a moustache throughout the month of November, the foundation has been empowering millions of men and women to create connections and generate conversations.
Each year, hundreds of companies participate in supporting this cause and for this year, we’ve rounded up a few of the luxury company names that have pledged their support:
For a third year in a row, Oris is throwing their support behind Movember with a limited edition watch. This year, it’s a take on the ChronOris, a vintage-inspired piece marked by rose gold accents and a stamp of the moustache portmanteau on the leather strap option. Part of the proceeds from each watch sold go directly to The Movember Foundation.
This trendy men’s underwear line has long been a strong supporter of initiatives like Movember. This month, SAXX is donating $2 to the cause for each pair of its limited-edition Movember underwear sold. Anyone can join in on the fun by tagging @saxxunderwear and #braverytakesballs with a photo of one of the brand’s Movember Ambassadors as they show off their SAXX in a shop window across Toronto, New York, Chicago and Vancouver this month.
Known for catering to 18 to 35-year-olds, Contiki is supporting the cause this year by giving every Movember college fundraiser the chance to win a one-week trip to Thailand in April 2020. The travel agency has always been committed to sustainable tourism, so it’s no surprise that they’ve thrown their support into the Movember ring.
ALEX AND ANI
A big name in the North American jewellery market, ALEX AND ANI is known for its whimsical charm bracelets, which is why it was only fitting for them to create a custom Moustache charm in support of Movember. Available for purchase online and in store, a percentage of proceeds from the sale of each charm goes to the cause!
The New York-based, Australian-inspired (and funded by Miami Dolphins owner and billionaire investor Stephen Ross) coffee chain is backing Movember for a second year in a row. Throughout the month of November, participants in the Bluestone Lane Challenge can enjoy a free coffee by downloading an app and visiting any of the participating locations.
Founded in 2009 by two brothers from Stouffville, Ontario, PKG Carry Goods was designed to “withstand the wear and tear of your work/life balance.” This year, the company generously provided The Movember Foundation with 25 bags as incentives for the Movember Business Club and Banking Challenge community — a group of more than 1,000 highly engaged fundraisers across Canada.
