In November, our employees participated in an international awareness campaign called Movember. The nonprofit calls on men to grow out their facial hair for the entire month of November in order to raise money and awareness for men’s health initiatives.
This year, iDashboards decided to go all-out.
13 of our manliest employees, OSKAR included, volunteered to participate in the fundraiser – shaving their faces to the skin on November 1, and vowing to never shave again until December 1.
Throughout the month, employees not graced with the ability to grow hair from their face helped the cause by selling mustache cupcakes, mustache whistles and fake mustaches.
We raised even more money with Beer Cart Fridays (which brought in nearly 25% of donations).
And since we love data, we created a dashboard to track our Movember bros’ progress – with the Stacheboard!
At the end of the month, we celebrated at our office with a pizza party and awards ceremony to honor the hairy faces of our participating bros, and those who helped us raise funds for men’s health.
In total, we raised $1,100 for a great cause, and had tons of fun in the process!
