Movember Competition! #BristlrDoesMovember

Movember

That’s right, this month (and this month only!) we’re supporting SHAVING! We’re raising Movember awareness through competitive goodness.

If there’s one thing we love at Bristlr, it’s a good cause, and we strongly believe in the Movember cause!

You might find the idea of shaving off your beard a terrible one, but even if you don’t join in the Movember Mo growing it’s still worth supporting.

Movember raises awareness of something that isn’t often talked about among men – health! Specifically health problems faced by men such as prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health. It’s scary to think about but many men are dying far too young due to these issues. Why? Because men aren’t often enough encouraged to talk to each other about their health (specifically mental health), usually from an early age.

So, now you know the basics of the Movember cause (be sure to check the website for more info!), let’s raise some awareness ourselves with a competition!

To enter using your Instagram or Twitter account – be sure to tag us in your final Mo picture on the last day of #Movember, and use the hashtag #BristlrDoesMovember! We’ll choose our winner and runners up, then get in touch in the first week of December.

We’ve got great prizes on offer, so be sure to enter. But more importantly, be sure to support the amazing Movember charity! We look forward to seeing your Mos!

Happy Movember!

Bristlr’s going speed dating in London this Movember

Eclipse_London_3226

We’re off speed dating! We’re teaming up with SpeedDater for a special evening of speed dating, with all money going to charity.

If you can make it to London on NMovember 27th, get yourself a ticket! 100% of the ticket price is going to the Movember Foundation.

The event will see you paired with various potential partners, all with a love of the beard. On arrival you’ll be greeted by a SpeedDater and/or Bristlr host and given a badge that’ll match you with your table. Every time the bells rings those with beards will rotate around, and you’ll have a card to mark on who takes your fancy. After the event you simply log on to SpeedDater’s website and you’ll be able to see all your matches from the evening. Fun, right!?

All we ask is that you make sure to get permission before commencing any beard fondling.

Tickets are £10 each and available here. Get them quick as there’s only a limited number of places available.

If you’re not familiar with them, SpeedDater launched in London in September 2002 and has grown into Europe’s largest organiser of singles nights, specifically speed dating events. They hold regular events in over 40 UK cities.

See you in London!
