You’re on the home stretch. Are you on the way to hit your goals? How’s your motivation? Does a teammate need one more message of encouragement or a well-chosen inspirational meme?
A good way to re-charge your fundraising batteries is to remind yourself why you're doing this. You're supporting life-changing mental health programs, groundbreaking research, innovative health projects, and scientific breakthroughs for cancer treatments.
To date, the Movember community has funded over 1,250 men’s health projects across more than 20 countries. Cheering you on to that finish line will be innovative men’s health programs like:
Movember Conversations – an online interactive tool for practical guidance on how to talk to someone who might be struggling.
Family Man – a parenting program for dads, packed with proven techniques to bring out the best behaviour in (mostly loveable) little terrors.
Social Connections Challenge – grants for new digital and technology ideas to address social isolation.
Making Connections – funding for US community initiatives to improve mental health and wellbeing for men and boys of colour, as well as veterans and their families.
True North – a digital resource to support and guide men living with and beyond prostate cancer. It also supports their families, partners and carers.
Nuts & Bolts – a digital resource to support and guide men living with and beyond testicular cancer.
How close are you to your target? How about your team’s combined target?
Don’t just be satisfied with getting over the finish line – go big and Mo for gold.
Why you Mo – remind your supporters about the work Movember does. Do you have a personal motivation that you can share?
Mo the extra mile – what will you do to hit your target? Would you dye your Mo or keep it until Christmas? Sneak in a one-week squat challenge? What about wearing fancy dress in a Zoom meeting? What would your donors give to see you Mo further?
Be fresh – link your fundraiser to topical things happening in the month formerly known as November. The US has Thanksgiving. There’s also Black Friday. Or what about getting people to donate the money they save by buying nothing on ‘Buy Nothing Day’?
We’re nearly there so let’s make these last few days count.
