Thursday March 20th

Product

Hello Beardsmith's,

Over the past several months, years… I've been asked, "Do you shampoo your beard?", "Do you use conditioner?" "Any recommendations?" Well thanks to our friends at Beardsley, Beardbrand, and Honest Amish, we have some samples for our next meeting. I've received shampoo, conditioner, oils, lotion, and some wax. I'll bring some small bottles with me so you can try some of these at home. If you happen to have any small 3oz bottles, bring them with you and I'll hook you up with some products to try. I'll also bring some products that I have so you can try them out as well. If you've ever had any questions about waxing your mustache, Devon and Sam Holcombe will be doing a waxing demo to show us all how it's done. I hope to see you on Thursday, March 20th at Underbelly from 6pm-9pm. Bring your questions and your facial hair. It'll be fun!!!!!

Celebrate Movember with GroomU

Movember 2012 has officially begun and to celebrate this taschetastic time, GroomU, one of the UK’s leading providers of men’s grooming products, have created a guide to the month where men do their best to grow a mo’ that would make Tom Selleck proud. The idea behind the charitable event is to grow your whiskers and groom them into a marvellous moustache to help raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. If you missed the start of the month, don’t fret; it’s not too late to become a Mo’ Bro. Simply start with a clean shaven face and let your upper lip do the rest.

We had a ton of baked goods provided by the extremely awesome Sweet N Flour and The Sugar Tryst. Everything was delicious and our table was packed. Huge thanks to the bakes and everyone who helped out. Check out more photos from the event here.

Movember Jax at Pecha Kucha 11

We had a chance to talk about Movember even more at this month’s Pecha Kucha. It was loads of fun and it really helped us spread awareness about what Movember is really all about.

Wondering what Pecha Kucha is? Well, it’s a quick-paced presentation where each person only has 20 slides lasting 20 seconds each. Other presenters included Kelly MacDonald who talked about her solo trip across the US, Violet “The Awful Waffle” Skinner who talked about the Jacksonville Rollergirls & Kenny Harper about visiting Europe! Huge thanks to Stephanie Soden and Tiffany Manning for putting this on.

Movember Takes Over Art Walk

One of our best Movember events so far has been the Movember Art Walk! Our main event was the Movember Art Show at The Art Center II at 229 Hogan Street where there was great art, free beer courtesy of Intuition Ale Works and music by Dennis Eusebio. The show consisted of about 26 artists that participated with about 34 pieces altogether! Many thanks to all of the artists, Dennis Eusebio, Intuition Ale and all of the helpers we had to help run the show.

We had our Movember Info Booth & Craft Table in Hemming Plaza where Art Walk patrons were able to make their own mustaches and learn a little about what Movember is all about.

The sweet tooths could enjoy the Movember Bake Sale outside of Snyder Church courtesy of master bakers The Sugar Tryst and Bee Ewe Eye.

Art Walk patrons could also buy some mustache-themed art from the AIGA Atomic Sketch event in the Old Library.

We even had a street team to spread the word on all the awesome stuff going on put together by the Jacksonville Rollergirls passing out Movember materials & mustaches. Many thanks to all who participated, The Art Center for lending us the space and Downtown Vision for helping us put this whole thing together. You can check out all the photos from the event here.

ABOUT MOVEMBER
Mo, slang for moustache in Australia, and November come together each year to form Movember, a worldwide charity working to change the face of men’s health — literally. The rules are simple, Mo Bros start Movember 1st clean-shaven and grow a moustache for 30 days. The stache becomes the “pink ribbon” for men’s cancers and the way by which awareness and funds are raised. Mo Sistas can also collect donations online in support of their Mo Bros. Over $42 million was raised last year — US donations benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

ABOUT MOVEMBER JAX
Learn more about local Movember events by visiting the Movember Jax website or following us on facebook - better yet, register online as part of the Movember Jax Network & help us change the face of men’s health by raising funds & awareness!
