We officially launched inSteveston on the day before Canada Day, and since then we’ve been bringing you everything weird, wacky and wonderful about this town. All week we’re counting down the top 5 posts of inSteveston’s first 6 months, and the second most popular topic was a very hairy affair.
Having personally taken part in Movember before, when we decided to honour Dave by being Steveston’s first “Moustache of the Month” member, we started to think about what we could do this year for the global prostate cancer fundraiser. Why not go big and get all of Steveston involved? And that’s what we set out to do.
After creating team “Steveston ‘Staches” and recruiting individuals and businesses alike, the mobros of our 45 member strong team started Movember 1st clean shaven and spent the rest of the month trying to convince their spouses to give them a kiss despite their bristly soup strainers. The businesses getting involved all led up to the Steveston ‘Staches Whisker Weekend, where each store had a special mo-deal that made a donation if you bought something specific. Both the event, and our site’s traffic, proved it was a great success.
We’re so proud to say that with the collective efforts of everyone involved, the Steveston ‘Staches have raised well over $7000! We wrote a post that shared our thoughts on the Whisker Weekend and the entire Movember event, so don’t wait another mo-ment, relive the #2 most popular topic with our Salute to ‘Staches. As we look ahead to 2012, start gathering mo’ inspiration, and we’ll see you all next year!
