Team Econsultancy are taking part in this year's Movember, an international campaign that challenges participants to change the face of men's health.

Throughout November, the male members of our team (or our "Mo Bros) will be sporting their best 'tache to raise money for charity. Mo Bros are required to be clean-shaven on the 1st of November and then have the rest of the month to grow and groom their moustaches.

In effect, the Econsultancy team will become a walking billboard for men's health. 

To date, Movember has raised over £30 million globally for the fight against prostate cancer and depression in men. And, more importantly, as a direct result, male awareness of health issues has improved with Movember helping to spread health messages directly to millions of Mo Bros & Sistas around the world. 

During the month, our team will be assaulting their upper lips by attempting to grow a 'tache. They'll be experimenting with a variety of styles including the "Tom Selleck", the "Dali" and the handlebar.

Econsultancy are also hosting many events throughout November, (including our Roundtables next week and our Online Marketing Masterclasses) so if you meet any of our team out and about, and you're wondering why they're so... ungroomed, now you'll know why...

We'll regularly update the blog with the latest news about our Movember activities, including time-lapsed photos so you can track the hairy progress of the Econsultancy Mo Bros. 

You can also catch up on the personal progress of our CEO, Ashley Friedlein, by visiting his Mo Space page:

So, if you like the 'tache as much as we do, and would like to support our efforts to raise money for the Movember Foundation, you can donate to our cause at Digital Taches United here:

In the meantime, see below for a Flickr slideshow of the mos from from Movember Day 1...

Beautiful photos guys! So great that you're participating, as it is for such a great cause. We're participating by running a video contest, and thought you'd like to leverage your fundraising efforts by creating a video! Challenge your 'competition' or document your process. Would love to chat more! Thanks - Kate
