The Mo continues! Check out the milestones, £350's me keeping the Mo until Christmas!
MASSIVE thanks to everyone who's pledged their support already, it's all going to the Movember Foundation.
Hello. I'm growing a Mo.
and I'm doing it for
Hey I'm Si, and you probably already know that. If you do know that, you'll know that I don't normally have a moustache. When I don't have a moustache I'm a stand up chap.
Over the course of November I'm growing a moustache, and I want you, beautiful person, to fund my embarrassment with your cash.
The idea is simple, I'll grow a moustache through November and post pictures for everyone to see. You pledge money in support of how terrible a time I'm having over November, and for the money you hand over, I'll give you a reward. The options are all on the right hand side.
The more you help me raise, the more outrageous rewards and milestones will be unlocked. Don't need to know any more? Yew! Get your pledge in. Dont get it yet? Keep reading...
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the movement. The money raised goes towards research into prostate and testicular cancer, and the impact is substantial. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide and the number of cases expected to almost double to 1.7 million cases by 2030. If you didn't already think it, the foundation do some seriously amazing things.
Last year Mo's raised £11 million in the UK. This year, we're going to help them raise at least £150 more.
£2 - By the time you get to the paying bit and typed in your card details you're going to wonder why you didn't just pledge a fiver. So skip the £2 (you're getting nothing for a donation anyway) and pledge a bit more. (but seriously if you do pledge £2 thank you. That's great.)
£5 - The entry level pledger, you will receive a one off postcard, with a unique drawing from me
£5 - Rather have the real article? Come and take a selfie with yo boy.
£10 - The ultimate pampering session at Horizons, Newquay. A dip in the plunge pool followed by a relaxing sauna. Free underground parking and bunch of grapes on arrival.
£12 - Crowdfunder employee's only: I will be your personal tea maid for one working day only, tea's and coffee's to be requested by the ringing of a charming miniature hand bell.
£20 - I'll come and Mo' your lawn
£20 - Wavelength, long term supporter of Movember and Crowdfunding extrodinaires, have given up a few of their yearly subscriptions. This is strictly first come first serve and when they're gone they're gone.
£25 - an afternoon of chaffeuring in the Mazda (please note must be within Cornwall, we might not make it back if we go to Devon)
£30 - My services for an afternoon. One whole afternoon for whatever back breaking, soul destroying work you have been putting off. Please see bottom of page for personal skills.
£50 - 35 pints of Si's Secret Brew, brewed in the airing cupboard of Horizons this brew is light, fresh and delicious, and only the very last pints in the barrel will contain any sort of lumps
£100 - If you pledge £100 you can come and have the full weekend experience in the Horizons AirBNB. This is a huuuge discount on the superhosted 5* luxury Newquay pad. Please note: this is an out of season offer
I'm Si, I live in Cornwall and work at Crowdfunder. We help turn idea's into reality and we're really good at it. With your help we are going to raise £100's for the Movember Foundation, and together we're going to give life to more fathers and sons.
So here's the deal - I'm aiming to raise at least £150. There is no upper limit however, and the unlimited rewards on offer will just keep on going and going. If I get to the following milestones, these forfeits will apply:
£150 - TARGET HIT! Everyone gets a downloadable .gif of the 31days of Mo. Sure it's not that exciting but we want to get more than £150 don't we?
£200 - Everyone, no matter what you have pledged on will receive a bookmark with my moustache on it, because everyone reads books still right?
£250 - I'll dress like Napolean Dynamites brother for an entire week of work. Yup, that guy..
£350 - I'll keep this bad boy mo til Christmas
£500 - I'll shave my chest, except for a big Mo right across the middle of it.
£1000 - I'll host a 1960's Mo'town party in the Newquay pad - all backers great and small invited. There will be punch.
