A Few Beers, a Moustache and A Cause Is Born–Where in the World Did Movember Come From…

Posted Nov 01 2012 5:56pm

 

 

Have you seen that world floating around the web and wonders where in the world did this word come from?  Well Adam Garone is here to tell you the story.  This was one of the TED featured videos this month which I try to catch a few of them and this has humor and he talks about how a charity process came about.  He didn’t really have a cause and a person affected which is how most charities get started.  He talks to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and this is what they said on their first meeting…they have “hairy ribbons” too..he says..
"We're an ultraconservative organization and we can't have anything to do with you... but if you happen to raise on money with this, we'll gladly take it", he heard it twice…very well done and a change from the normal routine.  BD
