Successful don-a-moustache campaign for a good cause
Precisely 200 employees participated in the campaign, making for a total of 20,000 Euros in donations raised during the campaign. The proceedings will go to the Förderverein Hilfe bei Prostatakrebs e.V. (FHbP), an aide fund for prostate cancer, as well as to other research projects of the Movember® Foundation.
‘Movember’ comes from ‘Moustache’ and ‘November.’ It is a campaign initiated by Movember.com, whose objective is to improve men’s health through more preventive health care in keeping with the motto STOP MEN FROM DYING TOO YOUNG. On average, men do not live as long as women. According to the German Federal Statistical Office, the current life expectancy for men is 78.6 years, whereas the average for women is 83.4 years.
Erbe’s employees were glad to join in on the initiative in keeping with the slogan GROW A MO, SAVE A BRO.
