Stop Men Dying Young – Movember

It’s the month formally known as November, and you know what that means – time to grow the Mo. Didn’t get the memo? Thirteen years ago, November was crowed ‘Movember’ by the Movember Foundation to raise awareness for the current crisis in men’s health.

Men are dying too young – on average, four years younger than women, and for reasons that are largely preventable. Thanks to the foundation, every able-bearded man can now take the Movember challenge and grow out his ‘stache in the name of good health.

If you’re not blessed with facial hair à la Paul Bunyan (or if you’re a female – guilty), you’re in luck – that doesn’t exclude you from participating in our Movember BrandBrief campaign.

We’re helping the Movember team to do things: 1) raise awareness for the Movember movement and the men’s health crisis and 2) send people to their donation page. Interested?

Simply download BrandBrief from the App Store if you haven’t already, find the Movember campaign, and donate a post for this great cause.

As Forrest Gump famously said: “My mama always said you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, where they going, where they been.”

It all started with a text – a cool photo of shoes (of course), a quick grab of a soon-to-be very important Instagram handle (@shoesofNYC) and a casual inquiry of interest – what do you think? What followed: thousands of photos, thousands of stories, and 32,300 (and counting) Instagram followers.

Questions?

Can I support without having to create and donate a post through the app?

Absolutely. We have a page set up where you can donate directly here.

Is there an Android App?

BrandBrief isn’t currently available on Android unfortunately because over 70% of our community work on Apple devices. Don’t let that stop you though! Head to our fundraising page and you donate direct!

How do I win the iPhone 7?

A new iPhone 7 is being donated by BrandBrief to encourage your support by creating and donating posts through the BrandBrief App. In order to be in the running for the iPhone 7 you’ll need to submit your posts through BrandBrief so we can track your submission.

Winners will be chosen on the 23rd October, 2016 at the absolute discretion of Bob and Linda Carey themselves. Criteria is based on your creative use of the Tutu, Ballerina Bob and the engagement generated through your posts.

I have less than 1,000 followers on social media, can I participate using the BrandBrief App?

Yes you can. It doesn’t matter how many friends or followers you have, you can donate posts via the BrandBrief app for causes.

Does BrandBrief make money from this campaign?

BrandBrief does not make a single cent by supporting the Carey Foundation or from any sales of products associated with or for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Our efforts and energy to help support causes is purely philanthropic.

Our belief is that as our influencer network grows (with reach already into tens of millions) we have the power to give back. Causes are at the heart of what we want to achieve with BrandBrief which is why we developed the ‘Donate this Post’ option in our pricing guide for influencers.

Here is a link to download the BrandBrief App once again.

We can’t wait to see your submissions and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support. We’re hopeful that together, we can reduce the stress that goes along with a breast cancer diagnosis.
