As Movember keeps taking off across the US, I want to strive to keep embracing and promoting the message of Movember throughout the community, both locally and abroad.
Men's health is an often neglected portion of society, and our Mo's bring it to the fore-front as a walking billboard of awareness!
Good work brother! Nothing beats a ginger mo!
Houston MoBro's and MoSista's - THANK YOU!
With a few days of fundraising left, Houston has come together to have over 3750 MoBro's registered to raise almost HALF A MILLION DOLLARS this Movember! Official donations can still be made online up to the 9th December, so THANK YOU for an amazing effort from everyone involved!
As our last hurrah this Movember, we'll be taking over the Refinery at 702 West Dallas St this Friday for the 3rd Annual Houston MoDown Show-Down. All the details can be found on our Facebook event page - https://www.facebook.com/events/559154780839192/
Come on out and register for our Houston 'Man of Movember' / Ultimate Mo contest for a chance at some great prizes! Registrations start at 6:30 with the contest starting at 8:30pm!
Woodford Reserve have been a great supporter of Movember throughout Houston, and they'll be on hand with drink specials and samples. We'll also have a silent auction and live music throughout the evening.
Thank you once again Houston for getting behind Movember in a huge way in 2013.
Gen Mo really rocked Houston!
Thanks for standing up for men's health and being part of another amazing Movember. You've helped make the Oil Rig Rumble one of the top fundraising networks in the world. When it's all said and done, about 2745 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas will have raised over $1.5 million dollars as part of the Oil Rig Rumble. Standings for challenges close on December 9th at 5pm. If you have any more donations that you need to get in, try and do it before then.
Amazing job this Movember. Together we are changing the face of men's health.
The Top Individual Fundraiser and the Top Team Captain from the Financial Services Challenge will receive a custom set of Movember LSTN Headphones.

Good afternoon all Macquarie mo-growers,
As the global administrator of Macquarie’s Movember efforts, I thought you would be interested in knowing how Macquarie is faring in the leaderboard stakes as we come to the close of Movember.
All Macquarie staff who have joined Movember should by now be looped into the Macquarie Global Network. If you know of any colleagues who are not appearing in the network, please let me know.
Macquarie is currently ranked 8th in the “Multinational Networks” (a category within Movember’s fundraising tally). Following matching from the Macquarie Group Foundation, which will appear on Movember’s leaderboard on 6 December, we should be in a good position to come in the top 3 Networks globally. Your supporters can still donate after 10 December but Movember’s fundraising prizes and leaderboards close at 9am on 10th Dec (AEDT).
The below figures/rankings are before Macquarie Group Foundation matching.

Happy Thanksgiving Houston MoBro's and MoSista's!
As the holiday season kicks off, we have lots of great opportunities to spread the word about those amazing Mo's around the dinner table as we reconnect with family and friends... below are some tips for how to successfully navigate Thanksgiving with a Mo!
With over $425k raised thus far, Houston is one of the largest international networks! As we hit the final push and the impending liberation of those upper lips, fly the Movember flag high!
And hold on to that Mo until our 3rd Annual Mo-Down Show-Down at the Refinery on December 6. The gang from Shave and Woodford will be out in force and we'll have our annual Mustache Contest, awarding Houston's Man of Movember! Check out our Facebook page for further details!
Hey Mo Bros and Mo Sistas! The Oil Rig Rumble is absolutely rocking again this year. 2473 of you have already raised over $800,000. The awareness and funds you've collectively raised will go so far to help change the face of men's health. Each and every one of you are such a big part of the Movember community. Thank you and keep it up!
