We are very excited to officially announce that Rickard’s is a proud partner of Movember this year! Starting November 1st, hundreds of Molson Coors employees will become Mo Bros and Mo Sista’s, raising awareness and funds for men’s health. You can support our employees or sign up yourself at http://ca.movember.com.
Are you participating this year? Challenge your friends to a Mo-Duel! What team will you join… The White Walruses, The Blonde Handlebars, The Red Imperials or the Dark Chevrons??
About The Campaign
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
Yup, this Saturday, August 7th is National BBQ Day, and the national, youth-led charity Meal Exchange is inviting Canadians to take part in the yummy day while also fighting hunger in Canada.
What’s the ask? It’s simple:
Register & host your own backyard BBQ for friends, family and neighbors to raise awareness about Canada’s hunger problems.
Meal Exchange believes that everyone in Canada should have access to sufficient, nutritious, and culturally acceptable food in order to maintain a healthy & active life. Did you know that 2.7 million Canadians don’t know where their next meal is coming from?
How to participate (and a change to win 2 WestJet tickets!):
Register your BBQ at http://nationalbbqday.eventbrite.com/ and send Meal Exchange a photo of your BBQ’ing fun to nationalBBQday@mealexchange.com
You can also tweet about your BBQ fun using hashtag – #nationalBBQday
Registration is FREE, but here’s some food for thought: it takes only $28 for Meal Exchange to empower one youth to take action against hunger in their community. Donate here to help Meal Exchange support youth across Canada.
So this pretty much sounds like the perfect day to me – BBQ, a case of Rickard’s beer (taster’s pack – Red, White and Dark of course) and raising awareness about hunger.
Will you be participating? Have a BBQ/grilling recipe worthy of National BBQ Day!
