We’ve all enjoyed seeing Tyler and Ari’s mustaches grow from mere stubble into respectable, robust mustaches. But alas, as all good things end, Movember has turned into December and Ari and Tyler are now ‘stache free.
The two have raised more than $1,300 for the Movember campaign. Congratulations, guys! Your dedication is admirable, and we’re very sad to see your mustaches go.
While envisionit’s premiere mustache-growers are currently without, we hope to see them again soon. As Chicago is the nation’s most mustache friendly city, they’ll be welcome with open arms.
Ari & Tyler sans mustaches. We'll always have Movember.
Movember is closing in on its final stretch throughout the U.S. and right here at envisionit media. Our “mo bros” Tyler and Ari have proudly worn mustaches for four full weeks now. What do they cite as the toughest parts of Movember? Looking like a creep, being surprised to see their mustachioed reflections in the mirror every morning, and the itchiness–at first. But for such a good cause–promoting men’s health awareness–it’s all been worth it. Thumbs up to these two for their efforts, and for letting us post silly pictures of them each week!

EIM "Mo Bros" At Your Service
We’re three full weeks in to the mustache-growing extravaganza that is Movember! Tyler and Ari are still at it, cultivating fine looking facial hair growth in the name of raising awareness and funds for overlooked men’s health issues, particularly prostate cancer. They were a little timid at our week 1 update, eased into the facial hair at the 2 week mark, and now, as you can see, they’re straight up owning their ‘staches.

Last week I ran a little social media experiment… non-scientific of course. I tweeted and posted on Facebook that for every twitter Retweet (RT) or Facebook Like/Share I got on a specific post I would donate $1.00 to my Movember campaign.
I didn’t really have any goals besides donating some money “humblebrag” and seeing if I could get 100 RTs & 100 Facebook “Likes” in a day, and seeing if it in fact worked.
Below are my findings:
read the full story...
- Surprisingly, it was much harder to get Facebook “Likes” than to get RTs on twitter
- Going into this, I thought I would easily get to 100 Facebook “Likes” but that was not the case at all. With the new Facebook feed, there is so much more news being spread and posts get lost in the clutter much quicker if people are not actually sharing the post. It is important for something to be shared and not just “liked” if you don’t want the post to be lost in the clutter
- For any brand to show up consistently on Facebook they will need to either be constantly posting status updates, (spammy and annoying) or pay for advertisements on Facebook
- There is also the option of asking your friends to repost/share your status updates, not just like them, but again, that can come off as spammy
- twitter RTs were much easier to come by. I only have 370 followers (don’t judge) but most people were more than willing to give a RT for a good cause
We informed you last week that two of our very own, Ari and Tyler, are participating in the mustache-centric campaign, Movember, an international effort to raise funds and awareness for men’s health. These envisionit media men have completed 2 weeks of the facial hair growing fest, the results of which you can enjoy below. Check back again next Monday for more progress!

The mustachioed Ari and Tyler after 2 full weeks of Movember
Thanks to the vision of the people at Movember and their goal of “changing the face of men’s health,” mustache season is upon us. The creative campaign is an international effort to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, particularly prostate cancer. Participants–or “Mo Bros”–are asked to grow a mustache throughout November, thereby sparking intrigue and conversation about this important issue.
Two of envisionit media’s own, Tyler and Ari, are proudly (albeit a bit timidly during this first week) participating in the facial hair fest, and we in turn are proud to promote their efforts.
This is the first of a weekly update on Tyler and Ari, so be sure to keep an eye out each Monday for the latest in their lip hair growth. (And please forgive Ari his goatee. He wasn’t quite ready to rock the ‘stache, and we say all’s fair in the name of a good cause.)
