In Movember 2005, 9,315 Mo bros rose to the challenge, a staggering $1.1 million was raised for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, and over 7,000 people attended the Movember Gala Parties held in every major city. So far - as at November 2nd, 2006 - there are over 30,000 Mo Bro's registered.....
The aim is to for each team member to grow a moustache (Mo) during Movember 2006. Cogentis Search Engine Marketing has again partnered with Upstream Technology, to form the Cogentis Upstream Mo Bro moustache growing team.
Every year, 10,000 Australian men are diagnosed with, and more than 2,700 die of, Prostate Cancer. Prostate cancer is the second largest cause of male cancer death (after lung cancer) in Australia. Male depression is also a serious issue because one in six men suffer from depression at any given time but most don't seek help. Cogentis & Upstream believe these are worthwhile charities to support.
This year, we are planning to top our Movember 2005 effort, where we raised over $1,500 for Movember (plus we donated our services and ran the Movember search engine marketing campaigns); and Jason stole the show (literally.....) with a leap onto the stage to show off his unique 'back Mo' (the infamous 'double Mo'). Movember is about "putting the Mo back on the face of Australian fashion" - last year - Jason "put the Mo on the back of the face of Australian fashion"....
Unfortunately - last year - Movember didn't have a category for the best 'Freestyle Mo' grower, or the 'Most Creative Mo' last year. I trust Movember management (that's you Adam!) has a 'freestyle' category covered for 2006, when we'll again attempt to push the limits of Mo creativity.... Jason is looking forward to really getting into a new Mo character for 2006.....

Last year, we didn't just 'put the mo back on the face of Australian fashion'.....
Jay also 'put the mo on the back of the face of Australian fashion' too...
Last year, Jay went for the Chopper look - with attitude... Not one Mo - but a matching 'double Mo' at the back... See more of our Movember 2005 team pics & details.
Cogentis has also donated search engine marketing services to Movember, running Adwords campaigns to help raise interest in Movember, awareness of men's health issues, and raise money for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and Beyond Blue.

As part of our Movember 2005 fundraising - Mo Sista Janda organised a BBQ at 51 Rawson Street. It was really well supported - over 80 people who work in our building came along for lunch. Janda also organised and sold 'stick on' moustaches... We'll be organising this again in 2006
