Hi all,


We're back for another year of participation in Movember to help raise awareness and money for men's health issues!  Since we started doing this in 2015, we've raised over $2,700!!!

With the idea of getting the forum involved, I reached out to all of the merchants on the forum to see if they'd donate some shaving supplies that will be broken up into several different lots and offered up to whoever agrees to donate the most money for each given lot.  We're going to do 4 lots for Movember, plus one for the best mustache, with each new lot starting on a Sunday, in a new thread.  So far we've had several merchants agree to donate shaving supplies to help raise money.

In addition to doing the lots like we always do, we've decided to change it up some this year and team up with Mohammad (GroomingDept) from Grooming Dept to do 75 soaps in his beef & duck base specifically for the DFS Movember donation drive.  Mohammad is going to donate a portion of the funds for each soap sold directly to our Movember team page.  The scent for the soap is still TBD.


Here's a list of merchants that have agreed to donate products to the forum (I'll add to it as more respond to me):

andrewjs18 of Damn Fine Shave
whollykaw of WhollyKaw
ezlovan of Stirling Soaps
MrFine  of Fine Accoutrements
CaD314 of Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements
Viking of Viking Soap
jankdc of The Gentle Shave
Mystic Water of Mystic Water
Sapone Di Paolo of Sapone Di Paolo
dominicr of Black Tie Razor Company
Ryan @ Tallow + Steel of Tallow & Steel
Colonial Razors of Colonial Razors
ShadowsDad of Krampert's Finest
hawns of Chatillon Lux
Barrister_N_Mann of Barrister & Mann

I'll post photos of each box of items that a merchant sends to me, to help keep everyone interested.

**Please note: I'm unable to ship any aftershaves and/or splashes with alcohol in it outside of the United States.  If you agree to donate the most money for a lot that lot has an alcohol based aftershave or splash in it and you live outside of the United States, I will have to pull that item from the lot before sending it out.**

I have set up a team page with a fundraising goal of $2,000.  if you'd like to donate on your own without getting involved in trying to offer up a top donation for a shaving supply lot, you're free to do so on the team page.  100% of the money raised will get donated directly to the Movember Foundation.  When a donation is made to the team page over on the Movember website for a shaving supply lot, I'll provide a copy of the receipt (sensitive data obscured) so everything is kept open & honest.

At the end of the Movember fundraiser, we're going to have a best mustache contest where the winner will win several prizes.  If you'd like to be entered into the best mustache contest, please post a photo of your mustache while holding up a written note with the date before November 1st and then another photo at the end of the contest so we can compare the two!

Thanks,

DFS Team

Excellent! I’ll be buying some GroomingDept for sure, and most likely doing some bidding. Nice to see you guys doing this and giving everyone a chance to give back.
