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 $4,500!!!

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) of Grooming Dept to produce a shaving soap that'll be available for purchase in late October/early November. A portion of the money from the soaps sold will be donated directly to our DFS Movember team page as well as a smaller percentage being donated to TJ's Travel Funds & Care Packages to help kids and families with leukodystrophy.


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
ESBrushmaker of Brad Sears ShaveWorks
CaD314 of Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements
dominicr of Black Tie Razor Company
whollykaw of WhollyKaw

once I get all of the donated items from the merchants, I'll split them into 4 lots and post the lots in the contest forum section. each lot will run for a week. whoever agrees to pay the most for that particular lot, will win everything within the box.

see this as an example: https://damnfineshave.com/thread-dfs-mov...cember-2nd
