By now, you’re probably growing used to seeing some bristly upper lips where they were previously clean-shaven as we get further into the month of November, but you might also notice food sporting a trendy mo, as moustachioed cookies & doughnuts hit the shelves for men’s health research.
Coles supermarkets nationwide are offering Mo Bros and Mo Sisters the chance to swap their ‘stache for something a little sweeter by purchasing limited-edition moustache-shaped donuts, with 10c from every two-pack sold donated to Movember. Additionally, Coles will donate $1 from the sale of participating products in the new and exclusive to Coles KOi For Men grooming range throughout the month, and 50c from each sale ongoing.
Movember APAC Country Director Rachel Carr said, “We are so grateful for the support we receive from Coles team members and customers every year, and the addition of ongoing donations from the new KOi For Men grooming range will help us make even more of a meaningful impact on men’s health.
“Men’s health is in crisis. Every donation—no matter how small—adds up, and with the help of our Rockstar Mo community, like Coles right across Australia, Movember will continue funding and delivering life-saving research and programs to prevent our fathers, brothers, partners, sons and mates from dying prematurely.”
Meanwhile, the Mo Bros and Mo Sisters from THICC Cookies are chipping in with the smart cookies during Movember to help them raise funds.
The team has created a special Mo-Choc-Chip Cookie—a thick New York-style choc chip cookie complete with a chocolate moustache. The cookie costs $7, and there’s also the Movember PRO-MO Box ($26) which has 2 x Mo-Choc-Chip Cookies and 2 x Funfetti Cookies.
And 100 per cent of the purchase price of every Mo-Choc-Chip Cookie sold (whether individually or part of the special box) during November is being donated to Movember to help fund ground-breaking men’s health projects across mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Plus, the Mo-Choc-Chip cookies are delivered nationwide and are tax deductible.
“Mental health issues are a serious issue in the hospitality sector, and we wanted to do something to help this awesome charity,” said THICC Cookies co-founder Chris Sheldrick.
“Our choc-chip cookies are hugely popular and we thought this would be a great way to chip in.”
