Throughout the month of November, GIBS Grooming is doing its part to make a dent in men’s health by donating a bottle of its groundbreaking beard oil to each and every person who donates $25 or more to its Movember USA fundraising efforts. For the third year in a row, the feisty men’s grooming brand is participating in Movember, a month-long fundraising initiative to tackle some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer and poor mental health.
As per Movember rules, on Nov. 1, Brian “Gib” Long and Mike “Big Smooth” Howland, cofounders of GIBS Grooming, shaved off their beards and mustaches, beginning their month-long endeavor. “Save a Bro, Grow A Mo” means Gib and Smooth will spend November growing and tending to their ’staches, documenting the entire time. In support of their fearless leaders efforts, other Team GIBS members who can’t afford to lose their own facial fluff (this is a beard-based company, after all) will instead be accessorizing their own ‘staches on social media to solicit donations.
“Movember is all about getting guys to talk about those things they don’t want to talk about, from top to bottom,” Long says. “Cancer and mental health issues have affected the entire GIBS family in one way or another. We, as a family, will fight it, and we, as a family, will give back.”
Find the GIBS Grooming Movember page at http://mobro.co/gibsgrooming. Donating is a simple online process, and a GIBS representative will contact each donor to obtain their choice of Bush Master, Voodoo Prince or ManScaper - the argan, olive and sunflower oil-based Beard, Hair and Tattoo oils - which catapulted the company into the men’s grooming game three years ago.
GIBS Grooming is known for its straight up, no-nonsense, double and triple-duty products sold in barbershops, salons and Sport Clips stores across the country.
