While at Blissdom Canada I had the lovely pleasure of meeting Caron while on the Movember excursion. I had actually missed the excursion I had chosen but managed to tag along with my roomie and another awesome friend.
About Movember. Taken from this info page.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
For the month of November I’ll be donating $4 from the sale of my moustache cozies.
Donations can also be made directly through My Movember page.
Wow. Just wow.
Yes it’s taken me a week to write this post but life has been so ridiculously busy and also I haven’t really known where to start with it all. But I can say I had an absolutely amazing time at Blissdom Canada!
It was my first time so I was a bit hesitant but I had no reason to be. I only live about 30 mins outside of Toronto so while I could have commuted back and forth I decided to get a hotel room. I tweeted @BlissdomCA and asked if there was a system for finding roomies, they just retweeted me and I found the wonderful Shannon. I kid you not she is amazing. Her recap of the weekend is freaking hilarious.
So I had only chatting with Shannon on twitter and email a bit, then Friday night her plane had to make an emergency landing and she was about 7 hours later than she meant to be! She didn’t get to the hotel until 11:30ish. Normally I’m a night owl but I was pretty tired that day and probably would have been in bed already if it wasn’t for the fact that a stranger was about to walk into the room and I was in bed in my jammies. But she walked in and we got along and all was well.
I noticed that fantastic painting placement while trying to keep my eyes open waiting for Shannon.
I had made some friends Friday night during the fun car rally and all four of us ended up spending some fun times together. It was a great weekend.
Oh and I also learned some stuff, got a load of SWAG and met a lot of great people. I have a pile of cards to show for it and plan on shouting from the rooftops about the ones that I adore.
I learned about Movember and even got involved.
We headed to Soupstock in the afternoon before parting ways.
