At the end of Movember, I was featured as the ‘Mo Sista Spotlight’ on www.movember.com. This is a great honour as there were only two Canadian Mo Sistas featured in 2012. Check it out at http://ca.movember.com/news/view/id/4597/category/local/
Thank you to @MovemberCA for this awesome platinum reward, certificate and handwritten note! #Movember #30daysofmo
Day 30: My last picture with my moustache! It was last seen at 12:01 a.m. Dec. 1 at the Movember Gala Parte. See you again next year! #30daysofmo #Movember
At 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 1, I was the #3 ranked Mo Sista in Canada and the #8 ranked Mo Sista in the world! Thank you to all my ‘30 Days of Mo’ Movember sponsors and supporters. I couldn’t have done it without all of you!

Day 30: This year, the Movember gala was on the last day of Movember. It was a great event at the Kool Haus. The building was packed with moustachioed and costumed Mo Bros and Mo Sistas.
I dressed up as the ’70s cop from my 2011 ‘30 Days of Mo’ campaign. For some reason, I had a lot of handsome, moustachioed men asking me to arrest them for their bad behaviour. I was honoured to be nominated for ‘Best Mo in Character,’ which is traditionally an all-male category. I lost out to an amazing Magnum PI lookalike (Harrison Coe), who went on to win ‘Man of Movember.’
Thank you to Movember partners Schick and Harley-Davidson for some great activations at the event, and to Molson Coors Canada for the beverages. Thank you to Movember Canada for a great event and another successful moustache season!
During Movember, I reached a couple big Twitter milestones as well: 20,000 tweets and 3,000 followers in just 16 months on Twitter!
I didn’t have a sponsor lined up for day 30 and I was expecting to take the day to prepare for the Movember costume gala (#MoGalaTO). Then the awesome owners of Restore Health in Leslieville (@RestoreHealthTO) - Sue Love (@sueloveND) and Sapna Flower (@sapnaflowerND) - invited me to stop by the clinic so they could donate the money they raised from their Movember fundraisers to my campaign.
Their donation helped me reach the $6,000 mark! Thank you so much to Sue, Sapna, and their massage therapist Natalie.
I should also mention I’m a patient of Restore Health and blogged about the clinic and their services at www.30daysofmoself.com. They offer a wide variety of services to help improve health and wellness, include naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, massage and more. Learn more about the clinic at restoreyourhealth.ca
I love getting messages like this from Mo Bros! Mo Bros are a classy bunch, who really appreciate women’s contributions to the men’s health movement.
Day 29: After the Konnekt holiday tweetup, my moustache and I headed back to Leslieville for @theceilicottage’s annual Movember Wax-off and Auction. It was a wild event that raised hundreds of dollars for Movember.
Day 29: My moustache and I headed to my friend @AmberMac’s @KonnektNow holiday tweetup at Remy’s in Yorkville. It was a very busy night in #MoTO, but there was an amazing turnout for Amber’s event. I took the opportunity to sell some @MoSistasTO calendars and raise money for Movember. After 29 days of wearing a moustache, the guests had a lot of questions to ask me about ‘30 Days of Mo’ and Movember.
Day 29: My moustache and I went to a job interview. I can’t believe I made it through an hour long interview wearing a moustache! Bonus points for having my moustache match my jacket and shoes.
I recovered from the stomach flu in time for my Movember event at the Cold Stone Creamery (@TOColdStone) at 1094 Bloor Street West (at Bloor and Dufferin).
Not only did Cold Stone make a donation to my campaign, the franchise owners donated 15% of the day’s sales to Movember and offered a free ice cream to everyone who came in with a moustache.
Mo Sista Jennifer Dawson (@bigdealdawson) volunteered to spend the day with me chatting with customers about Movember, men’s health, and @MoSistasTO. She even sported a ‘stache the whole time she was there!
While we were there, manager Sandeep taught us how to make delicious Stone Cold Creamery creations.
The only thing sexier than a woman wearing a moustache…is a woman wearing a moustache and a hairnet!
I didn’t know Coldstone makes their own ice cream on site. This is what Jennifer and I created. Yum!
We also sold and signed calendars for some great Mo Bros who stopped by to meet us.
Thank you to @TOColdStone for supporting Movember and ‘30 Days of Mo.’ Your ice cream brought joy to many Mo Bros and Mo Sistas!
