Once a week, Birchbox’s resident yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will gives us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.
If you haven’t heard, it’s Movember and some Birchbox staffers are rallying in support. Movember is a global initiative that started in 2003 in Melbourne. The idea is that men all over the world grow a moustache for the month of November and ask friend and family to donate in support of men’s health, specifically cancers that affect men. Some of the organizations that benefit domestically from Movember are the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. At the end of the month, participants are encouraged to celebrate by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partes held around the world by the organization itself.
I think Movember is a really fun and creative way to raise awareness around health concerns that affect us guys. Amazingly, the organization has grown to 1.1 million participants and has raised $174 million in its 8 years of existence. Birchbox CFO Mike is representing in our office and I’m fully in support! Who ever thought that facial hair could do so much?!
Even though we’re a beauty company, that doesn’t mean we don’t have presents for the guys too. Visit our Men’s Holiday Guide to pick up something for yourself or the important men in your life.
