A Year Of Beards 2017 Calendar

a-year-of-beards-cover-jpegMovember is a month known to focus on men’s health. Specifically prostate, testicular cancer, and mental health. Men shave their facial hair and then grow out a mustache to raise money and create awareness for these issues.

At Generation Green, we play a part in calling attention to these matters, and specifically to the prevention of them. Our retail platform is a great way we can contribute to the prevention of health issues. We decided to create a calendar featuring locally bearded Winnipegers, in which we’ll donate a portion of the profits from to the Movember Foundation Canada.

Our staff members Ana and Dallas utilized some great Winnipeg backdrops and captured our bearded, amateur recruits perfectly!

“A Year Of Beards 2017” will be released at our Beard & Brawn in-store line launch party on Saturday, November 19th from 12 p.m. -3 p.m.  The calendar will retail for $20 with a portion of the profits donated to the Movember Foundation Canada.  For every  purchase of the calendar, you can be entered to win a our grand prize of a bicycle from White Pine Bicycle Co.!  We hope you will join us in supporting this cause.

Movember Foundation Canada is tacking men’s health issues on a global scale by collaborating with experts around the world, and funding programs that offer resources, education and solutions. The Movember Foundation has funded over 1200 programs in 21 countries!  You can read more about their mission and how you could help on their website here.
