Bloggers For Movember Giveaway

12 Nov

If you’ve never heard of it, Movember is an annual event which encourages people to grow mustaches to help raises funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Last year Le Clown set up a Bloggers for Movember campaign which rallied bloggers to support the cause. It was a huge success, and one that Becca from 25toFly is repeating this year.

I had so much fun with the campaign last year that I told Becca I most definitely wanted to be a part of it this year. Not only do I love supporting charities, but any excuse to grow out my facial hair is aces in my book.

You think this is photoshopped, but it’s not.

I asked Becca if I could do a giveaway on my blog, and she let me run with the idea. Such a benevolent task master that Becca.

First, let’s explain how you can get involved:

“Jen, you mentioned a giveaway.”

So I did.

I am giving away (10) Sips of Jen and Tonic notebooks because what writer doesn’t need more notebooks?

Note: hand not included in prize package

Giveaway #1

I’ll be donating a notebook to the first five people who donate to the BFM 2013 team. Go to the page, click join, and enter your information. Once you’re in, donate! Just come back here and let me know when you’re done.

Giveaway #2

Because money isn’t everything, I want to raffle off  the other 5 notebooks to those who spread the word. There are three ways you can do that:

Twitter. Tweet this post and make sure to add @JandTonic to it so I see it. If you’re stuck on what to write, feel free to use this: “I mustache you a question! Will you help Bloggers for #Movember raise money for men’s health? #BFM @JandTonic”

Facebook. Share Becca’s post on Facebook, and tag the BFM facebook page.

Blog/reblog. NaBloPoMo people, here is an easy prompt! Blog about the BFM campaign, including links to the BFM 2013 team page. Feeling lazy but want to contribute? Just reblog Becca’s post.


Want to go above and beyond and make everyone else look badly? I like your style. I’ll be giving away a top secret prize to the person who socially shares the BFM 2013 campaign the most between now and the end of the month. I don’t want to tell you what it is because I want it to be a surprise…also because I don’t know what it’ll be yet. Trust me when I say it’ll be worth it.

Prizes for Giveaway #2 and Bonus Prize will be awarded on December 1st. If you have any other questions, just ask.

Good luck!

        Regardless, your comment was appreciated…no matter what post they landed on.

    am i supposed to shave? no, i mean my face.

    • Jen and Tonic 11/12/2013 at 11:54 pm #

      If you want to shave your pubes into the shape of a mustache, we won’t stop you…

        • Chowderhead 11/13/2013 at 1:32 pm #

          But then you’d have to stand on your head, Rich, because I don’t know too many people that have mustaches above their noses.

    Hugo was hoping one of the giveaways would be your facial hair.

    • Jen and Tonic 11/12/2013 at 7:00 pm #

      Will he settle for my stray chin hairs? Got plenty of those.

  7. beckysaysthings 11/12/2013 at 2:46 pm #

    I was distracted during this post by the fact you have SIPS OF JEN AND TONIC NOTEBOOKS. That is literally the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Yes, moustaches are good too. Charity is excellent. But SIPS OF JEN AND TONIC NOTEBOOKS ARE EVEN BETTER!!!!

  8. The Hook 11/12/2013 at 2:43 pm #

    On behalf of my species, Jen, thank you for being so cool and generous.

  9. mv71 11/12/2013 at 8:55 am #

    i like your stache…i of course am doing my part and growing mine out also! (but then i always am)

    • Jen and Tonic 11/12/2013 at 10:02 am #

      I could never compete with the amazingness of your facial hair. I’ve seen it up close and personal, and it’s legit.

  10. daniheart21 11/12/2013 at 8:47 am #

    I’ll be happy to share Jen. xo

    • daniheart21 11/12/2013 at 9:43 am #

      I did tweet and share on facebook. 🙂

      • Jen and Tonic 11/12/2013 at 10:01 am #

        Did you tweet? Thanks, didn’t see it, but I’m counting it! You’re awesome for helping out 🙂

        • daniheart21 11/12/2013 at 11:07 am #

          I did tweet, but when I tried to add JandTonic it went over in characters. I am not that good at Twitter yet. lol

          • Jen and Tonic 11/12/2013 at 11:14 am #

            Oh, that’s okay! Thanks for letting me know so I can count it.

    I’m a bit disconnected this year, after a great campaign and experience last year. But there are still several bloggers doing a great job at raising awareness. Here’s one of them.

    • Jen and Tonic 11/12/2013 at 10:00 am #

      Thanks, DS! Even when you’ve been disconnected you can still help. Thanks for reblogging and helping BFM out!

    My prostate got so excited when I read this that I have been peeing since then.

      I love to excite prostates. It just might be my favorite hobby.

      • becca3416 11/12/2013 at 9:31 pm #

        Prostates and Pee both trigger and are triggered by excitement. No?
