So what seems like the blink of an eye, Movember has been and gone, replaced with Christmas trees and Air NZ marketing campaigns. And with it those finely curled upper lip hairs have been washed down the sink for another year much to the delight of Josh and myself.
But with Movember comes an opportunity to donate to a fantastic cause in the Movember Foundation, supporting hundreds of initiatives committed to having an everlasting impact on Mens Health. Something that is often not discussed.
We set the mark of 50c per guest that stayed with us in November, and $1 for every activity that was booked through us. We were thinking $300 was going to be a great month. As it turns out we saw 702 men and women come through our doors from 27 different countries. With a further 30 guests booking activities through us. This made for a whooping $381 donation.
This has definitely highlighted to us the fantastic opportunities we have to meet and in a small way positively influence the travel experiences of so many people from all around the globe. We also gives us the opportunity to find ways to contribute to causes that are close to us and close to our community.
So to sign off, Movember has been a success, and we look forward to contributing more to the Movember Foundation in 2017.
Thanks for all the support and Merry Christmas.
