Company’s Fourth Year Participating Raises Most Money to Date
Alpharetta, GA – The leftovers have been eaten, the trees have been brought out of the attic, and the moustaches have been shaved off. For the past four years, this has been the early December course of events at GM Voices, the world’s largest producer of professionally-recorded voice prompts for technology applications. With Thanksgiving, and perhaps more notably, Movember, out of the way, we’re ready to close out the year on a high note.
This year, GM Voices raised $1,085 for the Movember Foundation, the company’s largest donation sum yet. Movember is a month-long charity event where men raise money and awareness for men’s health issues like prostate and testicular cancers by growing and grooming a moustache. Participants change the face of men’s heath by changing their own faces. While faces can get itchy and eating chunky soup becomes quite precarious, the rugged “Mo Bros” of GM Voices are always ready to fluff out the facial follicles for a good cause.
The 2014 Movember effort was punctuated by a series of social media videos called the “’Stache Bash,” where viewers voted for their favorite moustachioed characters in an online tournament. “We had a lot of fun with the ‘Stache Bash, and it was an ideal way to get the word out to friends and family about Movember,” said Matt Strach, GM Voices Director of Marketing, whose persona “Macho Matt” won the ‘Stache Bash tourney.
With another successful Movember in the books, the team is already thinking of new ways to bring out participants and donors in 2015.
