What is the Mad Moustache Movement?

It all started with one beer. A beer named Zoran, brewed in memory of our late grandfather, a great man with a great moustache, who sadly left us too soon due to his fight against prostate cancer. Recently we renamed this beer into Mad Moustache, to honour all the great people who left an impact on us while rocking the world with their moustaches.

 

As we are also striving to leave an impact, not just within our little bar but in the community where we live, work and interact, we created the Mad Moustache Movement. A movement with the purpose of supporting interesting local projects, which are focusing on creating a better tomorrow.

 

The first in series of Mad Moustache Movement is inspired by Movember initiative, where one whole month, men around the world let their beard grow to raise cancer awareness.

 

We brewed a fresh batch of Mad Moustache Red Ale and will donate 50 cents from every glass sold during the entire month of November to one particular local organization.

We teamed up with a NPO called Chance for Cancer Survivors with its base in Upper Austria. It is run by Michael Feilmayr, an inspiring man whose own experience as cancer survivor forced him to do something about his own fate and consequently created an opportunity for others to support them in their fight.

 

Chance for Cancer Survivors:

“…ist ganz einfach erklärt: Wir sind eine „richtige" Patienten Organisation, die österreichweit Patienten nach schweren Krankheiten beim Wiedereinstieg in den Alltag und das Berufsleben unterstützen. Das fängt im Krankenhaus an und endet nie. Wir sehen uns als helfende Hand, welche sich um alle Themen annehmen, vernetzen und helfen, denn wir sind unbürokratisch, regional und unparteiisch. Wir machen keinen Unterschied zwischen Geschlechter, Krebsart und Art der Krankheit, denn wir sind Menschen, die Menschen helfen. Wir sind ein gemeinnütziger Verein der von der ehrenamtlichen Tätigkeit seiner Mitglieder und von Spenden lebt. Helft uns grosse Veränderungen zu bewirken, denn wir streben nachhaltige Veränderungen an, damit es zukünftige Survivors leichter haben in unserer Gesellschaft. Bei Fragen oder Interesse einfach unter www.cancersurvivors.at Kontakt aufnehmen, "und nun PROST“ Euer Michael (Obmann)”

 

We believe in joining forces and harnessing the power of community, creating a positive change and building a stronger future.

 

Mad Moustache Movement will begin on Thursday, 1st November and will take place until Friday, 30th November.

 

The final donation amount will be announced on the last day with a small party in honour of the initiative.
