The NHR team met on an orchard in Goleta and harvested the mandarin oranges by hand for most of the day.
The donation allows the Food Bank to directly feed families in the local area, while continuing toward their goal of ending hunger and transforming the health of Santa Barbara County through good nutrition.
For the past few years, Curvature has participated in "Movember"- a global fundraiser that raises awareness to find cures for men's health issues, including testicular and prostate cancer. Most of the men in our office gave up shaving for the month of November in attempts to raise funds and awareness. NHR was successful in raising $8,581 this year that will go to a variety of the 570 programs that Movember funds.
Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men's health. Men grow and women support a Mo (moustache) for 30 days becoming walking, talking billboards. Movember supports world-class men's health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer.
Men who support Movember, called Mo Bros, start by registering at Movember.com. Mo Bros start Movember 1st clean-shaven, then grow and groom their Mo, for the rest of the month, raising money along the way. Women who support Movember, called Mo Sistas, also start by registering at Movember.com. Mo Sistas champion the Mo by registering and supporting the Mo Bros in their life, spreading the important message of men's health, leading a team and organizing events.
