In November, DMTB teamed up with Moes For Joe in Des Moines to help raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Societey. Cancer has touched the lives of nearly everyone and we wanted to do what we could to help support the cause. DMTB and also members of Capital City Fruit let their “Moes” grow for the entire month and donated what they could. DMTB is also making a significant donation.
We are excited to learn that Moes For Joe blew their $15000 goal out of the water. Once all donations are finalized they will have raised nearly $23000!
A little more info about Moes For Joe and their Shave Off:
“Moes for Joe”, in honor of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), allows guys to sport facial hair to show their support in the fight against blood cancers! Guys can participate by not shaving for the month of November and committing to raise funds for LLS. Suggested donation is $100.
“Moes for Joe” began in 2011 at MINI of Des Moines as a fundraiser for LLS in honor of Joe Mausser, a young boy in the midst of a battle with leukemia. Raising over $1,000 in its first year, “Moes for Joe” caught fire at Willis Auto Campus in 2012, raising over $6,000, when the effort was offered to their entire company. Now in its third year, the MINI of Des Moines team at the Willis Auto Campus has recruited several fantastic partners to help raise even more for the cause. Bella Salon & Spa, Hubbell Realty, Speck USA, and the office of Dr. Ethan Huisman are also taking part in this fast-growing fundraising effort. Patients and their families are also each given a 4-day weekend in a MINI during “Moes for Joe” month, so they can experience the joy of being driven to school, church, or anywhere in a fun MINI vehicle decked out with a moustache and the “Moes for Joe” logo.
What began in 2011 as the men at MINI of Des Moines simply growing out their facial hair for the month of November has grown to include mini-manicures with moustache decals for all who are interested, courtesy of Bella Salon & Spa. Any interested parties can also stop by any Bella location to have their moustache decals professionally applied (appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are always welcome)! Once a week, feel free to stop by Bella and have your nails touched up—simply bring along your donation receipt!
