Starting today, Dine Alone Records and Alexisonfire will be donating their collective faces to raise awareness about prostate cancer. Their donation and commitment is the growth of a moustache for the entire month of Movember.
Alexisonfire participated in Movember in 2008, and have renewed their commitment this year including a friendly competition with their Canadian label, Dine Alone. They are encouraging people to not only donate, but to join in the “Dine Alone vs AOF” fun. Either way, everyone wins as their team member’s donation-totals all go towards the team total.
“This is a cause that Dine Alone and Alexisonfire feel very passionately about,” says Dine Alone owner Joel Carriere. “We are asking for people to support our efforts by making whatever donation they can to help support Prostate Cancer Canada.”
4,400 men die of prostate cancer in Canada each year and one in six men will be diagnosed during his lifetime.
