If you’ve been by the Boardroom on West 4th Avenue this month, you may have seen the #SaxxMan Curtis Giddings strutting his stuff in the storefront window. Giddings spends everyday in only his underwear, dancing, playing hoops or painting, all in hopes of raising funds for Movember.
So far, Giddings has raised over $20,000 and ranks as the #4 top Movember fundraiser in Canada. The stunt is part of a charitable effort from Saxx Underwear. Saxx is donating $2 from every purchase of “Stache Saxx” underwear in the month of November and The Boardroom is supporting the campaign by housing the #SaxxMan as well as providing an additional donation for every pair sold.
The Movember campaign encourages men – and possibly some women – to grow their ‘stache and raise money in support of men’s health issues including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. To date, over 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide for Movember raising over $574 million.
Giddings; an actor, furniture builder and now underwear model, was inspired to participate after struggling through depression for a good part of his life.
Stop by The Boardroom to say hello to Curtis or just check out these photos to see what you’re missing.
