The Herdwatch Team have been looking forward to this for a long time, it's finally here, we are delighted to launch our first ever "Moovember" campaign, which will see Herdwatch & FRS take part in the official Movember "Moovement". As you may already know, Movember is all about raising awareness and funds for mens' health, so it is a great cause!
There is nothing like having a bit of fun while supporting a good cause, so we will make sure this is an enjoyable campaign for everyone, and our focus will be on seeking better mens' health services in rural and farming areas.
So, what are we doing, and how can you help?
Apart from growing a moustache (or trying for some of us!), we will kick-start the campaign by donating 200 Euro to Movember. We will also be running a very special offer for new subscribers, so if you're a cattle farmer, and you are not using Herdwatch yet, now is the time to get it, don't let the Mobile Farming Revolution pass you by:
If you subscribe between Nov 1st and Nov 30th, 2014 we will donate 10 Euro per new subscription to Movember, and you will receive a free Herdwatch beanie hat! But that's not all, if you play your part and email us or tweet us a picture of you or someone you know wearing the hat and a moustache, we will give you an extra month subscription FREE!!
If you are ready to sign up to Herdwatch, just click here or on the button below - If you would like more information about Herdwatch, visit this page, or text "frs herd" + your name to 51444 to request a call back.
I'm not a cattle farmer or I am using Herdwatch, can I still support the campaign?
YES, absolutely! We have set up our own "Team page" on the official Movember website which you can visit by clicking here. We would love if you could donate whatever you can afford, and it will go DIRECTLY to Movember. They have achieved fantastic things with the money collected through the years, and we want to help make sure they can continue that good work.
Remember, you too can get involved in raising funds, all you have to do is sign up for free on the Movember website here, and you can even join our Team if you like (it's called "Herdwatch Moovember FRS")
So let's have a bit of fun, and do something good together! Thank you for your support, and make sure to follow the progress of our campaign (and our moustaches!) on Twitter (@Herdwatch & #moovember) and Facebook (facebook.com/herdwatch).
