Movember and Beyond – SGN Does Good



During the month of Movember (the month formerly known as November), SGN is excited to be a part of the Movember foundation, a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives.

So what is Movember? The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.

Team members from San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Diego, and Culver City banned together to form the SGN Soul Patches. And we’re going beyond just getting scruffy for the month – for the first time, SGN’s Mo Sistas (and our follicle-y challenged Mo Bros) are joining the cause by participating in the MOVE challenge.

SGN is excited for this campaign because it kicks off our Do Good initiative as a team. We have a lot of charities and fundraisers that we are going to be involved in down the pipeline, including:

  • Holiday Canned Drive – SGN partners with Maker Studios and pledges to collect over 400 pounds of items for the LA Food Bank.
  • Shoes for the Homeless – SGN Culver City will host a shoe drive in December to collect gently used shoes to help the homeless and less fortunate. All of the shoes stay in local communities so it’s a great way to work with neighboring organizations like Shoes For the Homeless.
  • Ballona Creek Renaissance – SGN Culver City partners with BCR, a Culver City-based non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating the long-term renewal of Ballona Creek and its watershed.
  • An Hour of Code – SGN offices host an #HourOfCode, the largest learning event in history.
