We all love competitions at Kotaku, and we're easily the best at it, so how about we focus our mad competition skills for a good cause by raising money for Movember? We've created a Kotaku page for Movember so that we can all raise money as a team and, in addition, we've attached ourselves to Activision Australia, who have committed to adding $1000 to the team who raises the most money. Currently we're up against The Official PlayStation Magazine Australia — come on guys, we can totally smash these guys!
All you have to do is head to our page and register for Team Kotaku. From that point, all the money you raise individually will be added to our total as a team. If we managed to beat out the other teams registered at Activision Australia's Modern Warfare network we get to add another $1000 to that total.
And obviously, it's for a good cause — raising vital funds for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and depression. This is our chance to do our bit together as the awesome community we are.
So, let's do it folks! Tomorrow is the first of November. Register now, start promoting the page and getting donations, start tomorrow clean shaven and grow some incredible facial fair.
Here's some inspiration.
I'm going to be going for a Captain Price-style number, since I'm a little bit ginger and all. I'll post up a weekly update of my progress each Monday, and if you guys join in and send my pics of your progress, I'll post them up as well!
Good luck folks! And don't forget — register here, join the team and let's get this going! Retweet this, post on your Facebook, and let's recruit as many people as possible!
EDIT: Activision has informed us that there are some copies of Modern Warfare 3 up for grabs for those that raise the most money!
