We are halfway through our Movember fund-raising drive and thanks to the generosity of many people we have raised over $500 so far – but we still have a long way to go.
We are very happy to announce that Darren over at The 7 Line has joined our effort to fight prostate cancer. Darren recently restocked the classic Bobby Valentine fake mustache tees and for the remainder of Movember (excluding Black Friday sales) 20% of all sales of this tee shirt will be donated to The Blue Cap Army’s Movember campaign.
Buy a tee shirt and help us fight prostate cancer.
Or you can also donate directly to The Blue Cap Army by clicking here - no amount is too small.
