You may have heard the news, but for those who haven’t:
Fillit is a proud official partner of Movember!

Don’t know what this means? No fear, we’ve got the FAQ.

What is Movember?

The Movember foundation is a global men’s health charity that raises funds for the full month of November (or “Movember” - if you will) to support innovative, breakthrough research and programmes allowing men to live happier, healthier and longer lives. Movember focuses on raising funds and awareness for the biggest health issues facing men including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

Initially, Movember challenged men to solicit sponsorship and sport a ‘tache for the month of November. This year, Movember are asking people to get together and HOST a fun event and donate the proceeds. (Learn more about the history of Movember: https://ie.movember.com/about/history)

Over time, Movember evolved. There are tonnes of ways to advocate and fundraise - so pop over to Movember.com to learn about events in Ireland.

How is Fillit helping?

Fillit is the perfect partner to offer cool and unique spaces for people to HOST their events. We will be opening our platform to anyone who wants to throw an event or fundraiser, and encouraging Landlords to offer their spaces at a discounted rate for the month of November.  We’ll soon have a Movember section and filters on our site to avail of the featured spaces.

What initial events can I attend in Fillit Spaces?

Some of our kick-off events include:

Yoga at the Powerscourt Theatre
Mr. Yoga (Personal Yogi to the likes of President Michael D. Higgins) will be holding a yoga sesh in the Powerscourt Theatre. Spots are limited for this exclusive taste of zen - so crawl, bend, and pose your way over to our picatic page to reserve your mat.

Big Mickey’s Pop-Up Sausage Stand in Temple Bar

The Gentlemen’s Academy Mo-vie Night at Denzille Cinema

Sit back and relax with an evening of fine cocktails, comradery, and a private viewing of fine flicks in the private Denzille Cinema. See more details of the event. 

How do I join the Fillit team in fundraising?

Fillit’s team can be found at http://moteam.co/fillit. Simply join the team, sign up for Movember, and start growin’ that ‘tache or throwin’ that party. All funds you raise will be broadcast to the team, so we can all cheer you on!

I’m a Landlord, what am I committing to?

Very little, but your participation is meaningful. By opting in to become a Movember Landlord, we ask that you offer your space at a discounted rate of your choice.  Your  space will then be  featured as a Movember space - this means fundraisers looking for spaces to host their events will likely pitch to you first.

You still retain control of your space, and you still have the opportunity to accept or decline the pitch depending on whether it suits or not. You can adjust your rate and discount depending on the event.

And that’s about it! If you have any questions, hit us up on the little chatbox to the right or send us a Tweet at @gofillit. Stay tuned for more information in the days ahead and keep your eyes peeled for Movember fundraisers in your area.

Cheers!

The Fillit Team
