English Courses Provider Kaplan Raises Thousands for Movember

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Dec. 4, 2012) -

Editors note: There is one photo associated with this press release.

Kaplan International Colleges, a leading provider of English courses, are delighted to have raised a significant amount of money for the Movember cause.

Kaplan Mo Bros, the official network for Kaplan staff and friends worldwide, have so far managed to generate over £4,000 in donations for Movember, which aims to raise awareness and money for men's health issues.

Each Mo Bro has sacrificed their personal style and sex appeal by attempting to grow a moustache during November to the standards normally reserved for the likes of Burt Reynolds and Tom Selleck.

The winning team within the company was the Kaplan Tache-Mahals, which included employees from the sales and marketing department, who managed to contribute over £900 to the grand total.

Chase Richards, Kaplan's SEO Executive and Tache-Mahals brother, said: "It was tough going, but I made it through. Growing a moustache was a fun experience for a great cause, and I was glad to take part. We raised a nice sum of money and next year I hope to double it."

The 30 days of Movember are officially over and the Kaplan team may have shaven off their moustaches, however, supporters can continue to donate to the cause by visiting the donation page by clicking the link here.

Some students at Kaplan's language schools across the world, including Vancouver, Salisbury and Brisbane, also took part in the challenge of growing a moustache whilst improving their language skills by learning English.
