Harris & Associates’ employee-owners joined forces, facial hair-growing forces that is, to support the annual Movember campaign that has become popular and widely-known in recent years.

Employee-owners participated in the company-wide event by either growing mustaches or donating to the company donation page. The Hairy Harris team of 15 employee-owners raised money and periodically updated the company on the status of their facial hair-growing progress. One participant allowed fellow employee-owners to vote on a particular style of mustache for him to grow (e.g. the "Tom Selleck 'stache") so long as they gave a $5 donation to his page.

Harris successfully donated more than $1,000 to the Movember campaign. Donate to our team page here: http://moteam.co/hairy-harris.
