I’ve always admired TOMS’ commitment to community service. Their business model of donating one pair of shoes for each pair sold is commendable. This month, the brand has partnered with Movember to help promote men’s health.

Here are a few startling facts about prostate cancer:

  • 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime with one of 27+ types of prostate cancer.
  • Every 2.2 minutes, a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer.
  • Every 15.6 minutes, a man dies from prostate cancer.

I’m participating in Movember because my family has been affected by prostate cancer and I don’t want anyone else to lose a loved one prematurely. I urge you to support my Movember fundraising efforts, by donating to my campaign. My goal is to raise $2500 by the end of the month (you do not have to donate to participate in the giveaway).

To encourage your partication in Movember, I’d like to offer one Mocha Dad reader the opportunity to win a pair of TOMS shoes. TOMS has created a special line of Movember styles. The winner will receive one of the featured styles (based on size availability): http://www.toms.com/movember-styles?icid=us-land-102012_178

To enter the giveaway, answer the following question:

What steps can men take to live healthier lives?
