Buy Idaho member Chris Bentley, from The Barber Story, is participating in Movember! Check out his blog and upcoming event to raise awareness for Men's health during Movember. The following is his letter to you:
"Seasons greetings fellow Buy Idaho members!
My name is Chris Bentley, and I am a barber who runs a business called The Barber Story. For the past 8 years, I have shaved my mustache in solidarity with the Movember Foundation to raise awareness for some of the leading health concerns that are causing men to die too young. Movember is an organization that I have found an incredible passion for volunteering on behalf of, especially given their shift in recent years to focus on suicide prevention. For the month of November, as a barber, I have been offering complimentary hot towel shaves with any $15 donation made to The Barber Story's donation page on Movember.com, or with any donation made directly through Combat Fitness / SBGi. Presently, we're about $300 total into our $1,000 goal and this is where I am asking for your help in reaching that goal.
On December 4th, The Barber Story is partnering with Spacebar Arcade and Woodland Empire to host an evening of Movember celebration that will include best mustache of Movember, men's health & mustache related trivia, as well as great local beers. In between trivia rounds, we will be fundraising and raffling off various prizes. I would like to extend an opportunity to have your products and services featured in the raffle giveaway.
100% of the money raised from the raffle will be donated to the Movember foundation in a final effort to hit our fundraising goal. If you have any further questions, or are interested in joining the list of donors, please reach out to me via e-mail. For those curious, I have included a handful of links at the bottom of this message. Thank you all for your consideration, and have a great holiday season.

The Idaho Horror Film Festival
The Idaho Horror Film Festival is a non-profit international film exhibition whose mission is to shine a spotlight on Idaho’s emerging filmmakers. The genre of horror is the common thread that has stitched itself into the fabric of the film-making community. Through the mediums of independent film, food, music, literature and art, we strive to expand the cultural experience within Boise’s vibrant community. We aim to develop a supportive framework for Idaho’s emerging filmmakers with the mission of providing more access to resources and education for individuals wanting to explore the medium of film. By strengthening the film making community in Idaho, we will fan the flames of creativity and set Idaho’s film industry ablaze.
The 3rd Annual Idaho Horror Film Festival is coming back to Boise
October 13, 14 & 15, 2016!
