Finance Fox Weekend Recap – Movember and Financial Literacy Month

movember, finance fox,

Another edition of Finance fox Weekend Recap and another month gone by. We’re into November and the first week hasn’t even passed, but I can foresee that it’ll be a busy month ahead. Aside from my brother’s birthday (a big event in our family), it’s also Movember and Financial Literacy Month. Yeah, November will be a busy month, but a fun one at the same time. Never the less, I love keeping busy and being challenged, so I signed up to participate in Movember and also blog for Financial Literacy Month.


Joining Movember is something that’s been one my mind for the last couple of years. I don’t know anybody first hand that’s been affected by prostate cancer (knock on wood), but it’s a good cause and I love participating in fundraisers like this. It’s important to be armed with knowledge of the impact of flaunting a mustache and funds raised is having on men’s health. Movember to date has invested over $64 million to prostate cancer initiatives across Canada in the areas of awareness and education, research and survivorship.

Learn more about the impact of Movember’s awareness and education globally on Movember Canada. For those of you who are curious and would possibly like to support me and donate, check out my Movember page: Finance Fox’s MoBo Page.

Financial Literacy Month

From one good cause to another, November is also Financial Literacy Month.Yup, it’s that important that there’s a whole month dedicated to it.  No, it’s not quite important enough to warrant a day off work.  I guess that ranks it somewhere between groundhog day and Canada day. Never the less, Glenn from Life Insurance Canada hit me up and asked whether I’d like to participate in Financial Literacy Month by writing a post. And without any hesitation I decided to be part of this year’s Financial Literacy Month.

For those of you in the personal finance community, if you’re interested in joining and blogging for Financial Literacy Month, check out Blog For Financial Literacy and sign up. There are some great prizes up for grabs, but more importantly you’ll get mentioned and linked back from 3 top quality Canadian financial websites.
