That’s what November Movember at Atlassian has been all about. A record 40 Atlassians grew a moustache to show their support and raise awareness for men’s health issues, raising $45,982 along the way.


Has Scott started a new trend?

At the beginning of the month, Atlassian Co-founder Scott Farquhar set the Atlassian Mo Bro’s a challenge.

If you raise $15K I’ll get a mohawk

Well we raised over $15K with a few days to spare, so he raised the bar.

If you raise $20K I’ll dye my mohawk blue

Little did he know we would end the month just a few dollars shy of $23,000! Thanks to Atlassian matching our efforts, we are stoked to have raised $45,982 for the Movember Foundation.

So, yesterday afternoon at Atlassian’s Headquarters in Sydney, Scott went under the knife in front of the entire office…

Scott, I’m sure I’m speaking for all of Atlassian when I say, “you are a dead set legend”. Thank you for being such a great sport and for inspiring so many people to donate what they could to help change the face of men’s health.

Tell Scott how much you love what he’s done and help spread the word.

By the way, did I mention that just a few hours after this appointment with his barber Scott accepted the the award for ‘Australian Exporter of the Year for 2010 – ICT’ from the Australian Minister of Trade. See if you can spot him…
