Covered: 12 Dad Bloggers perform Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' THRIFT SHOP to raise funds for Movember #MovemberDadsWritten by James Zahn
For the past month, I, along with over 70 fellow Dad Bloggers have been working as a team to raise funds and awareness for men's health issues by growing moustaches in support of Movember (read my official announcement here). With over $13,000 donated thus far, half of which was thanks to a contribution from Dove Men+Care, we have one week left to reach our goal of $30,000. Currently, I rank lucky 13 on our team, with $180 generously contributed through friends of The Rock Father (thank you!). In an effort to amp things up a bit, my friend Tommy over at Life of Dad put together a group of a dozen Dad Bloggers (the #MovemberDads) to perform an a cappella cover version of "Thrift Shop" - the massive hit by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (who will be performing at The AMAs later tonight). Check it out below, and keep an eye out for yours truly popping up on guitar for the chorus...
