Munzvember Donation Update!


On 12/3/2013, Munzee will donate $15,000 to the V Foundation in honor of the 13,712 Munzvember pins purchased by our players worldwide. Originally, we promised that all profits would be donated directly to the foundation (after business costs, Paypal fees). However, with the amazing efforts and sales we’ve received from Cyber Munzday, we’re covering the business expenses and pushing all sales directly to the V Foundation!

We’re so touched by the amazing charity of all our players, and we’re happy we’ve chosen a foundation that resonates deeply with the Munzee community. We’d like to share two small stories out of many from our player community:

From player WE4NCS:

I am so very proud to see that the Munzvember proceeds from Munzee are going to the Jimmy V Foundation. Jim Valvano was a successful basketball coach at my alma mater NC State University here in Raleigh. My username is an FCC amateur radio callsign but it means We are 4 NC State.

I’ll be deploying some real Munzee near the JimmyV HQ to commemorate the munzee contribution.

I knew Jim in a passing way in that he was always around town as well as his wife Pam. His 1983 NCAA National Basketball Championship was remarkable for many reasons if you know the story. He was such a motivator and had gregarious outgoing personality. His next career at ESPN was where he furthered his legend and his 1993 ESPY speech immortalized him. He passed away just two months after making this speech.

I went to his burial here in Raleigh and wake they held on campus at NC State. I have visited grave several times since. There is no better way to contribute these proceeds than to the JimmyV Foundation.

WE4NCS deployed this Munzee in the parking lot of the V Foundation:

And here’s an awesome short note from Paul:

I was delighted to learn about the awesome contribution to the JimmyV Foundation. This organization is special to me for several reasons.

Everybody in our community knew this inspiring individual who lived and worked among us. He and my late wife were fighting their battles with cancer at the same time. I’ll always be thankful for what a great encouragement his interviews and articles were to her (and to me).

The JimmyV headquarters in Cary, NC is just a mile from my real estate office. It’s marked with a very modest sign, but each time I drive down that street, I salute it out of appreciation for the men and women who continue in his Spirit, today. Thank you, Munzee staff, for supporting the V Foundation in this important way.

Best regards,
Paul (PFF)

We think this small sample of kind words resonates as the voice of our amazing Munzee community.  And again, thank you so much for your support of Munzvember!

Team Munzee makes a Difference in Movember!

November 1st is the official start of Movember, and the freshly shorn men of Team Munzee will be growing a mustache to raise funds and awareness for Men’s Health.  It’s going to be a “hairy” journey, and we want you to be a part of it!

What’s Movember?  Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women worldwide join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health. Men grow a Mo (moustache) for 30 days essentially turning themselves into walking, talking billboards of cancer awareness!  Ladies, you’re not left out, women can support a Mo’ by becoming a Mo’ Sista and share awareness as well!  A moustache is the mark of a man, and today it is a symbol to spark conversations about important health issues.  Movember, an official global charity, supports world-class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer.

Team Munzee has started an official team on the Movember site, and we’re fighting for our right to change the face of men’s health.  Join Team Munzee and register for Movember on  Guys, pledge to grow a Mo’ today!  Ladies, join the team to support Team Munzee’s Mo’ Bros, by becoming a Mo’ Sista!  We’re really excited about Movember, and would love to see the Munzee community come together for such a great cause.

Movember is a worldwide movement, originating in Australia, so Team Munzee would love to have representatives from every Munzee nation involved this year! If you’d like to join us, click the following link to join Team Munzee, then don’t forget to start Movember clean shaven :

(Once you register with and join Team Munzee, you’ll find more details on how to get involved.  This includes getting your friends, family, and community to donate, and how to donate directly to the Movember cause.)

The fun of Movember doesn’t stop there.  Team Munzee is pulling out all stops to get the Munzee community involved with Movember.  We want to prove to the world that the fun of Munzee isn’t just getting outdoors and having some healthy fun, it’s also about creating a healthy cancer-free world.

-Post pictures of your Mo’ progress on Pinterest and Instagram!  You can tag us via @Munzeeapp and be sure to use the hashtag #Movember to help spread awareness.  Pinterest pins will be added to our #Movember Pin Board on Pinterest, and we’ll randomly give “Likes” and shout-outs (Tweets) for our Instagram friends!

We’re also selling Mustache Pins! Mustache Pins will be $1.00 (USD) each.  100% of the profits for each Mustache Pin sale will go towards a non-specific charity once Movember is over!


The Mustache Pins will be available in the Munzee Store November 1st through November 30th.  Pins will also display on the Munzee map from November 1st through November 30th only (they will be archived on December 1).  So purchase as soon as possible to get some great ‘stache exposure.  Our Mustache Pins will have the same amount of points as regular Virtual Munzees, and follow the same in-game rules.

We’re honored by all of our players who are committed to Movember, and that’s why any player that purchases a Mustache Pin will be awarded a “Munzvember” icon.  We’re also offering perks for players that go above and beyond, awarding special badges for the amount of pins purchased towards the Movember campaign.  Here’s the badge icon hierarchy:

1-Basic stache

25-Hulk Hogan

50- Fu-Man Chu

75- Rollie Fingers

100- Tom Selleck

Everyone here at Team Munzee is passionate about Movember, and we want the awesome Munzee community of players to get involved.  We’ve read countless stories and met so many of you who have amazing stories of Munzee changing your health. One of the many things we’ve learned is that Munzee offers a fun, healthy experience for the entire family.  Our passion for the outdoor game experience fits right in-line with healthy causes like Movember, and we want to prove it to the world.  Show your support for Movember and Men’s Health.
