Well, Movember has come to an end and we wanted to share with you how our Mo Bros’ moustaches turned out! We’ve got some pretty rad ones (though we aren’t sure how sad we are to see them go)!

It was for a great cause and our Mo Bros raised over $825!

A Thanksgiving Thanks

Thanksgiving is one of those special times that make you stop and think about all the things you’re grateful for…

Family by your side supporting you unconditionally, friends who make you laugh and keep you sane, a clean bill of health, yummy food on the table. Sometimes it’s the simplest of things. A great burrito at your favorite dive, a drive to town with the windows down, or a stupid, funny text from an old pal.

At BookRenter, we are thankful for lots of things, but most of all, we are thankful for you. It’s you, our wonderful customers who joined our mission to make education more affordable for all students, and made this journey possible.

Thank you for believing in us! We wish you and your families a warm and super-filling Thanksgiving.

Your Friends at BookRenter

BookRenter’s “Mo Bros” Grow Moustaches in Support of Movember

Did you know that 1 in 6 American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime?

Here at BookRenter, we feel strongly about supporting important causes. From donating a book to First Book for every online order to wearing pink bracelets in support of breast cancer awareness last month, BookRenter cares. This month, we’ve set our sights on Movember.

Movember is an organization that raises awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically cancers affecting men. Movember directly partners with the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG. Throughout the month of November, many of the men of BookRenter (known affectionately as “Mo Bros”) will be growing a moustache and raising funds with pledges of support. Keeping a stiff upper lip as well are the “Mo Sistas,” women will be sporting fake moustaches to join in the fun for the cause.

Paolo Resmini, a senior software engineer at BookRenter, is leading this effort. He says, “It’s good to follow up breast cancer awareness month with initiatives focused on men’s health.” Prostate cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers in men and BookRenter wants to help bring awareness. “Plus,” Resmini added, “Any excuse to grow a moustache is a good thing too!”

You can join BookRenter’s national team by clicking this link and registering today! Stay tuned for “Moustashe Monday’s” this month, and of course, the  “Best Moustashe” winner sometime around December 1st!
