Happy Portsmouth 4sqDay 2013 Everyone

Just wanted to send a shout out to Portsmouth for celebrating 4sqDay again this year at Moxy. Moxy provided awesome Foursquare food and drink specials, Foursquare provided great swag, Crystal Paradis provided the four square game ball and chalk (#ballconfirmation! #chalkconfirmation!) and YOU all provided the good times and cheer. So, thank you!!

And even though we’re sad that we have to wait another year to celebrate 4sqDay again (as some of the Portsmouth 4sqDay party people are below), we ARE happy to announce that we will see you all again soon for #4sqFriday starting 5/10! We’ll be playing the game of four square on Friday evenings while the weather stays warm. So, stay tuned for more details at the hashtag and in the meantime, happy 4sqDay everyone!

Checkin-for-Charity: Raising Money for Movember at Portsmouth Mozcation

11/8 UPDATE: We blew past the 50 check-in cap last night, raising $1,600 at $32 per check-in!
More details to follow.

We’re keeping the tradition going from our previous checkin-for-charity events at Digital Portsmouth, Movembeer and the NHTweetUp SceneUp by doing it again this year at Mozcation Portsmouth at the Music Hall!

Join us and check in for charity in support of Movember at Mozcation Portsmouth 2012, taking place at the Music Hall on Wednesday, November 7 at 5:00pm. To participate, check-in on foursquare at The Music Hall during the event and for every person that checks in (up to a swarm badge – 50 people), a donation will be made to the Movember Foundation. Get everyone with you to check in on foursquare so we can raise the most money for Movember AND get a swarm badge!

Special thanks to our awesome donors, who so far have helped us secure $32 per check-in!

$32 per check in is killer but we’d LOVE to see more individuals, companies and organizations up the ante! Can we get to $33 or even $35? If you’d like to pledge any amount money per check in for up to 50 check ins, let us know by filling out our Mozcation Movember Fundraiser Pledge Form. We’re limiting this to the first 50 check-ins (which unlocks foursquare’s swarm badge for those in attendance), so if you pledge $1 per check in, the maximum donation you would make would be $50 if we got 50 check ins.

If you would like to join a Movember team and grow an awesome stache, please join the Swarthy Moustachios. If you are already on a team in NH, please join the state-wide NH Movember Network here: This will help you organize with other New Hampshire Mo Bros and Mo Sistas taking part!

Don’t forget to RSVP to the event: Mozcation Portsmouth 2012.

To pledge, visit our Movember Fundraiser Pledge Form.

movember-checkin-for-charity-mozcationWant to know more about Movember?

The Movember Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that runs the global men’s health initiative, Movember.

Each year, Movember, the month formerly known as November, is responsible for the sprouting of thousands of Mo’s (Australian slang for moustache, where the movement began) on men’s faces around the world, raising vital awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically for cancer affecting men.

Men who grow moustaches for the month of Movember, called Mo Bros, become walking, talking billboards for the cause, raising awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by getting friends and family to donate to their Mo-growing efforts. The rules are simple: register online at and start the month of Movember clean-shaven, then grow a moustache for 30 days. Last year, 255,722 men and women across the globe raised $40 million (USD) – all through the power of the Mo.

The money raised as a result of Movember is channeled by our beneficiary partners into a number of world class and innovative research, support, education, and awareness initiatives. Movember funds raised in the US benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation ( and LIVESTRONG (
