What’s cooler than being named a “Better Man” by Gentleman’s Quarterly and rubbing shoulders with Ashton Kutcher, Jimmy Fallon and more along the way? Um, nothing really. The high-profile magazine has opened up the application process for its “Better Man Better World Campaign,” and it’s up to you to nominate a (young) man that you value for his service to the community.
Until July 6, men’s lifestyle magazine, GQ, has teamed up with Movado to celebrate men around the country who have made a significant social impact in their communities through volunteering or charitable work. In its fourth year, The Better Man Better World campaign has seen applications from all types of male do-gooders, from water conservationists to disaster relief volunteers to school tutors. In 2010, Jimmie Briggs was awarded the top honor by GQ for his Man Up Campaign which focuses on ending global violence against women. And from the looks of it, this year’s batch of nominees are just as awesome.
So, it’s time to start thinking about why one of your friends, peers, mentors (or heck, even you) deserve a nomination. The man you suggest may be one of five finalists flown out to GQ’s ball in NYC to hang with Ashton Kutcher, Jimmy Fallon and David Arquette, who are all gentlemen in their own right, committed to causes like ending sex trafficking and hunger. And if your nominee is chosen as the ultimate gentleman, he’ll get $10,000 donated to a charity of his choice, a promotional feature in GQ, a jaw-dropping Movado watch and $2,000 in cash. See, it really does pay to be a gentleman.
