We thought we were done hearing about the dad bod, but that won't be the case if Matt Villano, a father with some extra cushion in his midsection, gets his way. Villano created the Dad Bod Challenge, a riff on the hugely successful Ice Bucket Challenge, that raises money for The Movember Foundation. The charity donates funds to variety of men’s health issues.
Want to get in on the challenge?
- Take a pic in a speedo (or whatever clothing shows off your dad-bod figure).
- Share the photo on social with the hashtag #dadbod.
- Tag other people and challenge them to join in.
- Donate to The Movember Foundation (the important part).
Need inspiration? Here are a few pics of Villano showing off his dad bod:
Embrace The #Dadbod Challenge—a social media campaign that aims to celebrate the male body in all its glory and support a good cause. Every day for the next month I’ll share a pic like this one and donate to @Movember, the only global charity focused solely on men’s health. Then I’ll tag five dads whom I challenge to do the same. Today I call out @petehalvorsen, @aubreymccoy, @tiesandfries, @mrtripstyler, and @dad_beets. Please share! Please donate! And for more information, please visit link in profile.
