Movember has finally come to a close and we’re really proud of our inaugural team Eli, Peter, Konstantine, Neale, Phil, Reggie, Zac, Max, Rob & Charlotte Jenkins that committed to this amazing cause and went the distance. Through their hard work and hustle our Mo’s of Gotstyle raised $1,411, in the month of November. That being said Movember is part of a movement that goes beyond just the month of November and is something we can all participate in all year around. Advocating for men’s health and encouraging men to continue the conversation is what we truly want to promote. We hope that you’ll keep the movement alive as we band together to change the face of men’s health in this country.
While half the city was hitting the malls this weekend for BlackFriday sales, the other half descended upon the Distillery District for their icon Christmas Market. If you’ve never experienced the Market we strongly suggest making you way down here ASAP!
Reminiscent of a traditional European style Christmas Market the Distillery areas transforms into a space fit for the whole family. With daily live performances, artisan boutiques, culinary delights for every pallet and obviously some good ole retail therapy, there is plenty to do and experience.
Come down, hang out, have a mulled wine, or two and get in to the Christmas spirit!
The market is open:
- Friday November 29 to Sunday December 15
- Monday to Friday: Noon to 9pm (We’re open 11am – 9pm)
- Saturday and Sunday: 10am to 9pm (Same!)
Being a Filipino, I was deeply saddened by the tragedy in the Philippines. I still have a lot of relatives that live there that were personally affected by Typhoon Haiyan. At Gotstyle, since we are a family business (my brother Victor, cousin Reggie and my mom all help out) we will be donating a percentage of our sales in support of the World Visions’s Disaster Relief Fund, along with a personal donation, which will be matched by the Canadian government. We are also promoting the upcoming the Canada for Philippines Benefit Concert, in partnership with Kol Hope Foundation for Children, to raise funds and give hope to the millions of people, in support of World Vision’s Philippines Disaster Relief Fund. – Melissa Austria (Founder of Gotstyle)
Canada for Philippines Benefit Concert is a star studded evening of music and hope, featuring Toronto’s Original Miss Saigon, Ma-Anne Dionisio, Canadian Idol finalist Martha Joy, Broadway Star, Cornelia Luna, highly-acclaimed performers, Toto Bansil, and Emilio Zarris, Jocelyn Escutin-Seranilla, Arnold Galoyo, Karen Tan, and Ken de los Santos, Viva Records’s artist Chiqui Pineda, and many more, with special performances by award winning Canadian Singer-songwriter Amy Sky.

Today we as Canadians collectively honour and reflect on the incredible sacrifices made by the amazing men, women and children of the armed forces. We not only remember those that have died in the line of duty but also those currently fighting to preserve our way of life.
In honour of these brave soldiers and their families we’ve partnered up with one of Canada’s leading charities, True Patriot Love, to help raise money for military families in need. Through our LupulStyle initiative for every vote you make we will donate $1 towards the TPL foundation. So far with your help we’ve raised over $6,000!
