December 1 Is Good Men Day

Spread the word.

On 12/1 we’re spreading the word about The Good Men Project throughout the online universe.

As always, all proceeds from book and dvd sales go to The Good Men Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) charity that supports men and boys at risk. Charitable organizations such as The Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, Trinity Street Potential, Dorchester Youth Alternative Academy, and Exodus Transitional Community are direct beneficiaries.

And so, on Dec. 1, we’re asking people to help in the following ways:

1. Forward a friendly note about the project to your friends.

2. Post one of our photos on your Facebook Wall. Grab one from Flickr, here.

3. Post a book purchasing link to your Facebook status, your Twitterstream and your web site.

4. Invite your friends to become a fan of The Good Men Project on Facebook

5. Buy the book/DVD combination for yourself or as a gift for others this holiday season. All proceeds go to the nonprofit Good Men Foundation supporting men and boys at risk.

6. If you have a community, religious group, or other non-profit that would be interested in promoting the book or holding a book signing, please contact

Here is some information about the Book and DVD that you can forward to your friends:

The Good Men Project: Real Stories from the Front Lines of Modern Manhood, is a collection of first-person stories that comprise a book and documentary about what it means to be a man in America today. From Pulitzer winners to ex-cons, and pro Football Hall of Famers to just regular Joes, men share their defining challenges, losses and triumphs through honest and simple truths.

“The hope is that these stories will help men come to their own definition on what it means to be a good man,” says Tom Matlack, Good Men Project cofounder. “It’s about the deeper truth of how men think.”

The book and DVD of the film are available as a companion set, and all proceeds go to the Good Men Foundation, which supports organizations that help at-risk boys. It’s a perfect gift for the men in your life or the women who love them. Be a part of something – join what is fast becoming the centerpiece of a national discussion about what manhood means today.

Finally, on 12/1 but also throughout the rest of the holiday season, we’re inviting ANY like-minded charity organization to use our book/dvd as a fundraiser. This is how it works: We have a standard email blast asking people to buy our book/dvd bundle for the holidays. We can track sales by email blast using a promotional code. So we would split the profit on any bundles sold with your unique tracking code. Please contact Tom or Lisa at if you are interested in learning more about how this effort can help raise money your worthy enterprise or charities, and get the word out about good men.
