why our moustache waxes are named primary and secondary

Why is Can You Handlebar wax named Primary and Secondary?

BY Doug Geiger

Where We Got The Names for our Moustache Waxes: Primary and Secondary

Our trip to Rwanda

Last month my wife and I visited Rwanda to spend time with our sponsored girl Agnes. We sponsor her through an organization called African New Life Ministries (ANLM). As many of you may know, Rwanda is still recovering from a horrific genocide that occurred over three months in 1994. While we were listening to "I saw the Sign" by Ace of Bass or "All I Wanna Do" by Cheryl Crow, a million were listening to radio broadcasts that galvanized a nation into killing their neighbors, spouses and "friends." That is the sad part, and is definitely part of the story, but that isn't the whole story.

The country is rebuilding and it is really incredible to see the hope and ingenuity. A country that used to be mostly either Hutus or Tutsis now has only Rwandans. A country that used to be a battlefield the size of Maryland is now becoming a country committed to getting rid of corruption and rebuilding their society. They could teach us a thing or two about forgiveness and hope.

One of the coolest things we saw was the thirst for education. In the Rwandan school system, the primary school goes through grade six (Primary) and the next step is a secondary school that also goes through grade six (Secondary). So, Primary is tough, but Secondary is a little tougher. Get it?

Let's get really literal here: each can of Can You Handlebar moustache wax supports the great work of Africa New Life Ministries and their commitment to building up the next generation of Rwandans. We hope that that each time you pull out your tin to tame your whiskers you realize you are putting hope into a country and taming poverty and illiteracy. Thanks.
