Throughout the month of November thousands of men (and some women!) are growing their facial hair to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues through Movember:
“The funds raised support the number one and two male specific cancers – prostate and testicular cancer. The funds raised are directed to programmes run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research. Together, these channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programmes in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.”
My lovely brother Alex is taking part and growing a moustache to fundraise for the charity. He says his ‘tache will give him a whole new image: “Any excuse to dress up as a Victorian and break out the Monocle…”. You can check out his Mo-Space and here’s photos of his progress so far:
He’s already raised $25 only 3 days into the month and I’ve donated, so now its your turn. Please donate here http://us.movember.com/mospace/1533736
As well as the normal card-payment donations, you can also donate by Paypal, so if you’ve got any spare bits of cash lying around in your Paypal account (I always end up with an odd 1.73 in my account..!) put it to good use and donate to Movember. Here’s the link again: http://us.movember.com/mospace/1533736
I’ll post a pic of the finished article at the end of the month and I’m hoping to see a very looong moustache, possibly with a little bit of wax in it to create the perfect Victorian gentleman’s curled ends!
Best of luck to everyone taking part in Movember, you’re going to be looking pretty dapper by the end of the month! Keep growing!
