I've been involved with Movember for a few years now. Like any hipster worth his weight in obscure albums - I was into it WAY before it was cool. Found out about it through an Australian blogger - well, bacuse her husband was doing it and I thought is sounded fun. Turns out it raises money for a good cause as well - who knew?
Anyway, last year I was on the local committee and this year I am honoured to be the Movember chair for London, Ontario. I would sure like you to be part of it - it's a LOT of fun and as previously mentioned ... a GREAT cause.
Wait you have questions?!!! What's that? What is Movember? Well, you asked for it:
MOVEMBER IS THE MONTH FORMERLY KNOWN AS NOVEMBER, WHERE MEN AND WOMEN ACROSS THE GLOBE JOIN TOGETHER TO RAISE AWARENESS AND FUNDS FOR MEN’S HEALTH ISSUES- SPECIFICALLY PROSTATE CANCER. MEN GROW A MO (MOUSTACHE) FOR 30 DAYS TO BECOME WALKING, TALKING BILLBOARDS FOR OUR MEN’S HEALTH CAUSES, SPECIFICALLY PROSTATE CANCER.
MEN WHO SUPPORT MOVEMBER, CALLED MO BROS, BEGIN BY REGISTERING AT MOVEMBER.COM. THESE BRAVE PIONEERS START MOVEMBER 1ST CLEAN-SHAVEN, THEN GROW AND GROOM THEIR MO FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH, TAKING PRIDE IN THE MAJESTY OF THEIR MOUSTACHE.
WOMEN WHO SUPPORT MOVEMBER, CALLED MO SISTAS, ALSO START BY REGISTERING AT MOVEMBER.COM. MO SISTAS CHAMPION THE MO BY SUPPORTING THEIR MO BROS, ORGANIZING EVENTS, RAISING FUNDS, LEADING A TEAM, AND SPREADING THE IMPORTANT MESSAGE OF MEN’S HEALTH. WOMEN DON`T GROW A MO BUT, LIKE MO BROS, THEY HELP START CONVERSATIONS ABOUT MEN’S HEALTH. PROSTATE CANCER IS A DISEASE THAT IS 90% CURABLE IF CAUGHT IN TIME SO HAVING THESE CONVERSATIONS AND RAISING AWARENESS IS KEY.
We clear? Cool. Sorry about yelling like that but I didn't want you to miss anything. Well, if you're interested in joining my team - I certainly would LOVE to have you. The Mo' the merrier! You can join my team here: MoLdnOnt. Already have a team? Well, if you're with me here in London why not join the network? (HERE) Trust me, you'll have fun, meet some great people ... it's all good.
I'm personally dedicating this year's efforts to the late Jack Layton. So, who are you growing for? Hit me below and see you during moustache season!
