Movember is here

I am always on board with women's health issues, but equally important is men's health and my boss every year shaves off his facial hair on the last day of October and grows his mo back during November. He does this to raise money and awareness, so if there's a special guy (or maybe more) in your life, please read this after you finish ogling Tom Selleck and consider donating:

It's Movember and time to focus on men's health. To show my commitment, I'm donating my face to the cause by growing another moustache for the month of November, and need your support. The lack of facial hair has sparked conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male depression.
Why am I so passionate about men's health?
*1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
*This year 20,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
*1 in 8 men will experience depression in their lifetime
I'm asking you to support my Movember campaign by making a donation by either:
*Donating online at:
*Writing a cheque payable to 'Movember', referencing my Registration ID: 30321 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 60, East Melbourne, VIC, 8002
If you'd like to find out more about the type of work you'd be helping to fund by supporting Movember, take a look at the Programs We Fund section on the Movember website:
Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men's health.
