Time To Grow That Mo
Okay, honestly, the only Mo (mustache) that I'll be sporting around this month is one that's fake and probably propped up by a stick or something.
But for you guys out there . . . consider sporting one for this great cause!
Movember, formally known as November, is now in full swing for the 2011 season.
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.1 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and Ireland. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, and to act on that knowledge, thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.
In 2010, over 64,500 US Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board, raising $7.5 million USD.
This is my third year to participate - the first year was the year that my husband, Charles was diagnosed with prostate cancer. See our story here: Our Life After Three Words - You Have Cancer.
We'd really appreciate you helping us in our fund raising and spreading the Mo love! If you'd like to donate please visit my Mo Page. Oh, and tell your friends and family too!
