Movember is a great initiative that raises awareness and promotes services relating to Men’s Health, in particular prostate cancer and depression related illness. In 2010 tragically more than 3,300 men will die as a direct result of prostate cancer and 1 in 8 men will experience depression in their lifetime.
The idea is to start on November 1st clean shaven and then grow a moustache during the month of November or Movember 🙂 You then recruit people to sponsor your mo-gress by donating to the Movember Foundation. Donations are tax deductible.
As a bloke, a husband, a dad and a pastor, I’m keenly aware of men’s health issues. Both physical and spiritual. Don’t be slack and lazy in your responsibility to care for your health – physical AND spiritual.
Growing the moustache is fun. Cancer and depression are not! Why not get behind this initiative and donate to my mo-gress this year?
