November is going to be an itchy, hairy month at ngd Agency!
The Mo, slang for moustache, and November come together each year for Movember.
The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. It’s all to raise awareness and funds for cancers that affect men.
The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia. The plan was simple – to bring the moustache back as a bit of a joke and do something for men’s health. No money was raised in 2003, but things have grown a bit and last year over one million donors raising £26 Million for charities around the world.
The funds raised through Movember’s UK campaign benefit the The Prostate Cancer Charity (TPCC), the UK’s leading prostate cancer charity.
I’m doing this as my father has recently beaten prostate cancer and men are often too shy or proud to get things checked out! So anything to raise awareness and funding has got to be a good thing. I’ll be doing regular photo updates on this blog throughout the month to share my embarrassment for your amusement! In return if you think that this is a worthy cause, please go to my Mo Space and make a donation.
A big thank you to all those that do in advance
