Movember

The Movember Sacrifice (by [xntrek])

Hi all,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I’ve shaved clean and am growing a moustache from scratch.

That’s right I’m bringing the Mo back because I’m passionate about changing the state of men’s health.

Male health is a major issue, did you know:
1.Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 6 years less than females.
2.Every year in Australia 2,700 men die of prostate cancer – more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.
3.Depression affects 1 in 6 men…Most don’t seek help.

Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide. Rates of suicide are more than double the national road toll. Help me change the face of men’s health by sponsoring my mo.

Please go to www.movember.com.au/au/sponsor, enter my Rego number which is 24400 and your credit card details. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.

The money raised by Movember will be used to change the face of men’s health by creating awareness and funding research into prostate cancer and male depression.

Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partè where men will be parading their Mo on the cat walk for a chance to be crowned the Man of Movember.

More info is available at www.movember.com.au

Movember is proudly grown by Motorola, Polaroid, Remington and VB.

Movember is proud partners with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue – the national depression initiative

Cheers!

One thought on “Movember”

  1. From the Movember Mail-outs:

    Movember 2006 has been an amazing success!

    Together we have been able to raise over 5.3 MILLION DOLLARS in Australia and $750,000 in New Zealand and an enormous amount of awareness for men’s health issues.

    There have been fantastic stories about Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the country and every person involved in Movember should be proud of the achievement we have all been part of.
    We have announced the final winners and for your viewing pleasure the Gala Parte’ and Mo Town Parte’ photos are now available at http://movember.com.

    David St. John who raised the most amount of money as an individual has donated his prize – a trip for two to the South of France and the ultimate Formula 1 driving experience back to be auctioned on ebay with all proceeds going to Movember.

    Auction closes on the 22-Dec-06 12:20:35 AEDST

    From everyone at Movember, Thank You! for helping to change the face of men’s health.
