Well, as some of you may be aware it's MOvember and a few of us in the office have been joining in. From the spring lambs with barely a hair to show, to the Elders of Code with full-on face furniture.
We've not shaved them since November the first, and they won't be leaving til December the first! Come the first of December, we'll shave off these majestic mos and we'll post pictures of the grand de-tashing here to show you all our efforts.
Movember is all about raising money for men's cancers, and raising awareness. Sad to say it, but us blokes don't go to the doctors as often as we should, nor do we discuss our family history like supposed to either. The idea of having something in-your-face like a moustache is to prompt questions and a discussion about what Movember is, and thus raising awareness.
Taken from http://uk.movember.com/about/ - Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
The funds raised in the UK support the number one and two male specific cancers - prostate and testicular cancer. The funds raised are directed to programmes run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and the Institute of Cancer Research. Together, these channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programmes in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
