Movember Mo

November 20, 2011

Well – I started growing my Mo on a pristine top lip on 1st Movember.

Thus far only seen by my family, friends and colleagues [plus lot’s of innocent passers-by of course, who can’t claim damages for trauma because they don’t know who I am] it’s now time for me to go MO2.0  [or is that 2.Mo?] and get out there on the social web. Please visit my personal page and make a donation at http://mobro.co/grimbold

 

In the words of the Mo-ganisers, far more eloquent than me, here’s why you should, and what to do:

It’s Movember, the month formerly known as November, now dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health; specifically prostate and testicular cancer. I’m donating my top lip to the cause for 30 days in an effort to help change the face of men’s health. My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men.

Why am I so passionate about men’s health?
* 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
* This year 37,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
* 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
* 26% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women

I’m asking you to support my Movember campaign by making a donation by either:
*Donating online at: http://mobro.co/grimbold
*If you want to go old school you can write a cheque payable to ‘Movember’, reference my name and Registration Number 1067820 and send it to: Movember Europe, PO Box 68600, London, EC1P 1EF

If you’d like to find out more about the type of work you’d be helping to fund by supporting Movember, take a look at the Programmes We Fund section on the Movember website: http://uk.movember.com/about

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men’s health.
