Moustache + November = MOVEMBER

movember1Hi there,

I just wanted to post a note about something that is very important to me. I would like to apologize in advance if you receive this more than once (in different groups) but I wanted to spread the word.

Here is my story.

My husband is partaking in what is now called ‘Movember’. For the month of November he will be growing a mustache. Unfortunately for me, due to his rugged Scottishness, I break out into hives when I kiss him, if he’s not clean-shaven.

Alas, it is for a good cause! His mustache is for prostate cancer awareness. Should you wish to donate money to his cause, please see the information below. If you would like to sponsor him, I believe there is another link but I can’t be too sure – email my husband for more details.

For those of you who support the cause, and want to see him bear his mustache – please feel free to check the links below… For those who feel sorry for me and my unkissable ways – I’ll take donations too – money or smooches, I won’t complain!

Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) Danny Brown is growing a Moustache to help the fight against prostate cancer and I’m helping him raise funds and awareness because I’m into guys tackling their own health issues.

You can donate to his moustache by either:

1. Clicking this link and donating online using your credit card or PayPal account
2. Writing a cheque payable to the ‘Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada’, referencing his Registration Number 1810431 and mailing it to:

Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada
Attn: Movember
145 Front Street East
Suite 306
Toronto Ontario M5A 1E3

Donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.

The money raised by Movember is donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada who will use the funds to create awareness and fund research across the country into prevention, detection and treatment, with a goal to ending the threat of prostate cancer.

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at:
ca.movember.com/outcomes/content/Fundraising-Outcomes/

Did you know…
• Every year around 24,700 Canadian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 4,300 die of the disease, making it the number one cancer threat to Canadian men.
• 1 in 7 men will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime.
• All men over the age of 40 are potentially at risk and should talk to their doctor about the disease and early detection. Prostate cancer is 95% curable if detected and treated early.
Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you’ll need to purchase a ca.movember.com/galatickets/index.php

Thanks for your support.

A note from my husband personally:

Hi everyone,

Thank you to my good lady wife who promoted me very nicely while hiding her peed-offedness at my impending hairiness 🙂

Indeed, the Movember event is to raise awareness of the importance for men to be checked regularly. The main focus is on Prostate Cancer awareness/prevention. Having lost a grandfather to this disease, it’s something close to my heart.

You can find more details at the following links:

* Remember, Remember, the Month of Movember

* My Movember donation page

Every little helps, and you can make donations in a variety of ways. Your name pops up as a donator and you receive a receipt so you know it’s all legit.

Anything you can donate will be gratefully accepted – it’s for a great cause and something all guys (and their partners) should take seriously throughout the whole year.

Cheers,

Danny Brown
