Movember

i took part in this last year and loved seeing the look on client faces when i'd rock up to meetings sporting my dirty tash...



from ad-roc:


During Movember (the month formerly known as November) men will be growing
moustaches to try to change the state of men’s health.

Male health is a major issue, did you know:

Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is
6 years less than females.

Every year in Australia 2,700 men die of prostate cancer – more than the
number of women who die from breast cancer.

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.

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.

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

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