Movember 2009

I am at it again, growing a moustache this year for Movember.  I have decided to put down my razor for one month (November) and help raise awareness and funds for men’s health – specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

What many people don’t appreciate is that close to 3,000 men die of prostate cancer each year in Australia and one in eight men will experience depression in their lifetimemany of whom don’t seek help.  Facts like these convince me every year to get involved and I am hoping that you will support me.

To sponsor my Mo, you can either:

  • Click this link http://au.movember.com/mospace/109083/ and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account
  • Write a cheque payable to ‘Movember Foundation’, referencing my Registration Number 109083 and mailing it to: Movember Foundation, PO Box 292, Prahran, VIC, 3181
  • See me in person to check out my MO and pay cash (I have donation forms and receipts)

Remember, all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Movember is now in its sixth year and, to date, has achieved some pretty amazing results by working alongside The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCFA) and beyondblue: the national depression initiative. Check out further details at: http://au.movemberfoundation.com/research-and-programs.

If you are interested in following the progress of my Mo, click here http://au.movember.com/mospace/109083/. Also, http://au.movember.com has heaps of useful information.

So on the second morning of the Laser Skirmish Battle Weekend I will be clean shaving before we get underway.  I will update this blog as often as possible with pictures and I encourage you to get involved and either sponsor me or join up yourself as either a Mo Bro or Mo Sista.

Then on to growing the MO, now just to choose a style.  Take a look at this style guide and let me know which one I should go for.  Lachlan and I have already had a think and I am leaning towards the Wispy or Abrakadabra.  Let me know your thoughts.

Thank you,

Matt Struthers
