It is not often that you are asked to help out your fellow man, and a true gent would never have to be asked.
However the month of Movember (November) is quite different each year gentleman from around the globe band together in union to help support Movember and your support for this is required and we dare say expected.
Movember is a splendid movement and charity that is responsible for all the spiffing new moustaches that you can see the early stages of as they begin to sprout on mens upper lips throughout the land.
The aim of this fine activity is to raise awareness and cold hard cash for men’s health specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
The rules of engagement are quite simple.
First you must register on movember.com
Each ‘Mo Bro’ Must start the month off with a clean shaven face
For the remainder of the month each ‘Mo Bro’ will have to groom and grow a splendid moustache.
You are not allowed to join your mustache to your side burns as this would constitute a beard.
You are not allowed to allow your handlebars to join under the chin as this would constitute a goatee.
You must conduct oneself in the manner of a true gentleman throughout this process (and at all other times).
By taking part you will help out your fellow man and raise awareness and funds by becoming a walking and talking human billboard, and prompt private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
Gentleman your words and actions are critical to success, for more information on Movember and to donate please visit http://uk.movember.com/donate/ The funds raised in the UK are directed to programmes run directly by Movember and their men’s health partners, Prostate Cancer UK and the Institute of Cancer Research.
