Yes. Movember is here.
This year marks a decade of me upsetting all around with the curation of yet another absurd-looking lip slug. By November 30th 2013 I’ll have spent a total of 10 months putting dignity on the line in order to raise funds and awareness of mens’ health issues via the Movember charity: over the years variously depression, and testicular & prostate cancer care & research.
Blokes are rubbish at going to the doctor, and yet the annual crop of moustaches peeking out as winter draws in in the UK are now almost a subconscious cue to all of us to at least stop & think when the last time we had a checkup was.
Plus, it seems to irritate hipsters to ask them if they’re doing Movember – and anything that irritates hipsters is totally fine by me.
If you can spare £5 or so to help me in my fundraising effort this year, then I’d really appreciate it. It’s been a lot of fun doing this over the last decade.
