In one week Movember will be all over. Thanks to Aaron Gilmore, Dpf and Busted Blonde for their donations and Barnsley Bill for his token support. The rest of the blogosphere appear to be a bunch of tight fisted homo’s, which if you get Prostate Cancer you will find out all about “fisting”, so to speak.
If you get a change of heart then head over to the site and donate.
Of course it isn’t too late if you have a ‘stache to join my team.
In case you have forgotten;
The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men’s health issues and donated to the Cancer Society of New Zealand and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand. These two charities will use the money raised to fund research and increase support networks for those affected with prostate cancer and experiencing depression.
Did you know:
- Depression affects 1 in 10 men….Most people who experience depression make a full recovery. The first step is seeking help.
- Last year in New Zealand 2,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 600 died of prostate cancer – (that’s nearly two each day).
Now, I know personally that depression ain’t a barrel of laughs, I shudder to even contemplate what prostate cancer would be like, so how about it?, dip into your pocket and donate. It’s tax deductable don’t ya know.
UPDATE: Thanks to Cactus Kate and Gavin Knight for their donations
