The Many Faces of MOVEMBER

November 4th, 2010

As some of you may be aware, the month of November hosts a fund-raising event which raises awareness and helps fight men's prostate cancer. The event is called "Movember" (Mustache + November) and last year alone, Canadian participants and donors raised over 7.8 million (Australia was the only country to raise more).

Taken from

The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia. The plan was simple – to bring the moustache back as a bit of a joke and do something for men’s health. No money was raised in 2003, but the guys behind the Mo realized the potential a moustache had in generating conversations about men’s health. Inspired by the women around them and all they had done for breast cancer, the Mo Bros set themselves on a course to create a global men’s health movement.

A few of us OKDG'rs have donated our face to the event and would be honoured if you'd donate. OKDG has always been free with a lot of our members putting a lot of their personal time into presenting, helping out and organizing. You're welcome to show your support with a donation to this great cause. Even a donation of what you'd normally spend on a coffee would make a difference.

Darren Hull is willing to donate up to $1000 from business head shots to the OKDG team. What an excellent opportunity to get professional head shots while supporting a great cause. Read more about it, and get in touch with Darren here.

Looking forward to seeing a lot of stash at the next meetup.
