Movember

Before today I thought Movember was a fundraiser just for cancer in men. I thought it was a nice idea for men to raise money for men, and then I would move on to focus my volunteerism and fundraising efforts elsewhere. Before today I didn’t realize how much the Movember foundation was doing for men. Newsflash – it’s not just for cancer in men. Upon more research I realized this is a global effort where each country devotes their funds raised towards prostate cancer and testicular cancer as well as mental health and suicide prevention. Now, I like to donate money towards issues that effect my family and my community, as I’m sure that’s how a lot of people focus their time and donations, but I am sure we all know someone who is dealing with mental health or depression, if not cancer. Even though I physically can’t grow a mustache to show my support and raise money, I’ll find someone who is. Who is with me?
