Today is 1 November which means that like thousands of other Men around the world I’m starting to participate in Movember (see my page on Movember here).
Movember is an event that originally started out of Australia and New Zealand (but which has gone international this year) where men (Mo Bros) grow Mustaches as a way of raising money for charities around Mens Health issues.
Here in Australia the charities are for Prostate Cancer and Male Depression – two causes that I’m very passionate about as they’ve touched the lives of numerous people that are close to me.
Please Sponsor Me
The reason I’m participating in Movember this year is to raise money (no, it’s not just for your amusement) and I’d like to invite you to sponsor me.
(or by clicking the button to the left).
All sized donations will be gratefully accepted but I’m going to add a little extra incentive for those who can sponsor more than $200. If you sponsor me $200 (AU$ – which is $185 USD as of today’s exchange rates) or more I’ll let you put a button with a link back to your blog on my special Movember page as well as in a thank you post at the end of the month on the main blog. The button can be any size under 125 x 125. You’ll need to supply me with the button, a link and proof that you’ve made a donation (a screen shot of your receipt would be fine). No offensive content or affiliate links please – if in doubt ask first.
Follow My Progress
As part of Movember I’m going to be documenting my journey of attempting to grow a Mo here at ProBlogger. Not on the main blog (although my weekly video posts will obviously feature any ‘Tash’ that emerges from my upper lip) but on a special Movember Page.
On that page I’ll post pictures of me every day or two, am running a Poll to see what sort of Mo I should Grow and it’s where I’ll feature buttons and links to those who’ve donated more than $200 towards sponsoring me.
