You may have heard that Movember is the new November and is the month dedicated to raising money and awareness for cancers that affect men.
Basically Men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.
Last year saw one million donors raise £26 million and the funds raised through the UK Movember campaign, raises money for The Prostate Cancer Charity (TPCC) – the UK’s leading Prostate Cancer charity. It is becoming more popular each year around the world and it seems crafty people are also getting involved.
I want to share with you my favourite Movember finds:
Mia Webb Photography –
Mia is a female photographer who is going to the extremes of creating a new moustache image of herself everyday. Mia Webb has already posed as Charlie Chaplin and Super Mario and her MoSpace page is definitely worth regularly checking out throughout the month – Mia Webb Mo Space
Stars & Scars – Moustache Necklace
This jewellery designer has made a fab selection of Moustache Necklaces in different styles of Tash. £1 from the sale of each moustache goes to the Movember Foundation in aid of Prostate Cancer too. The men can grow them but with this design, the women can wear them in support.
Wife of Brian – Crochet Moustache iPhone Holder
Wife of Brian creates designs for all your knitted facial hair needs. For the month of Movember, this designer will be donating 2% of her sales to The Prostate Cancer Charity. These are great unisex presents that whilst raising money are protection for your iPhone too.
Rescued Rags – Moustache Pin Badge
Want to support the Movember cause but lack the necessary Y chromosome to grow your own mo? Need a handy disguise?
Then you need a moustache badge that Dali himself would be proud to wear! Each moustache is hand stitched from felt with a securely attached badge fastening. £1 from each sale will go to the Movember prostate cancer charity appeal.
For those of you new to Movember, I hope I have Motivated you to support this worthy cause and changing the face of men’s health.
If you would like to donate to this charity and would like to support someone who is growing a tache for Movember you can always sponsor my husband who is taking part for his second year (a cheeky little plug). He finds growing one hard but it is definitely coming on nicely. – Rick Bromley Mo Space
Thanks and happy Movember
