This November, I want to change the face of men’s health. I’m inviting you to join me and grow out your Mustache, Neck Beard or just straight donate to help raise awareness about Men’s Health Issues.
No one person can accomplish much on their own, so I’m working with my barber, Nic Alexander, of the Chop Shop to organize a fundraiser to build awareness about two important causes.
Nic and I are working with the Movember Foundation to help address “some of the biggest health issues faced by men: mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.”
Nic’s focus is to raise awareness of the Suicide rate around the world in men who are ‘toughing it out’ by keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. My focus is about Prostate Cancer which is the second most common cancer in men worldwide.
Together our team name is the Metro-West Mythical Mustaches, use the link to donate to either cause or both. Every little bit helps, and no donation is too small. Invite friends and family to support your efforts with a tax-deductible donation while you give your razor a rest.
This is only the beginning of the conversation, so keep talking; share, get more people involved, brag about your patchy facial hair and let’s work to raise awareness to these pressing issues.
Read more about the Movember Foundation and get started growing out your facial hair.
If you start to hate it, Nic can give you a trim at the Chop Shop, just off Route 495 in Milford, MA. If Nic is booked, other barbers are available to fix it up.
On top of that, my house is only ten minutes down the road, and as a special incentive, the top 3 donors will be invited to a traditional Italian meal, home-made by my beautiful mother.
Grow, Donate, Share, Talk, Donate some more, and keep men from dying too young. Together we can work to help some serious issues that men face.
