An awesome alternative for facial hair for Movember! Pretty swag!
For those of you who don’t know what-what “The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs.
To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won’t stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.” This cause is a little close to home for me, and countless others who’s lives have been touched by the various aspects of men’s health being addressed – ranging from mental illness, to prostate and testicular cancer. Contemporary society, there seems to be a lingering stigma that entails men seeking support for a spectrum of health issues. Whether it’s due to the old-school “if it’s not broke” mentality, cannot find the time or compromising one’s masculinity.
I lost a friend to cancer a few months ago; who didn’t get a little niggling problem checked-out and then 4 months later I was looking up at the ceiling in a crematorium, because I couldn’t look at the daughter he’d left behind and trying my hardest to will away the tears.
For something as small as a twinge in the back it escalates quickly! And yes, I get that this is only a manicure; yes, I cannot grow a moustache (being female, unless enlisting the help of some serious hormone altering substances) but I’ll be damned if I’m not going to do my best to get people involved for Movember.
