The Movember foundation has been going for over a decade now but I’ve only heard about it in the last few years. I always thought it was just a laugh. No one really needs to worry about men’s issues. Men are tough enough to look after themselves. Turns out, I was wrong.
So this year, I am going to grow a moustache and attempt a beard for the cause. What makes it more interesting for me, is that I am of Chinese/Vietnamese origin, its quite hard to grow facial hair. Letting it grow for a full month will be an interesting experiment. If I end up looking like a hobo I can say I am doing it for charity.
If you have some spare money and care about men’s issues, please donate here.
I would have written more about the cause but there is already a lot out there already. The Movemeber site has a lot of information as well as CALM, Campaign Against Living Miserably. Men’s issues are serious but for several reasons society doesn’t really want to address them. See this shocking video of Jess Phillips MP laughing at someone suggesting that MPs should debate men’s issues in Parliament.
