Hi guys,

Anyone here doing Movember? I've done it the last couple of years, even though mo-growing is hardly my forte.... NZ has very high rates of prostate cancer & depression/suicide so help raise funds and awareness by sponsoring my mo!

If you would like to donate to these worthy causes, click here to sponsor my mo:


https://www.movember.com/nz/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink®o=1643311&country=nz

You can also write a cheque payable to ‘Movember Donations Account', referencing my Registration Number 1643311 and mailing it to:

                                           Movember
                                           PO Box 12 708
                                           Wellington 6144



Receipts provided by email and donations are tax deductible Wink




ABOUT MOVEMBER:

Since its inception as a formal charity in 2004, Movember has raised over $30 million (AUD) globally and is continuously working to increase awareness of prostate cancer within the community and change the attitude men have about their health.

Movember has selected two new beneficiary partners for the next three years. These are the Cancer Society of New Zealand in support of prostate cancer and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand in support of men's depression through their "Out of the Blue" campaign.


The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand will use the funds raised by Movember for their "Out of the Blue" campaign to encourage men to take action, provide men with information to know what they can do for themselves and where they might go for help when experiencing depression.


The Cancer Society of New Zealand will use the funds raised by Movember to research into the causes, detection, diagnosis and improved treatment of prostate cancer. They will also raise community awareness of issues affecting men's health and provide support services for those affected with cancer.

Cheers,
Will
