~ MOVEMBER ~

The Movember Foundation is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.


MY MOVEMBER

For my birthday in 2018 I participated in Movember, which I am sure those who know how ridiculous I look trying to grow facial hair will totally appreciate. I posted a picture daily from November 1st showing my progress (or lack of it!) in order to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer UK.  I’ve chosen this non-profit because their mission means a lot to me, prostate cancer has affected people very close to me over the past few years. In the process of doing this I managed to raise £450 for this wonderful cause.


WHY MOVEMBER?

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

THAT’S WHY WE’RE TAKING ACTION.

We’re the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We’re independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 15 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.

By 2030 we’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

OUR STRATEGY IS ALL ABOUT GOING WHERE MEN NEED US MOST.

We know what works for men. We’re transforming the way research into men’s health is done, and the way health services reach and support men.

We don’t take government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works.

WE REPORT ON EVERY INITIATIVE WE FUND SO YOU CAN SEE THE EFFECT YOUR DONATIONS ARE HAVING.

Thanks to the support of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas we’ve funded more than 1,200 projects saving and improving the lives of men all around the world. Since 2003, we’ve committed ourselves to helping men live happier, healthier, longer lives. Millions have joined us.
