Grow your mo bro

FINALLY men have a decent excuse not to shave from tomorrow.

The annual ‘Movember’ promotion kicks off aiming to raise awareness of men’s health.

Movember is a month-long celebration of the moustache, highlighting men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and depression.

The event is now in its sixth year and caters not only for Mo Bro’s but the woman who wants to support the ‘Mo Bro’ in her life.

Nearly 3000 men die of prostate cancer each year in Australia and one in eight experience depression.

Many males don’t seek help and Movember aims to raise awareness about these issues.

If you see a normally clean shaven man sporting a mo – whether it’s a handle bar or pencil – spare them some money to help in the fight for men’s health.
