Movember 2008

Hi All,

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Mo. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against men's depression and prostate cancer.

To donate to my Mo you can either:

  • Click this link and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account
  • Write a cheque payable to 'Movember Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1608361 and mailing it to:
Movember Foundation
PO Box 292
Prahran VIC 3181

Remember, all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men's health issues and donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative. The PCFA and beyondblue will use the funds to fund research and increase support networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer and depression.

Did you know:
  • Depression affects 1 in 6 men....most don't seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide.
  • Last year in Australia 18,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 2,900 died of prostate cancer - equivalent to the number of women who will die from breast cancer annually.
Imagine if one of these men could be your father, your brother or your son.

For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at Fund Raising Outcomes.

Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Part├ęs. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a ticket. The ticket can be purchased at Gala Tickets.

Thanks for your support.

More information is available at http://www.movember.com/.

Movember is proud partners with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative.
