I’m not usual one for fundraising, or asking people to support charities or any such thing. I like to make donations that I can myself, and I don’t really like to harp on about causes but I am about to contradict that ethos by informing you I have signed up for Movember.
During November I will be cultivating the embarrassingly sparse patch of hair that assembles itself ludicrously slowly between the latitudes of my nostrils and my upper lip. Apparently by doing so I am encouraging people to thing about some very important men’s health and well-being issues, which is important. I can’t help but think of the last time I decided to shave my beard and leave a moustache, a period of time when women with children crossed the road and people made comments like “who is that barefoot hippy with a seedy seedy mo” so if you can donate that would make my appearance feel less anti-social.
Anyway I shall stop rambling at this point and say that there are a number of awesome cause out there to support. If you want to support my Movember campaign (entitled “Mos in Movember Only!”) click here.
Otherwise I would encourage you to consider these other worthy causes that unfortunately seem eminently relevant to friends and family at the moment.

I wasn’t the kind of person who felt comfortable with the whole fundraising thing either but for various reasons ended up taking the plunge on a cancer charity ride. I just published a post about my experience today actually! I did feel weird asking people for help but I was also surprised and overwhelmed by the support offered. I had no idea how many people had been touched by cancer until I did the ride. Our son’s experience also motivated me. Unfortunately a mining company is now a major sponsor of the ride so I am in two minds about promoting the event now… Anyway, good on you and happy mo growing! 🙂
