Not Your Usual Angel Investor: Supporting Prostate Cancer Research for Movember

The gents at ReignDesign have been doing their bit during the month formerly known as November, by growing moustaches and raising money for men's health charity as part of Movember!

Our chosen charity is Prostate Cancer UK, who support world-class research into prostate cancer, and also spread awareness of the disease and provide support for sufferers.

Here we are at the start of the month, clean-shaved in our group photo!

The other team members pledged money if Matt would come to work in an angel costume. So he did!

We also teamed up with our friends at Kakadu Shanghai! We organised two barbecues and a scavenger hunt around Shanghai, with the proceeds going to charity.

And here are the guys at the end of the month, sporting a dashing variety of moustaches.

While we had a lot of fun over the month, there's a serious message here. Men can often be too embarrassed to talk about their health problems or ignore symptoms. So it's important we get the message out that it's OK to discuss things like prostate cancer, and to see your doctor if you're worried about anything!

By the 30th Movember, we raised an amazing 1,267 USD for Prostate Cancer! If you'd like to donate, you can still donate via Matt's JustGiving page.

The eleventh month of the year, formerly known as November, is now Movember at ReignDesign! I've been growing out my facial hair to help raise awareness of men's health, particularly prostate and testicular cancers.

It's important to remember that 47% of testicular cancer cases occur in men under 35 years. Check out BUPA's Movember page for more facts and prevention tips.

The evidence, Day 1 and Day 30.

Movember: the final pictures!

As you may know, the merry men of ReignDesign took part in this year's Movember. Despite my best attempts to erase all of the pictures forever, the world demands to see our seven mos in their full handlebar glory!

From clean-shaven beginnings, here are our mo's after a full month. Click to enlarge. You know you want to.

There is, believe it or not, a serious side to all this. Gents don't spend enough time talking about their health, and Movember is a fun way to raise awareness and money for prostate cancer research. If you'd like to help the cause, you can send a donation via PayPal by clicking on the button below.
