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.
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!
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.
We're in the final stretch of Movember, and things are certainly getting hairy! If you'd like to pledge money to help fight prostate cancer, feel free to post in the comments or contact us directly. It's for a great cause, and every little bit helps!
The ReignDesign team is proudly participating in Movember this year. In case you've never heard of it:
The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia. The guys behind it joked about 80's fashion and decided it was time to bring the moustache back. In order to justify their Mos (Australian slang for moustache), they used their new looks to raise money for prostate cancer research… never dreaming that facial hair would ultimately lead to a global movement that would get men talking about a taboo subject – their health.
There is no official campaign in China as of yet, but that's not stopping us from growing moustaches and beards to help spread the word.
Fluxa even put together a MO iOS app that we're using to photo-chart our progress (interesting animated .GIFs surely to follow).
