Hope all is well with all of you! I am keeping very busy here in Chicago and get preparing to head back to California for a week on Monday! This blog is a little different, as I want to take a minute to tell you all about Movember.
For those of you who are not familiar, Movember is the month on November. A month when Mo Bros join together to raise awareness for Men's Health by growing mustache and Mo Sistas join these men in support. We are raising awareness and funds for men's health but in particular prostate and testicular cancer.
A few facts:
-The average life expectancy for men is five years fewer than women (presently 77 years old compared to 82).
-24% of men are less likely to go to the doctor compared to women.
-1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime.
Red Frog Events has joined together this year and created a friendly office competition to raise both funds and awareness throughout Movember. I have pledged to be a Mo Sista, and I am cheering on the men as they try to keep their upper lip warm with a fuzzy little lip sweater. Although it would be rad to contribute in mustache growth- that is not possible. Instead I'm turning to you, friends. Please visit my MoSpace and donate to the cause. If you're not able to donate at this time, forward this along to your friends and spread the word about men's health.
Knowledge is Power and Mustache is King.
