Did you know….
– that men are dying on average 6 months earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons?
– that globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men aged 15-39 years of age? And;
– across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 75% of all suicides
Movember aims to address this crisis and funds ground breaking projects all over the world.
From humble beginnings, the Movember movement has grown from two mates in a Melbourne pub challenging 30 of their friends to bring back the fashion trend that hadn’t been seen since past decades to a global one, inspiring support from over 6 million Mo Bros and Mo sisters around the world.
Safetyline Jalousie recruited their own mo bros this month to help raise funds and support the community that is changing the face of mens health. For the team, the involvement in Movember has been more than a fundraising effort. It has been an experience that has created a sense of comradery amongst the group as they share a laugh over their facial growth as well as share stories around these serious issues that are affecting our fathers, partners, brothers, sons and friends. Its these conversations that can make all the difference.
If you haven’t already, we urge you to learn more about Movember and the truly incredible work that they are doing. There are various opportunities all year round for you and your business to get involved to help save and improve the lives of men.
