Halloween screams have disappeared into the night and as well as All Saints Day, Day of the Dead and plenty of other celebrations, today is the dawn of MOVEMBER. As we mentioned in our Moustache Sticker post, Mr H (aka Earl) is growing a handlebar for the event. I have a penchant for furry faced design – and included a MOUSTACHE badge in my book Supersize Stitches.. and have a few crafty fund raisers up my sleeve. So what is it? In their own words:
“Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Once registered at movember.com each Mo Bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face. For the entire month each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache. There is to be no joining of the mo to the sideburns (that’s considered a beard), there’s to be no joining of the handlebars to the chin (that’s considered a goatee) and each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true gentleman.
A Mo Sista is essentially a woman who loves a Mo. An individual that is dedicated to supporting the Mo Bros in her life through their moustache growing journey; whether it be a friend, colleague, family member or partner. “
So Pearl and Earl are fully Mo’d up for November – for a charity we think is worthwhile – as we have lost too many friends to cancer this year.
Hope you fancy joining us…
