More on the Mo'

I got this idea from my friend "Chopper"
The gents at VetShop are enjoying participating in the Movember challenge to raise funds for mens' health issues including depression and prostate cancer.

Fund raising has started slowly, but we now have some runs on the board (and  a lot more hair on our faces)!

"Call Me Tom Seleck"
Each year Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the world, with the sole aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.
Men sporting Movember moustaches, known as Mo Bros, become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts. The rules are simple; register online at and start the month of Movember clean shaven, before growing a Mo.  
More Mo' is More Mo'

Funds raised are committed to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia,  Beyondblue: the national depression initiative and the Movember Foundation.

Together, the three channels work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world class programs in the fields of research, education, support, and awareness.

Of course there is always more that can be done, so if you would like to make a donation:
