This month you may notice something a bit different about me. No its not my comb over nor a new pair of spec's, it's the dodgy 'Tom Selleck' look I am trying to achieve. But my efforts are for a fantastic cause, for the second time now I've made the decision to donate my upper lip to the Movember movement. Over the 30 days of November, I'm growing a moustache (Tom Selleck Style!) while raising funds and awareness for men's health.
Movember is an excellent foundation and cause. As a foundation they are raising awareness of men's health issues and they are actively encouraging all men to look after their own health and wellbeing. Movember work 'tirelessly every day, connecting and funding the best scientific and clinical minds in the world, working towards two urgent goals: fast tracking a time when no man will die from prostate or testicular cancer, and to rid the world of discrimination against men and boys with mental health problems' (Movember Foundation, 2014).
Why not support me in my effort to raise funds this Movember, all monies raised go to the Irish Cancer Society. You can donate online at http://mobro.co/claydarcy
Writing a cheque to 'The Irish Cancer Society (Movember)', referencing my registration ID: 7834 and mailing it to: Movember c/o - The Irish Cancer Society, 43/45 Northumberland Rd, Dublin 4, Ireland

There's a lot riding on my moustache, so thank you and I appreciate your support.
