As many people are probably aware, November is a month that many people decide to take on the challenge of not shaving and growing a moustache (hence, Movember). This is done in order to raise awareness and funds for prostate and testicular cancer charities.
Movember has become more and more popular over the last few years thanks to news stories, retailer promotion and of course the fantastic moustaches that men sport through the entire month. What better way to promote a cause than with some ridiculously awesome facial hair?
Plumbworld the online retailer of bathrooms and plumbing equipment has decided to take up the Movember challenge just as they did the previous year. Steve Broadbent and Lee Taylor were the two people responsible for bringing up the topic of Movember 2012 and this is what they had to say:
Last year was quite successful and although with struggled with online donations we certainly raised awareness to the cause through the business and as individuals. We also were lucky enough to collect some small donations from friends and family who spent countless hours laughing at our out of control mos.
Everyone involved in the Movember awareness is technically coined as a mo bro or mo sister. Thats right, females can participate to, but not by growing a moustache as that would be… odd. Instead a mo sister acts as support for the mo bro whos trying to change the face of mens health for the better.
Lee Taylor added: Hopefully well be able to get some before and after pictures with our man tashes and see if we can win some of the Movember events for bigger recognition for the cause and the company! But we will really have to pull something magical off as last years winners were truly amazing!
