This week’s CowAWeek is in honor of the Movember Foundation.
While many have heard the word Movember, some may think it’s just a month where guys get furry or grow fancy mustaches. While it is that – the real story behind it is much more serious. The Foundation supports men’s health initiatives around the world, primarily focusing on mental health problems, and prostate and testicular cancers. Their goal is to reduce premature deaths in men by 25% by 2030. That’s only 14 more years!
Last month men showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness month by wearing pink ribbons, pink shirts, and in the case of MLB and the NFL all sorts of pink sporting equipment. I’d like to thank them and all the wonderful men in my life with this simple gesture. All proceeds from sales this month of the mug will go straight to the Movember Foundation. The mug is heavy duty ceramic, printed on both sides.
Looking for other ways to help?
You have options! You can donate directly to the Movember Foundation, participate in fund and awareness raising events near you, and also a friend of mine has her own Mo-sista page you can help support. Many companies also offer matching gift, so be sure to check with your employer to help double your generosity.
