Immortalise Your Mo This Movember
Movember is here and already we’re seeing some fuzzy fur and bumfluff on many a guy’s upper lip. It might be alarming at first, but it’s all for a good cause and we are in full support of it! Essentially Movember is all about raising awareness for illnesses that can cut short a man’s life. It’s also tied into raising funds for studies into these illnesses and how we can prevent them from affecting the men in our lives. They’re looking specifically at studies into:
- Prostate cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Mental health and suicide prevention
This quote from the Movember South Africa website perfectly sums it up:
“The state of men’s health is in crisis. Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute.
Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing this health crisis and it’s not being talked about. We can’t afford to stay silent.”
Get Involved With Movember And eimage
It’s a brilliant, thought provoking, but also fun initiative to get involved in and we’re behind it 100%. We thought it was also the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our graphic design skills, which is why we’ve launched our Immortalise Your Mo promotion. We want you… yes, you… to share the progress of your mo with us on social media, either via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Tag us in the pic of your mo or share directly to our Facebook page, use the hashtag #eimagesaMo and we will see if your magnificent mo is worthy of being immortalised forever!
We will share some of the best mos we come across in their complete, immortalised state for all the world to see. Share your mos with us today and show your support for Movember!
