Now on to the Mo Important Stuff

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'll be growin a moustache. That's right, I'm one of a multitude bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about changing the state of men's health.

And I think a mo - along with a pair of dodgy old sunglasses - will go well as part of the bad highway patrol cop image I'm going to cultivate this month.

Male health is a major issue. Did you know:

  1. Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 6 years less than females.
  2. Every year in Australia 2,700 men die of prostate cancer – more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.
  3. Depression affects 1 in 6 men…Most don't seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide. Rates of suicide are more than double the national road toll.
Help me change the face of men's health by sponsoring my mo. We need to help researchers (real ones, with lab coats and clipboards!) dedicated to finding more comfortable tests and treatments.

Please go to, enter my Rego number which is 21953 and your credit card details. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible (so don't give it to the man, help the men).

The money raised by Movember will be used to change the face of men's health by creating awareness and funding research into prostate cancer and male depression.

Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partè where I'll be parading my Mo on the cat walk for a chance to be crowned the Man of Movember. If you want to be part of this great night you'll have to purchase a Gala Parte ticket for $33.00 (inc GST).

Movember is proudly grown by Motorola, Polaroid, Remington and VB.

Movember is proud partners with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative.

I'm not paying until you tell us what kind of mo you'll be growing...

a slimline pencil version?
big bushy cricketing special?
Hitler mo?

I'd pay bigtime to see you live with a Hitler mo for a month.

Surely this calls for some kind of 30-posts-in-30-days-trackin-mo'-progress type dealio?

I was thinking once a week would be enough. Don't want to moverload.

I should also add that for those of you I see in the real world, I'm also accepting cash sponsorship.
