The month of November means a lot to me and always holds bittersweet memories. It’s the month that I celebrate the birthdays of the men in my life, my sons and husband, but it’s also the month that my dad died. My dad died from prostrate cancer in November 2012 just 10 months after Madison was born. She wasn’t quite 10 months old yet but luckily he got to meet her when she was only 3 months of age. Like most men, he hated going to the doctor. Going to the doctor meant that he was sick and being sick was not something he ever wanted to be. During the month of November an annual event called Movember comes about. What is Movember you ask? Well it involves the growing of moustaches to brings awareness to men’s health issues. Issues such as prostate and other male cancers, depression in men and their associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.”
Lennox partners with Movember annually to spread the word and raise awareness about men’s health issues. Dave Lennox has actually been the face of the Movember social campaign for the past few years, sporting the great mustache that he has.
So how can you help?
For every content share/RT on the Lennox Facebook page and Twitter page during the month of November, Lennox will donate $2 to men’s health issues. On Instagram, for every like or comment, Lennox will donate $2 as well. So I encourage you to follow and like them to so that we can all show our support.
They will be posting content on all of their social channels throughout the month that provide information about men’s health issues. They also will be showcasing inspiring stories from men and women that have been affected by these issues, whether personally or by someone they know. The tagline, “Tell a guy you know” speaks to the Movember campaign and how its purpose is to educate others and create awareness around important issues.
So if you have a man in your life, be it a father, brother, cousin or just a friend, join the Movember movement and share away. Let’s help the men in our lives live longer and happier lives. Start growing and start sharing!
Let’s discuss: Will you be joining in the Movember Movement and help bring awareness to men’s health?
