This year Scrap Girls is joining a world-wide fund raiser known as Movember. At the beginning of November, men around the globe start growing moustaches to bring awareness to men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. I know very few of us will ever develop these diseases, but we all have fathers, brothers, husbands, or friends who might. This is a great opportunity to show our support of them and have a little fun at the same time.
From November 8-26, we are asking you to sport your best ’stache. Grab your favorite photo, add a little bit of Photoshop magic, and you’re ready to go. Here is how to turn your moustache picture into dollars for the cause:
- For every Forum Avatar picture that is changed to a moustache picture, Scrap Girls will donate $1.00 to Movember.
- For every moustache picture posted on our Facebook page, we will donate $1.00.
- For every “Like” the moustache pictures get on Facebook, we will donate $0.10
On November 28, we will award prizes for:
The funniest moustache
The most authentic-looking moustache
The best scrapped moustache
And a special prize will go to the photo that gets the most “likes” on our Facebook page.
A little history on Movember from their website:
“Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the U.S., Canada, the U.K., South Africa, Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, and the Czech Republic. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.” (us.movember.com)
