Grow One for Movember! Sponsor?

Here in Australia (and hopefully throughout the world) men's health issues are becoming as well known and profiled as women's health. Movember is a simple and fun way to raise funds for Prostrate Cancer Research and to support beyondblue and issues of male depression.
Depression is a highly problematic societal health issue and suicide rates in the male population are so terribly high.
My son is participating in Movember and would welcome sponsorship. He is in a workplace team and their employer will match dollar for dollar to $2K:®o=86628&country=

Great cause - I hope your son chose a suitable style!

All rather amusing in the sense he has to shave off all his face fur to do this :) He is always very dedicated to this and Shave for a Cure and does the bald eagle look every year. Last year he raised quite a bit for cancer research along with thousands of others here. Shave for a Cure is a great comp and very embraced here nationally. I knew the family who commenced the program - I used to rent a property from them actually and they couldn't be more genuine about the cause. Cheers Tony!

"Had" to shave past tense. He shaved well before Movember started.
