If you haven’t already heard the seasons are changing. I’m not referring to the relentless onslaught of Autumn & Winter or even climate change but instead something far more exciting. Instead I’m talking about a seemingly innocent replacement of the first letter of November. Worldwide thousands of citizens are standing against the status quo and language itself in the naming of a new month called “Movember”.
With a movement that started in Melbourne, Australia thousands of men are uniting as one to grow out their moustache in a fight a global enemy most commonly known as cancer. Whilst I have been lucky enough to avoid it’s direct contact it has touched those I have known and most people including yourself will be, or likely have already been, affected either directly or indirectly at some point throughout your life. So men of the world I call upon you to unite for one month and shout those fateful worlds “OCCUPY MY FACE!”
Starting on the 1st of Movember I will be donating my face to an initial shaving and going on to begin a journey of facial hair growth and discovery all in an act of charity. To document the journey of my facial occupation throughout the month of Movember I will take a picture each and every day, leading to a final display that can only be imagined! All I ask in return is that you donate whatever you can afford to help a charity that that seeks to raise awareness of, and ultimately crush, prostate and testicular cancer (although luckily in most cases not directly… ouch!).
