Just as pink ribbons and women’s health are associated with October, November (Movember) is recognizing men’s unique health needs. Did you know that men die and average of 6 years younger than women? The Movember Foundation is one of the leading non-profit organizations for men’s health issues, which includes prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.
Each year, they ask men to grow moustaches (or mustaches) to spark conversations about men’s health. In addition, they sponsor walks such as 60 miles for every man who commits suicide each hour and other organizational events. Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men. For every man in your life, I encourage you to visit the Movember Foundations website (https://us.movember.com/about/foundation).
I am sure your favorite guy would like to show off their Mustache. So, I designed this Mustache Quilt to help raise awareness and funds for the Movember Foundation. For each quilt pattern purchased in my Etsy store, I will donate 25% of the proceeds to the Movember Foundation.
