Marc is my Movember Hero! A few days ago, he announced that we should offer ‘Movember Breaks’ at Harvey’s Point. When I asked him how he came up with this idea, he just laughed and said he stumbled across the worldwide phenomenan ‘Movember’ when he did a typo with the word November while designing an advert! Brilliant!
So what is Movember?
Movember is an annual event during the month of November where men grow their moustaches with a goal of raising awareness and funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and other mental health problems. From humble beginnings in Australia in 2003, the Movember movement has grown to be a truly global one, inspiring support from over 5 million people around the world. The global community has embraced Movember with a clear message that there is strength in numbers, creating awareness for men’s health.
Why is Movember so important?
The Movember foundation creates a popular and obvious way to participate in an awareness movement, sparking important conversations that revolve around men’s physical and mental health issues. In the noisy world we live in, many men are quiet when it comes to discussing and dealing with these issues.
What does Movember mean to Harvey’s Point?
This is our opportunity to involve the entire team in a fun but worthwhile cause, united by a commitment to help change the face of men’s health. Together, we can make a difference. For every room sold for the month of November, Harvey’s Point will donate €2 to the Movember Foundation. Well over a thousand Euro has already been raised. Every ‘Mo Sista’ and ‘Mo Bro’ who joins Team Harvey’s, will receive a free pint of Guinness or a cappuccino, to be featured in our Mo photo gallery.
Team Captain, Marc will rally the troops to get the men of Harvey’s Point wrapped up in growing and grooming the perfect moustache. Rumour has it that the competition will be fierce to find out who will have the grandest or creepiest moustache!
The Harvey’s Point ‘Mo Sistas’ are keen to support the men in our lives by promoting the importance of men’s health. Our challenge is to get active and MOVE every day of November – 30 MOVEs in 30 days. No MOVE is too big or small.
We are looking forward to the magical month of moustaches and being part of something truly special.
Happy Movember J
