Franklin, Ohio (PRWEB) November 07, 2011
November has been renamed ‘Movember’ to support the non-profit organization raising awareness and education, survivorship and research for prostate cancer and other cancers that specifically affect men. Helping the cause, the selfless, generous gentlemen at Factory Direct Craft Supply are growing their mustaches out for 30 days to receive sponsored donations the company plans to match and donate.
“There are so many programs for women’s health, but not enough for men’s,” said mustache participant, Larry Fleck. “It’s great to be able to participate in raising awareness for such an important cause.”
Eight clean shaven men of Factory Direct Craft Supply have committed themselves to change the face of men’s health by grooming, trimming and waxing their mustaches to seek out sponsorship and raise funds for their mustache growing efforts. Through these efforts, the men become walking, talking advertisements prompting men to acknowledge issues concerning their health.
“Talking about personal issues is sort of taboo for men. So this is a fun, positive way of bringing attention to them,” said Paul Doggett, another mustache participant at Factory Direct Craft Supply.
The funds raised by Factory Direct Craft Supply and other US participants go to Movember, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LiveSTRONG to support research and programs in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
