Movember has evolved into a global fundraising phenomenon.
United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 20 November 2013
Movember is a rapidly expanding annual charity event held during the month of November where men all over the world sprout moustaches to raise funds and awareness. Movember aims to provide support to victims of mental illness and tackle men’s health issues such as testicular and prostate cancer. Beginning as a small Australian charity in 2003, Movember has evolved into a global fundraising phenomenon raising millions of pounds every year.
The Buy Direct Group, through its two most popular websites Buy Sheds Direct and Buy Fencing Direct are donating £2.50 to the Movember campaign for every order they receive over £250. Through this initiative, the Buy Direct Group expect to raise a significant total and are confident that their fundraising activities will go a long way to support those battling the aforementioned illnesses.
Buy Sheds Direct sales manager Tracey Hartwell said that, “combined efforts which capture people’s imagination such as the Movember campaign make a real difference and have a positive impact on millions of people all over the world.” Speaking of the Buy Direct Group’s efforts she added, “We are proud to be contributing to such a good cause and hope that the money we raise will help those suffering these terrible illnesses and those who are working towards finding a cure.”
Regular updates are being posted on the above websites throughout November. Pages have also been set up to acknowledge the people whose orders have contributed and can be viewed here:
