To go into the running to win the original artwork ‘Movember Pug,’ simply donate to my Movember page:
No donation is too small or too big!
A charity I care about is Movember, which raises money for Men’s Health (for Prostate cancer, Testicular cancer, and Mental Health and Suicide Prevention in particular.)
Obviously as a chronically ill woman, I support Women’s Health charities. I also care about men. Suicide is now the leading cause of death for men in Australia between the ages of 15 and 44. Each day, on average 6 men in Australia take their lives. This is alarming. A common attitude for men is to ‘suck it up’ and ‘be a man.’ This charity encourages men to care about their health and seek help if needed.
For Movember, on the first of November men shave, and throughout the month they grow a moustache. Instead of growing a mo, I am going to donate the original artwork ‘Movember Pug,’ and send it to one lucky person who donates to my Movember page, selected randomly.’
‘Movember Pug,’ was drawn from a sticker by Typo (shown below made into a card). Then I added a mo! I chose a pug, as they have such sad eyes. I made this one smile a little but you can see his vulnerability in his eyes.
It takes strength to admit you’re not ok, and it takes courage to do something about it.
Please support men’s health, and why not go into the running to win this artwork as well?
If you need to talk to someone, you can call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
