While I am unsure whether many of you know that each year 35,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK alone, I am sure you are familiar with mustaches. Movember is an annual charity which combines these two - participants grow a mustache during the month of November to increase awareness around men's health issues, and raise funds for prostate cancer research.

After three years of wanting to find out if anything would form on my upper lip, as I am now a student I am planning on finally growing a Mo. I am leading the London Business School Movember team, consisting of roughly 60 other students who have all committed to joining me, and looking slightly funny by the end of next month. Together, we aim to increase awareness of men's health issues, raise funds for critical research, and have some fun along the way.

I would greatly appreciate your support in this effort, and offer you three levels of incentives for donating towards this cause:

- GBP 10; picture of my end of the month Mo
- GBP 20; daily update picture via email so you can track the growth
- GBP 30; voting on how I style my Mo (assuming one grows in)

You can donate here.

Thank you in advance, together we will be able to change the face of men's health around the world!
