During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.
The men of PACT were all keen to get behind this great cause, and not only did they donate and help towards raising money but they kept the female staff members entertained around the office with their rapidly (and not so rapid for others) moustaches throughout November.
Each week, photos were taken of each participating ‘moustache grower’ and uploaded onto the Movember Mospace website where friends, family and the public could also have a laugh and dig deep and donate to this worthy cause.
On Wednesday the 30th November (aka the day of freedom), PACT held a morning tea to congratulate all the PACT men who participated and put up with the itching, comments (and sometimes snickering) during the transformation of their appearances. Altogether we managed to raise a whopping $10,409.00 during this month.
We awarded 5 staff members with prizes that were categorized under; The Best Moustache, The Seediest Moustache, The Most Gentlemanly, The Quickest to Grow and The Worst Moustache, all voted by the female staff of PACT.
