Fancy a bit of MOvembering to raise £1500 for Prostate Cancer

Published by Brett Alegre-Wood

Hey guys,

We're about to get very hairy for the 9th year running!

Yeah that's right, the girls and boys at YPC are rocking Movember again to help build awareness around prostate cancer and men's health.

It's going to be bigger, hairier and better than last year!

The girls will wear fake mos and the boys will grow ridiculous ones from Movember 1st to show their support.

This year we want to smash our £1500 target raising more than last year's £1085. But we can't do it without your help! That's for sure!

I've already got the YPC team up and running on and we now need YOU and YOUR FRIENDS to join us!

The details on how to get involved are underneath this team photo from 2010...

YPC Team Movember of 2010

Here's the drill to join:

1. Get hairy!
Mo bros you have to be clean-shaven on Movember 1st and then for the rest of the month, 'groom, trim and wax your way into the annals of fine moustachery' (the exact words of our big MoBro founder!)

Mo sistas you can buy a little fake moustash and wear it during the whole of Movember. (And I hear it's just as difficult for the girls to walk around with a tash stuck on their face as it is for the guys to grow theirs.)

2. Every penny helps
Once you've joined the YPC mo crew, why not make a donation - however big or small, it all counts. Or if you don't fancy growing an awkward tash and only want to sponsor the YPC mo crew, then simply click here to donate to The Prostate Cancer Charity and The Institute of Cancer Research.

3. Update us on your 'Mogress'
Email Fam on with a picture of your clean-shaven face on Movember 1st and every Tuesday till the end, and we'll enter you into 'YPC Best 'Mogress' Challenge. We'll feature your mogress in our weekly Movember blog and place you into our prize draw for the 'Mo of the Year 2011' award! So you've got to get people voting for you!

Spread the word, take part, grow your mo or buy one, and let us know all about it! I'll make sure your updates hit front page news on our Facebook page, and on our page.

Check out our mo's from last year, there's some hairy photos and a Mo'larious video of the YPC girls in their moustaches: click here to see it.

Make sure you join us on and keep up to date on our Facebook page.

Can't wait to see your Mo's!

Live with Passion

Chairman, YPC Group
