Movember – Help Us Help Aussie Blokes

madeleine hicks real estate movemberThe idea for Movember was born in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia. In the first-ever Movember challenge, a group of 30 Aussie friends (self-proclaimed “Mo Bros”) challenged each other to grow out their moustaches for an entire month, simply to see if they could bring the style back to popularity. Surprised by their bold moustaches’ ability to spark conversation, the founders decided to attach the challenge to a worthy yet overlooked cause: men’s health and The Movember Foundation was born.

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.

That’s why we’re taking action.

The team at Madeleine Hicks Real Estate are joining in to raise money this year for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Donate today and we can be the difference. We can stop men dying too young.
