Grow­ing mo for char­ity

Manawatu Guardian - - BRIDGE OVER BEAUTY -

Grant Mar­shall says grow­ing his mous­tache for 30 days is not just a bold fash­ion state­ment.

“I’m do­ing it to raise funds for the Movem­ber Foun­da­tion,” — and he’s ask­ing for sup­port.

“I’m sup­port­ing the Movem­ber Foun­da­tion be­cause they’re tack­ling some of the most sig­nif­i­cant health is­sues faced by men.

“Your do­na­tions will help them stop men dy­ing too young.”

Grant says his mo­ti­va­tion is be­cause glob­ally, the rate of sui­cide is alarm­ingly high, par­tic­u­larly in men.

“Too many men are ‘tough­ing it out’, keep­ing their feel­ings to them­selves and strug­gling in si­lence.

“The Movem­ber Foun­da­tion is aim­ing to re­duce the rate of male sui­cide by 25 per cent by 2030, and I want to help them get there.

“Help me stop men dy­ing too young.”
