Go the mo over a beard for a worthy cause
SHANE Sellars has not been clean shaven since 2015, but he was willing to shave off his renowned beard in the name of men’s mental health.
He is participating in Movember with the Food Truck Friday team, which has a fundraising goal of $500.
“We want to help raise money for initiatives to support men’s mental health which is really important as men won’t often seek help,” Shane said.
“The first rule was you have to have a clean shaven face to make room for the beard,’’ Shane said.
“I hadn’t been clean-shaven since 2015 so it was a shock.
“My daughter said I looked creepy and my threeyear-old told me to put it back on.”
The Roma resident said he hoped to see some of the funding going towards providing services in rural areas.
“I’ve got a little bit of a saying – we’re complex beings living in the chaos of a complex world,” he said.
“Everyone’s going through something, especially during these tough times of drought, so it’s important we get some more mental health support out here.”
Food Truck Friday will be holding a Movember Moustache Mo-ment at the Big Rig on November 15 from 5-8pm.
