Movember just around the corner

Movember is just around the corner. Right now I am pretty much exhausted with all the fights in my life and so for the month of Movember I am going to blog much, much less. I need to be selfish and look after myself. I have arranged for some guest posters but anyone wanting to write a post on Whaleoil can feel free to email it in. I want to concentrate on Movember and especially highlighting men’s depression, something I have never hidden and always talked about.

Once again I will growing a moustache for Movember and am looking for recruits to join my team. I think I’ll go for the big Chopper Read one again.

To sponsor my Mo, you can either:

???? Click this link and donate online using your credit card
???? Write a cheque payable to ?Movember?, referencing my Registration Number 17568 and mailing it to: Movember, PO Box 12 708, Wellington 6144

Remember, all donations over $5 are tax deductible.

Movember is about raising much needed funds and awareness for men?s health ? specifically prostate cancer and depression in men. Important when you learn that close to 600 men die of prostate cancer each year in New Zealand and one in ten men will experience depression in their lifetime – many of whom don?t seek help.

The more people I can get board, the more awareness and money will be raised and so I am asking you to join my team and either grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or sign on as a Mo Sista and help out with raising funds.

To join my Movember team go to and follow steps. Once registered you?ll be sent all the information you need to get donations and get growing as part of my Movember team.

2009 is Movember?s fourth consecutive year. If you are interested in learning more about the work that is being carried out as a result of Movember funds, check out the details at

Hope to welcome you to my Movember team shortly.
