Steve is growing...a Mo!

Moustache Season is only weeks away and to show his commitment to the Movember 2011 campaign, our Steve (bless him) is donating his face to the cause by growing a moustache for the entire month of November.

His Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male depression.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

You might recall the Pearcey NSW ICT and Digital Media Entrepreneur awards last year at NSW Parliament when we celebrated a host of talent, with the pinnacle award going to Lars and Jens Rasmussen.
