PHD Gets Onboard The Movember Train

PHD Gets Onboard The Movember Train

B&T recently caught up with PHD’s new business and marketing manager Chloe Hooper and discovered that the media agency are getting behind a most noble cause this month.

Yes, November is a time when men across the globe selflessly put their dignity aside and adorn their faces with one of the most iconic, timeless, and extremely unfashionable facial accessories ever – the moustache. Why?

The state of men’s health is in crisis. Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute.

So this year, PHDers are taking action by raising funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention through participating in Movember.

Last year The Fan-Tache-Stic Five – made up five of young gun PHD staff – gained a large following and managed to raise $8000 for the charity.

In 2017 the team has grown to a whopping 38 members, including every male member of PHDs executive team.

There is one golden rule for Movember, which is that all participants must start the month completely clean shaven, which has meant we have a lot of baby faces walking around the office. But by the end of the month we will have 38 mos on show in aid of the cause. And each mo is a conversation starter for men’s health.
