Grow a Mo, Bro. Get 15% off your next travel policy. And we'll add 10% for Movember.
You may think that perhaps the days of the moustache are over. Far from it! Thanks to a dedicated team of Australian 'mo growers' who decided to grow moustaches during November 2003, the moustache is making a welcome return to favour. It’s helping to raise millions to change the face of men’s health too. And you can help. When you do, we'll give you 15% off your next World First travel policy as our way of saying thanks. And we'll donate a further 10% of the cost of your policy to Movember.
How Movember makes a real difference
Travis Garone and Luke Slattery began their quest to help raise awareness of the biggest health issues facing men today. These are the threats of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. As it says on the Movember website “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.”
Since they first challenged 30 of their friends to grow moustaches in 2003 Traveis and Luke and their Movember Foundation have raised £443 million, have funded 1200 men’s health projects around the world and have encouraged over 5 million men to grow moustaches!
That is astounding.
The idea is so very simple. All you have to do is register on the Movember website then have a clean shave on the 1st of November and then let it grow for the whole month. You can ask any of your friends to then pledge money to encourage you as you go through the first few wispy days and your new look begins to take shape.
If you want to get more involved by hosting a party or ‘moving for Movember’ you can. Details are all on the Movember website.
How we’re helping at World First
Here at World First we’ve been big Movember supporters for a long time. As medical travel insurance specialists we cover all kinds of men’s health issues, including prostate and testicular cancer and depression. We may not be the best growers but we are fully behind the campaign and have begun our own fundraising page on the Movember website at The World First Tashtastical Dance Club. Between us we have dedicated our Movember to growing the most lavish array of facial fuzz since Magnum Pi last graced our televisions.
