Subject: Suggested Movember Donation Email Wording
To: "email@example.com" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Hey Mo Bro,
The easiest way to get people to donate to your moustache growing efforts is to send them an email or message directing them to the 'Donate' part of the Movember website where they just enter the donation amount and their credit card or PayPal details.
Below is some suggested wording you can copy and paste into an email or networking application message and send it off. Too easy!
During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'm growing a Mo. That's right I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about tackling men's health issues and being proactive in the fight against men's depression and prostate cancer.
To donate to my Mo you can either:
- Click this link https://www.movember.com/au/donate/donate-details.php?action=sponsorlink®o=1637201&country=au and donate online using your credit card or PayPal account, or
- Write a cheque payable to 'Movember Foundation', referencing my Registration Number 1637201 and mailing it to:
PO Box 292
Prahran VIC 3181
Remember, all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men's health issues and donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative. The PCFA and beyondblue will use the funds to fund research and increase support networks for those men who suffer from prostate cancer and depression.
Did you know:
- Depression affects 1 in 6 men....most don't seek help. Untreated depression is a leading risk factor for suicide.
- Last year in Australia 18,700 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 2,900 died of prostate cancer - equivalent to the number of women who will die from breast cancer annually.
For those that have supported Movember in previous years you can be very proud of the impact it has had and can check out the details at: [ Fundraising Outcomes ].
Movember culminates at the end of month Gala Partés. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a [ Gala Parté Ticket ].
Thanks for your support Simon.

Movember is proud partners with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue - the national depression initiative.

It's Wake Up, Arcade Fire's set opener at Enmore (only recorded properly by Triple J). It was to promote the fact that the whole show will be played on ABC2 tonight at 10pm. (Note well, music fans).
(I went to the bank and came back in time for...)
Midnight Madness. This song was blowing my mind, especially the buildup around 2:40, and filling me with unexpected joie de vivre/musique. I didn't know what it was and there was no back announce. I thought it was called Midnight Mass so after fruitless searching I found there is a playlist. Chemical Brothers. Of course.
Then there was news followed by this:
I was already pretty much in love with Soko after "I'll keel 'eur" but this ukelele song on the radio struck me as so beautiful my heart became dandelion fluff. (I guess I was feeling a raw emotionally. I said goodbye to two cats in two days. And I'm moving, but not to Brisbane). Here are the lyrics. She likes Daniel Johnston.
So now I'm parking the car and this comes on:
It's Wide Open Road, The Triffids
Sometimes I love Triple J.
