Remember, Remember, the month of Movember!

You might remember that last year for Movember I snapped a photo every day on Instagram which featured a moustache of some kind or other. It was much fun and by the end of November I had a great collection of weird and wonderful mo'ments! 

The aim was to support and raise awareness of the fabulous cause that is Movember. For those of you who are not sure what this is about here's the down low...

"During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. With their “Mo’s” men raise vital funds and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health."

Seeing as I still can't grow my own moustache (probably more to be happy about that sad!) I am once again showing support in my own way and this year I have donated a bigger sum to the wonderful Gallery of Mo again! Gallery of Mo is a website created to help encourage donations to their Movember team. Every person who donates to the team gets a portrait of themselves (with the addition of a moustache) draw by your chosen artist from the many who sign up to support this project. 

Last year I had a wonderful portrait drawn by the lovely Becka Moor in return for my donation and support. This year when I was looking through the line up of talented beans on the Gallery of Mo site I fell in love with the style and work by Jo Whitby aka I Know Jojo and this is the amazing Mo'trait I

received after I sent through photos of Toby, Pegs and myself....

Isn't it just amazing!?!?!

Go on, what are you waiting for? Head over to the Gallery of Mo now to chose from the squillions of artists who are waiting for your donation in return for a Mo'trait of your very own!
