Movember – Will you go for the “Mo”?

November 1, 2013

We’re bristling with excitement as Movember kicks off.

Here at AttractionTix, we’re all about trying something new and living life to the full.

We’re also suckers for a good cause and relish any opportunity to fill a blog post with hair puns – so we were obviously thrilled to discover that Movember fits perfectly with everything we love the most!

A little background for anyone who’s been living under a rock/has had little-to-no-contact with men for the past few years:

Movember is a charity initiative that, every November, encourages men across the UK to furnish their faces with a “mo” (or moustache for those of us not down with the kids).

And this foray into the field of facial fuzz isn’t just for fun – the organisation raises awareness of Men’s Health issues, and has already raised millions to support cancer research.

Russell Movember

Rising to the challenge this year, we’re proud to introduce our very own “Mo Bro” – the usually immaculately-shaven Russell, pictured here on day 1 of his hair-raising adventure.

Right now his face is very much a fuzz-free zone – but who knows how long it’ll take for this smooth guy to blossom into a model of mustachioed magnificence? And the hurdles (aka embarrassing facial fluff) he may face along the way?

If, like us, you’re eager to follow Russell’s progress, follow us on Twitter where we’ll be sharing regular updates. If you’d like to support him with this amazing cause, see his fundraising page here.


Good luck Russell in your hirsute pursuit!
