movember: skullcandy team. donate, won’t you?

Hi I’m Katie and I’m here to ask you for some money.

It’s not for me!

But it will make me feel good and help those handsome men we all love and doesn’t it feel good to make people feel good? I think so.

First of all, if you don’t know what Movember is, check out their website where they can explain all the good things they are doing for men’s health – specifically men’s cancers and mental health.

I have joined the Movember movement this year as part of the Skullcandy Team to help the foundation raise money and awareness for mens’ mental health. Skullcandy is participating in the MOVE Challenge as part of the MOVE Network to change the face of men’s health and I think that’s a great idea. (Learn more here.)

Here’s why.

Earlier this year, a really terrific person and a really great friend to my husband and our circle lost his battle with depression and took his life. I never want to see that happen again. I don’t want to bog you down with statistics but in the minute since you have started reading this, another man has died from suicide.

So I am asking you to help me help the Movember Foundation lower the rate of suicide in men by 25% by 2030. You can help by donating to the Skullcandy Team, donating to my page directly, or by getting involved however works best for you. At the very least, please check out the website to learn more about men’s health, both physical and mental, and start a conversation.

We love men and we want to keep them around. Besides, who else is going to kill that spider you saw in the bathroom?
Cheers.
