Not Your Usual Angel Investor: Supporting Prostate Cancer Research for Movember

The gents at ReignDesign have been doing their bit during the month formerly known as November, by growing moustaches and raising money for men's health charity as part of Movember!

Our chosen charity is Prostate Cancer UK, who support world-class research into prostate cancer, and also spread awareness of the disease and provide support for sufferers.

Here we are at the start of the month, clean-shaved in our group photo!

The other team members pledged money if Matt would come to work in an angel costume. So he did!

We also teamed up with our friends at Kakadu Shanghai! We organised two barbecues and a scavenger hunt around Shanghai, with the proceeds going to charity.

And here are the guys at the end of the month, sporting a dashing variety of moustaches.

While we had a lot of fun over the month, there's a serious message here. Men can often be too embarrassed to talk about their health problems or ignore symptoms. So it's important we get the message out that it's OK to discuss things like prostate cancer, and to see your doctor if you're worried about anything!

By the 30th Movember, we raised an amazing 1,267 USD for Prostate Cancer! If you'd like to donate, you can still donate via Matt's JustGiving page.
