Dec. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Tax Defense Network was filled with a number of impressive mustachioed employees for a worldwide event called Movember. In an effort to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other men’s health concerns, the men of Tax Defense Network started off the month of November clean shaven and purposefully grew mustaches that would make Tom Selleck proud. It started out just individual efforts. However, as more and more employees participated, this became a company cause. Tax Defense Network decided to contribute money to the Movember campaign for every employee who took part in the facial hair themed organization.

“This company supports a lot of causes.” said Michael Horton, manager of the I.T. and operations department, “I think that’s part of why so many of us have sought out organizations to sponsor in our personal lives. It’s great that our company is fostering that.”

While Movember is meant to raise awareness for all men’s health issues, prostate cancer is its main focus. Prostate cancer is an ever-growing problem faced by men. In fact, it is now the second most common cancer among men. Almost every 17 minutes a man dies from this disease that is easily treatable if detected early. The Prostate Cancer Awareness Project is pushing to make sure that every man has PSA blood tests done with their annual exams. Doing this would dramatically increase the prostate cancer survival rate. To find out more about this particular men’s health concern, visit the projects website at http://www.prostatecancerawarenessproject.org.

The Movember campaign started in Melbourne, Australia. Now, it is a worldwide movement with more than a million participants and it has raised $174 million so far. Men’s health issues affect everyone. No matter if you are a man or a woman, you can join this cause to raise awareness and funds. Every November, you can promote this cause by donning a mustache, supporting those who are growing one, ask for donations, or even host Movember events. To find out more about what Movember is and how you can help, visit http://us.movember.com. Though November has come and gone, it is never too early to get involved.

Tax Defense Network looks forward to another November of mustachioed charity in 2012. It is expected that there will be even more participants than before.

“Movember just proves that there are creative ways for anyone to help a cause.” said Michael Horton, “Don’t feel like you have to run a marathon. If you want to help the world, the sky is the limit.”
