#TwitpicOTM: Movember

November is notorious for cooler weather, falling leaves, shorter days, giving thanks and of course, Movember: a worldwide moustache movement raising funds and awareness of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The prize winning shot comes from a group of gents who work together at Tyne & Wear Sport, based in the North East of England, UK.  “We decided to take part in the Movember challenge because we wanted to help raise money for a great cause by doing something that was fun and a bit different (and secretly because it was a lot easier than running a marathon or jumping out of a plane)”, explains Xerxes Setna, #TwitpicOTM winner. “We took photographs at regular intervals and when I heard about #TwitpicOTM, I thought it was the ideal opportunity to show off our Mo’s to the world…  It’s been great seeing people’s reactions when they’ve walked into the office for meetings and been confronted by six hairy-faced men.”  By the end of the month the guys managed to raise £1130 [roughly $1513.52] for Movember.  What a great effort for such a great cause! Special thanks to all our submissions- you guys rock!
