It's Movember and time to focus on men's health.

To show his commitment, Milo Gajin, Manager of Spitwater, a leading manufacturer and supplier of high-pressure water cleaners, is donating his face to the cause.

Milo is growing a moustache during the month – and he needs your support.

The affable company boss is well known for his imposing moustache – a distinctive facial feature for some 36 years.

He plucked up the courage to shave it off earlier this month and will now grow it again to raise funds for his favourite charities – prostate cancer research and male depression.

“My Mo will undoubtedly spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs, says Milo. “It’s all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male depression.”

So why is Milo so passionate about men's health?

The statistics speak for themselves:

  • 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • This year 20,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
  • Two of his friends and two of family members are living with the illness
  • 1 in 8 men will experience depression in their lifetime

You can support Milo’s Movember campaign by either:

Donating online at: http://www.movember.com/m/1729950 or writing a cheque payable to “Movember,” referencing the Registration ID: 1729950 and mailing it to:

Movember, PO Box 60, East Melbourne, VIC 8002
