Most of you know by now that this month is movember. Awareness for men’s health. It is difficult to know what to do to support movember. For women’s health there are walks, parades, and athletes wearing neon pink. In fact, I often feel that year round it is women’s health awareness month. But, men’s health? Where are the sporting events to raise money for that? Where are the walks? Maybe I am confused and men really live forever and they just step into another dimension and laugh at our silliness they left behind. I guess I will never know. Until then, I am going to do something for movember.
Should I buy a pair of movember toms?
Should I write an inspirational poem?
I hate the Doctor
But, we should all go see them
Your life is worth it
Should I try to speak to the men in my life about there health?
Ok, I have one man in my life that’s my dad. Truly that’s it. I have tried repeatedly to talk to him about his health. The response I get is that it is none of my business and he is handling it. From time to time he slips and and puts on his calender that he is going to the dr, but won’t talk about it. I am not sure if this is because he is my dad, or this is how men approach health. I obviously have little experience with men, so maybe I should have gone with sending him a poem about his prostrate health.
I could pass out mustaches to everyone to raise awareness-
This would be fun and informative, but I would have to make sure that is was obvious that it was for movember and not just mustaches for the fun of it. Maybe I could just put a link to Le Clown’s website on the back. But, is a bunch of people sitting around wearing fake mustaches while reading Le Clown’s blog really what America needs? Obviously it is, why are you even asking me that.
There are so many things that can be done to raise awareness for all of the amazing men in your life. So get up off you ass and do something. Time is a wasting.
You can start by liking bloggers for movember on facebook, donating money here, and of course visit Le Clown without whom I would have never heard of movember.
