Growing Mo’s and Talking About Real Issues: Why Philanthropy Is Important to the Denovo Family.
We are incredibly proud of the Denovo Mo Bro’s and Mo Sistas. Some of the moustaches are questionable, but it is the support that counts!
Movember is a global success, inspiring support from over 5 million people. Quite an impressive achievement from what started over a few beers in a Melbourne pub.
It aims to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues, focusing primarily on testicular and prostate cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
The statistics are startling. Men make up an average of 6 out of every 8 suicides a day. Only 1 in 4 men living with depression will seek help. Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed illness and it is estimated that up to 16,665 men in Australia will be diagnosed by the end of 2017.
Denovo is a family, and ensuring that our family is healthy is a top priority. We support and care for our employees, especially through hardship, and it is great to see our diverse family galvanise in support of men’s health.
Thank you to all who donated and thank you to our Group Managing Director, Andrew Mckenna for your generous donation and encouraging us along the way!
