Movember 2010

Written by Survivors Admin.

What is Movember?

Movember is a charity event in which men grow wild fur on their upper lips to raise money for charities. It is also an opportunity to raise money for a couple of community projects that are near and dear to our hearts. In Australia and NZ, Movember was started as a way to raise awareness of men’s health problems, specifically testicular cancer and depression. The Seoul Survivors, however, have decided to get behind the Seondeokwon (선덕원) Girls Orphanage and, with the logistical help of the Hanns Seidel Foundation, deliver school materials to an elementary school in Rason, North Korea early next year.

What are the 선덕원 Girls Orphanage and the Hanns Seidel Foundation?

The orphanage is the Seoul Survivors chosen community project. Founded in 1965, the orphanage provides a refuge for some of Korea’s most vulnerable citizens. The Survivors believe that the girls’ orphanage is as worthy a cause as any other out there and we’re willing to grow our moustaches to show it. The Hanns Seidel Foundation is a German think tank, with an office here in Seoul that will help us with access and delivery of the school materials to North Korea. We will purchase and deliver the school materials in person to an elementary school in the northern port city of Rason.

How can I help the cause?

You can help by parting with what you can to sponsor a Survivor’s hairy upper lip and show your support for our charities. All the money raised will be split evenly between the girls’ orphanage and the purchase of school materials for an elementary school in Rason. On the 28th of November, we’ll get together at Scrooge Pub to tally our funds and give out some prizes to those with the best lip growth.
