    The meaning of Movember

    Movember (a portmanteau of the Australian-English diminutive word for moustache, "mo", and "November") is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.

    Honestly speaking I (Jelle the owner of Velv'Or) did not know that Movember is also here to raise awareness of men's suicide.

    Some of you might know that my son, Kenzo, committed suicide in August 2016 at the age of 25. The scar his death left behind is huge and will forever mark my life, that of his mother, his sister and all other family members and close friends.

    Not many people openly talk about suicide, which is a shame. The more it is thought a taboo subject the harder it is for people suffering with suicidal thoughts to talk about them and search for guidance in life.

    Even though Movember makes us share the awareness of men's health, it is also a time to celebrate the fact that many men are healthy and if not that they accept help and guidance. For this reason I offer you all a gift and hope you will share this message with friends and family.



    Wishing you all an amazing day and again thanks for sharing this newsletter with as many of friends and family as possible.
