Movember 2012 Hong Kong HK Joins Official Movember Network


Movember returns in... November, with Hong Kong included for the first time in the official charitable movement. Previously, the central Movember body didn't recognise our fair city as a member of their global strategy but not any more. There's a proper site,, so there's no excuses for wimping out - even if you grow a moustache like a toddler. Plus, it's the one month of the year you can grow a mousto and not look like a geography teacher.

At NecesCity we've teamed up with Thomas Pink, the British menswear specialist, to offer a HK$4,000 gift voucher for the 'Man of Movember'. Prizes will be handed out at the Official Rugby Gala Party on Dec 1, a free bash to raise awareness for men's health issues. In the meantime Pink is donating 20% of all boxer shorts sales to battle prostate cancer so if your underwear has more holes than one, it's an honourable piece of shopping. To become a Mo Bro simply register at the official Movember site, grow a moustache and get your pals to donate some money.

You don't need to raise a minimum but the Mandarin Oriental is offering performance-based perks, such as a 'Men Love to Spa' package and a Mandarin Shave for anyone who raises over HK$15,000. On top of that, we're raffling away five pairs of tickets to the invite-only Movember launch event at FLY on Thurs, Oct 25. There'll be mobile barbers' chairs, a photo booth, some free drinks - you get the drill - just send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to enter. Remember, the clit-tickler is off limits - we're talking classic moustos here.

On your marks.
