Movember November Moustache Facepaints

Nov 2012

A bunch of ‘local” painters and I share jobs and chats on Facebook, and decided we fancied doing a joint fundraiser in a quiet period of November. Why not paint on face fluff for people that can’t grow any, like kids and women, for the charity Movember? Their thing is getting men to grow sponsored beards and raise funds for Testicular Cancer etc.

We created the East Anglian Paint Posse, ordered t-shirts, sent out press releases, and all put together work in our own area.

Avril and I managed to get fab The Forum to allow us a stand there, and decorating it with the excellent Movember Fundraiser pack, painted passers-by for donations to the charity. Another Posse painter was invited into a school and painted 100’s of ‘taches in a short time.

We raised £60 just from the Forum booking so not too bad!

Excellent fun for a good cause!
