October 23, 2012 (FPRC) -- During November each year, men around the world participate in "Movember": By growing moustaches, they raise awareness for men's health, specifically testicular cancer and prostate cancer.
One London based bureau de change now joins Movember with a remarkable campaign: People are urged to donate leftover travel money to Movember, and for every banknote with a moustache, double the exchange value is donated: "If your banknote has a moustache, we double your donation."
Mario Van Poppel is director of charity.html">Leftover Currency, the bureau de change that launched the "moustache banknote campaign" yesterday. Mario explains: "I took part in Movember last year and grew a Poirot style moustache. It was fun and everybody (except my wife) were very positive about my Mo. I decided to enroll myself this year again, and thought of doing something with moustaches at the bureau de change.
"You can find some very nice moustaches on banknotes from around the world," Mario says. "My favourite one is the 100 Canadian Dollar banknote with Sir Robert Borden. I think he's my example when it comes to facial hair. I hope my moustache will resemble his at the end of November."
Mario hopes that his campaign will raise some extra money for Movember. "I hope that this campaign catches people's attention, so that I can write out a nice cheque for Movember." Leftover Currency's moustache banknote campaign runs until the end of November.
