It’s the little touches that make the big difference


My husband, Graham, took part for the third year running in last year’s ‘Movember‘ – an ingenious and fun campaign to motivate men (and women) into helping raise money for men’s health.

Graham once again put great effort into growing a moustache for the month of November, gained sponsorship from his regular donators and went along to the Gala Part√© to celebrate the wonder of the ‘tache.

The whole campaign is fantastically organised and I am sure Graham will, as long as his moustache continues to play ball, be helping to raise money for the cause.  However, it is the little touches that make the big difference.

The other day, Graham received a card in the post from Movember thanking him for his effort. This really made us stop and look – the thank you card is a lovely idea in itself, but the card was a hand written, full on thank you.

This made the note so sincere and Graham felt really appreciated for the relatively small amount of effort that he put in to help the campaign. The note has also left a lasting impression that I think will give Graham even more impetus to join the Mocampaigners again this year.

Hats off to Movember.
