Movember

WHAT is Movember?

Movember is a movement committed to changing the face of men’s health by challenging men to grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

Donate Now

WHEN

Movember started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003. It is now seen around the globe every November 1st – 30th, with campaigns in 21 countries.

WHY

To create conversations about men’s health and to find breakthrough solutions that produce tangible improvements in the lives of those dealing with prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

HOW

Men (also known as Mo Bros) sign up online. Start clean-shaven on November 1st then donate their face for 30 days by growing and grooming the best moustache they can muster, raising funds and awareness along the way.

Women, (also known as Mo Sistas) play a key supporting role by signing up as team captains, recruiting Mo Bros, helping to raise funds, and also encouraging the men in their life to action when it comes to their health.

FUNDS

Funds raised are committed to combatting prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems and have supported over 800 men’s health programs to date.

Specifically:Prostate Cancer - Men living with and beyond prostate cancer have the treatment and care needed to be physically and mentally well.

Testicular Cancer - Men living with and beyond testicular cancer have the treatment and care needed to be physically and mentally well.

Mental Health – Men are mentally healthy and take action to remain so. Those who experience mental health problems take action early and live lives free of stigma and discrimination.

How you can give to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts

The scale of the devastation in the Philippines as a result of Typhoon Haiyan is immense.  The death toll is over 1,700 and rising.  Many predict it to reach over 10,000.Those who have survived have gone days without food or fresh water.  Doctors are desperate for medicine to treat the wounded.Air Force Capt. Antonio Tamayo told the Associated Press:  "It's overwhelming.  We need more medicine. We cannot give anti-tetanus vaccine shots because we have none."The longer survivors go without help, the greater chance of disease.According to the AP:  "a reporter drove through the town for around 7 kilometers (4 miles) on Wednesday, seeing more than 40 bodies. He saw no evidence of any organized delivery of food, water or medical supplies, though piles of aid have begun to arrive at the airport. Some people were lining up to get water from a hose, presumably from the city supply."How can you help?There are many organization which have set up websites for funds for disaster relief.   The American Red Cross will take your donations online.  The link for its website is here.  UNICEF reports an estimated 4 million children were affected by the storm.  You can also give via 'UNICEF Responds' by clicking this link.

The Undeserved Pain Christy Tucker Sims, beautiful, devoted and single mother of two children was disfigured by her former boyfriend (not the father of her children) in April 2013 with sulfuric acid. Christy suffered severe 3rd degree burns on her face including her eyes, neck, arms and shoulders.  Since then she has had numerous skin graft surgeries which kept her sedated and intubated for 6 weeks as she recovered.  Her life and the lives of her children and family have drastically changed to say the least. She did not deserve this.  At the time, Christy had just addressed her graduation announcements for receiving her Masters Degree in Counseling from Mercer University in Atlanta, GA.  Her graduation was 2 weeks away. She was unable to attend. Christy was employed at a non-profit organization where she counseled many people who are struggling with addiction and HIV. Her devotion to helping others is unwavering and steadfast. Current SituationChristy has a long journey ahead of her but she is a courageous soul. Through all of the emotional, physical anguish she is determined to get back to her life but mostly to raising her two children.  Christy is being cared for by her loving family but she is unable to work and will need support for the surgeries that she will undergo soon as well as for supporting her kids.

Love ProceedsThe road to recovery and wellness will be long and arduous but Christy's family and family of friends are dedicated to loving her back to life.  Please help support this woman of God that has been a rock for everyone she loves.  She did not deserve this type of pain. Even through her tears and hurt, she remains amazingly optimistic as she says, "I keep the other side to all of this in my mind and know I will make it so I can help prevent other women from going through this but mostly I want to get back to my children and our happy life together." Support for Christy Sims Please assist Christy and her family by donating what you can to help fund her medical expenses as well as support with daily living as she is unable to work through her healing process. Thank you in advance on behalf of Christy and her family as she braves this journey of rebuilding her life.

Drake House Fundraiser

KISS 104.1 FM Sasha the Diva Radio Personality to Emcee Annual Fundraiser for The Drake House

KIAA 104's Sasha the Diva will Emcee  the 8th Annual Miss Mary’s Ice Cream Crankin’. You can hear Sasha on The Tom Joyner Morning Show with her featured called I’mJust Sayin’ along with doing her show on KISS 104 Saturday afternoons. 

This community event brings together local civic, faith and business groups for an old fashioned ice cream social, offering over 140 flavors of home-made ice-cream and celebrity judges to rate the best flavors. The family event is being held in the Roswell Square on Sunday, August 26th from 2 to 4 PM. Each year, attendance and proceeds increase, with this year’s attendance expected to exceed 3,200 with a financial goal of $50,000. “We are very excited that Sasha has committed to act as our Mistress of Ceremonies this year”, states Executive Director, Kathy Swahn. “She will bring a real vitality to the event along with a passion for our organization and the work that we do to assist homeless mothers in the North Fulton region”.

The Drake House offers short-term crisis housing, support, education and empowerment programs to single mothers and their minor children. The non-profit was founded in 2004 to fill an unmet need in the area. Having opened their doors in June of 2006, The Drake House has served 233 families with over 400 children that have originated from Sandy Springs, Roswell, Johns Creek, Alpharetta and Milton. Despite the presumed affluence of the area, The Drake House stays close to or at capacity all year long in their 16-unit apartment complex.

“I had an immediate connection with this organization”, says Sasha. “I was part of a group home program as a teenager and can certainly appreciate the great work that is being done to keep families together. The Drake House works every day to empower these mothers, and build on skills so that they can regain their financial independence. I am thrilled to be a part of this event!”.  The organization depends on financial and volunteer support from the community to sustain their very successful program and the Ice Cream Crankin’ offers a much-needed revenue stream. For information on sponsorship, ticket sales or to be involved as a “Crankin’ Team”, please see their event website at www.missmarysicecream.org  or call 770.587.4712.
