We're Celebrating Movember
Movember (a portmanteau word from moustache and "November") is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities. By encouraging men (which the Movember foundation refers to as "Mo Bros") to get involved, the charity aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Show off your real or embellished mustache inside the Bookstore and receive a 25% discount on any one regular priced item in the Gift Department (2nd floor), or on one of the three cancer GiantMicrobes pictured below.
