MR ELK x MOVEMBER: MEET THE BOYS
At ELK, family is at the heart of everything we do. Everyone has a father, partner, brother, son or friend who at some time in their life is affected by a men’s health issue.
At Mr ELK, we set out a mission in November 2017 to create some seriously impressive Mo's and help support Men's Health. Our Mr ELK Crew rose to the challenge to support the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round.
Meet our Mr ELK Men of Movember and their Mo Heros who helped us to support this important cause.
Eddie is the ringleader of Mr ELK’s Mo team and, fitting of a leader, his moustache goal is inspired by the one and only Australian Mo King, Merv Hughes. Eddie joined #Movember because he wanted to help raise funds and awareness for men's health. Eddie hopes that as this event becomes more popular and well known so that more men can become comfortable talking about their issues (mental and physical), rather than keeping them to themselves. Also, this was Eddie's first attempt at growing a moustache and he and his friends were looking forward to having a laugh at his progress.
Heroic Australian geologist, Antarctic explorer and academic, Sir Douglas Mawson, was the moustache hero of ELK Co-founder and Director, Adam. Already ahead of the game with his facial hair growth, Adam was on a mo-mission to achieve a refined yet bushy 'Chevron' style Mo by the end of #Movember. Adam joined our Mr ELK Mo Crew with the ambition to encourage his employees and fellow gents to talk more. Like many of us, Adam has experienced the challenge of expressing his thoughts and emotions from time and believes #Movember provides a great environment to talk about men's health issues with family and employees to raise awareness of common challenges.
Family man Linn from our warehouse team looked forward to growing his Johnny Depp inspired moustache – a neat and lean version of the Chevron style. Linn joined #Movember because he believes it is a great way to spread the word on the importance of having open conversations with friends and family and always listening and giving time to everyone.
We were excited to watch ELK old timer Jordan’s Mo progress as he endeavoured to grow an ambitious moustache, known as the "Walrus" style, just like his Mo Hero, Ned Flanders. Jordan supported #Movember because he believes it is important to make man time with his mates and to check in on a regular basis.
Hailing all the way from Canada, Owen from our warehouse team took on the mo-mentous challenge of growing a Mo just like his hero, Tom Selleck. We hoped when photographing his Mo achievement at the end of #Movember, he would style his Mo in homage to 80's retro fashion with a Canadian Suit, otherwise known as the top to toe denim look. Owen joined the Mr ELK Mo team to do his part in raising awareness of the importance of having honest conversations with friends and family on a regular basis.
