TOMS for Movember

Want to support this year’s Movember fundraising campaign but not willing (or able) to grow some long, luxurious facial fuzz? The folk at TOMS shoes are supporting the Movember Foundation’s work raising awareness of men’s health issues including testicular cancer, prostate cancer and mental health with their special TOMS + Movember range of classic styles for guys and gals – all embossed with miniature moustaches. As always, for each pair of shoes sold they’ll give another pair to a child in need as part of their ‘one for one’ system – and additionally, a portion of funds from sales will be donated to the cause to assist with their important work in the area of men’s health (to date, the Movember campaign has raised over $550 million USD and funded more than 800 programs globally). Look out for the many Movember events happening around the country, and make sure you either grow your own mo or flaunt one on your feet!

Yearn to Learn

Feel inspired to learn something new? Yearn to Learn is Melbourne’s latest offering for quirky, hands-on workshops. Their pre-Christmas program includes classes on upcycled origami, print making and handmade clay jewellery that’ll give you the opportunity to stretch your brain, learn something different and get your hands dirty! Founder and Director Mandy Ross says, ‘I wanted to start something to support the local artisan community – giving creatives paid teaching work, while letting them share their passion with others. We want people to come and tinker, play, create, yap, indulge, share and connect – while making new friends at the same time!’ Yearn to Learn also support the work of locally-based, global NGO The Thin Green Line Foundation by donating a percentage of every ticket sold. Their classes take place in the evenings and are just a stone’s throw from Melbourne CBD in Southbank. And best of all? Each Yearn to Learn class is only $16-$25 per person, making it a great (and affordable) option for some crafty evening fun. Book into one of their November or December classes by next Friday 7th November and go in the draw to win two tickets to the fabulous ‘The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier’ exhibition currently running at The National Gallery of Victoria!
