  • Temporary Tattoo Tidbits: Movember

    Every November, do you wonder why there’s a sudden sprout in the number of moustache-wielding men around you?  Did you wonder if it were a seasonal thing? Or something to do with the month of November?

    Let us demystify the month of the moustache to you.

    Movember (Moustache+ November)

    Movember Moustache Image via FitforWork

    Movember is an annual event held in the month of November by the Movember Foundation wherein men (called Mo Bros) grow moustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. The goal of the Movember movement is to ‘’change the face of men’s health”. The movement focuses on men’s health issues such as prostrate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide, and encourages early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.


    Two mates (Travis Garone and Luke Slattery) met up for a quiet beer in Melbourne, Australia, and the idea that sparked Movember was born. The moustache had all but disappeared from fashion trends. Could they bring it back? They found 30 guys willing to take up the challenge.

    The Movember movement has since spread to a million moustaches all over the world.

    The Challenge

    For 30 days of November, Mo Bros are challenged to grow a moustache. The Mo Bros become walking brand ambassadors for the movement, spurring conversations, awareness and raising funds.

    Women (Mo Sistas) can be a part of Movember by egging the men in their lives to participate and take their health seriously. Mo Sistas can sport fake moustaches (temporary tattoos) to raise awareness and funds.

    In the end of November, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their Movember journey by throwing their own Movember parties or by attending the official Gala Parties held around the world.

  • A Wish and a Prayer: Jolene’s Bright Smile

    ‘There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing a happy and smiling child. A child’s smile is worth more than all the money in the world.’ -Lionel Messi

    Make-A-Wish Foundation is dedicated to granting the heartfelt wishes of children aged between 3 to 18 years, who live with life-threatening medical conditions. They aim to create unforgettable and meaningful experiences when making a child’s wish come true.

    On August 9, Make-A-Wish, Singapore made little Jolene’s wish come true. Jolene’s wish was for a standing frame equipment. Her equipment helps her with standing up for a longer time, improving her posture and providing hip stability and cardio fitness, which she previously did not have with lying on a bed.

    Take a look at Jolene’s bright smile when her wish came true.

    jolene_make_a_wish_singapore1 Make-a-wish-Singapore: Jolene smiles brightly

    To further widen Jolene’s smile, Gumtoo sponsored National Day temporary tattoos for her wish-reveal day.

    We at Gumtoo try our best to spread cheer and happiness with our colorful and pure-fun temporary tattoos. And when our tattoos brighten a child’s smile, we think our job is well-done.

    Good luck, dear Jolene. Keep smiling!
