Take the Five-A-Day Challenge for GivingTuesdayNow

Talk is free. Give generously.
Mental Health

GivingTuesday in May? Definitely – because in these challenging times, it’s more important than ever to come back to the basics: generosity and friendship.
Created in response to COVID-19, #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5th is a global day of philanthropic unity and connection. In support, Movember is taking this opportunity to throw a megaphone behind an important mental health message: give five minutes of your time to stay connected with the people you care about – it’s the Movember Five-A-Day Challenge and we’re calling on you to take it on.
As we navigate the world of COVID-19 and physical distancing, many of us are dealing with stress, anxiety, loneliness and/or financial hardship; or the situation has amplified pre-existing stress or mental health issues. That’s why it’s more important than ever to check in on each other. A five-minute chat to ask ‘hey, how’s your day been?’ is all it takes to let someone know you care about them. Never underestimate how meaningful those five minutes can be for both of you.
On #GivingTuesdayNow, give your time. Give it generously to your friends and family and commit to giving it on the days that follow with the Five-A-Day Challenge. Let’s keep the lines of communication open and buzzing every day – let’s stay connected, let’s look after each other and let’s get through this together.
There’s a fun and easy way to show your support and encourage others to give five for a friend: use video call, snap a screenshot and share it on social media with #GivingTuesdayNow and @Movember.
