Morning coffee news roundup: teen girl does Movember, Sally Ann fraud and the Kingston Grinch
We at Bunch have a big love-on for Movember. Today, our hearts warmed with news of a teen girl in the UK who is sporting a different stache everyday this month to support the cause. And her school is totally behind her, unlike another teen in her country who wanted to honour his granddad’s experience with prostate cancer by sprouting some facial hair, but whose school nixed the idea. Because why would you encourage a child to do something good when you could discourage them, right? (For more great pics on women and girls doing Movember, flash back to Nici and Amelie’s staches from last year.)
2. Committing fraud hits a new low. Over the past two years, $2 million worth of toy donations have disappeared from a Toronto Sally Ann warehouse.
3. Mean hits a new low. A real life Grinch was arrested at the Kingston Santa Claus parade this weekend after telling kids Santa isn’t real. Apparently, the man wasn’t dressed in a scrappy Santa Claus outfit, but his hair was gelled into Grinch-like hair horns. Constable Steve Koopman of the Kingston police said that “unfortunately” folks can’t be arrested for crushing kids’ dreams, but they could arrest the man for causing a disturbance for being drunk.
