The Movember mustachio movement

The Movember fundraising and awareness campaign sees men support men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer

During the month of November, the Movember fundraising and awareness campaign sees men support men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives, through growing a moustache.

On Nov. 1, men register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these “Mo Bros” groom, trim and wax their way into a fine mustachio, while they gain support of donating sponsors.

Women can also participate in a supporting role as Mo Sistas, to help Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate by throwing or attending a Movember party.

Check out the website www.movember.com for more information, to register or to donate.
