It is the month of November. It’s the time of the year where you see a growing trend of men sporting moustaches. Here’s the low down on what it’s all about.
What is Movember?
Moustache + November = Movember
The Movember foundation is the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health. With an official presence in 21 countries, the Movember Foundation is committed to driving significant improvements for the prioritised men’shealth issues – prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Why you should sign up for Movember? Simple. Raise awareness and funds men’s health issues. Become a Mo Bro or a Mo Sista and support the work of the Movember Foundation.
What happens after Movember?
At the end of the month, the Movember community celebrates their Mo growing efforts, either by joining one of the official Movember Gala Partés, held around the world. Or, by hosting their own end of month event with colleagues, friends or community groups.
The trick is to hold your head up high during the first few days of fuzziness above your lip. Stay firm during the ‘you’re not actually growing a moustache, are you?’ enquiries that will come two weeks in.
Don’t panic when your other half ‘has a terrible headache’ and rolls over rather than come face to face with your manly bush. Be strong, brothers…. and grow that Mo!
