Movember is the global men's health charity engaging men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) for the 30 days of November. Through the power of the moustache, awareness and funds are raised for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
The growth of a moustache on an otherwise bare lip sparks both public and private discussion; Mo Bros effectively becoming a walking, talking billboards for men’s health for 30 days, raising funds along the way.
Participation is really easy - men and women register at Movember.com to grow or support a Mo. Men start November 1 clean-shaven and grow their moustache for 30 days, getting friends, family and colleagues to donate to their Mo-growing efforts. Women are very important to the Movember campaign. Mo Sistas get involved in the same way as Mo Bros, except they don’t grow a Mo. They register at Movember.com, start a team, recruit the men in their lives to participate, donate, fundraise, and plan and participate in events.
Movember, along with our men’s health partners Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LIVESTRONG Foundation work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting innovative, world-class programs in three areas: awareness/education, survivorship and research.
