MOVEMBER – Grow it if you got it
Personally, this is my favorite time of year. November 1st – December 31st. It’s finally chilly enough to wear a hoody full time, loads of great concerts coming thru town, and of course tons of good eating surrounding the holidays. But November 1st also represents the start of an amazing global cause, Movember.
MO-VEM-BER? It’s a reference to that creepy patch of facial hair between your nose and upper lip, also referred to as a lip curtain, soup strainer, crumb catcher, cookie duster and the classic ‘stache. For the entire month of November men are growing out their mustaches to bring awareness to mens health issues including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
We’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. We’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We’re independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years we’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
You can help donate money as an individual or put together a team of classmates, workmates, friends, whatever and help raise money for this great cause while creeping out the folks at the coffee shop whipping up your morning nectar with your new found facial hair. Grow your mustaches proudly! I am!
