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.
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.
