A lot of great things happen in the month of November: the start of college basketball, Guy Fawkes Day, Thanksgiving, leaves turning, Christmas preparation and the like. However, November has some other significance, thanks to the brilliant minds at Movember.com, who use the month of thanks to recognize certain men’s health issues like prostate cancer.
And it’s all done by growing and rocking a gnarly “moustache” — the Aussie spelling, of course.
As indicated, the Movember team is partnering with the Prostate Cancer Foundation to help raise awareness. All Movember donations will be given directly to the Foundation. Interested parties can join the Movember movement as either part of a team or an individual and there are a number of galas toward the end of the month to celebrate these fabulous works of lip-hair art.
About the Movember movement
Since Movember’s inception in 2003, almost 200,000 men around the world have sported a Mo and more than $29 million has been raised globally for prostate cancer research. Movember is the biggest international event supporting prostate cancer and we want to make it a household name in the U.S.
If you’d like to join the IF team — the Intentional Staches, of course — you can do so here. We’d certainly love to have you and your assistance with the Movember cause.
