Movember shave

Have you seen more facial hair on men lately? Well, it’s probably not laziness, he’s probably participating in the annual mustache growing month that takes place each November, known as “Movember”. Movember is an increasingly popular charity event held each year where men grow their facial hair (typically a moustache) to raise money to “change the face of men’s health”. The funds are raised for cancer’s that affect men, but has evolved to focus especially on prostate cancer awareness.

Inspired by the increasingly popular month of October and it’s association with women’s breast cancer awareness, Movember has created a simple way to do a month-long fundraising event by challenging men to begin the month off by shaving their facial hair and growing it out throughout the month to raise awareness by starting conversations of men’s health. Participants like it because it’s an easy way to raise money for charity. This year there were an estimated 400,000 participants. Even though the month of November is almost over, there’s still time. Log on to the Movember website and sign up and post pictures of your stages. With this now being the leading fundraiser for November, mark your calendars every year and inform your family and friends so that they may donate to the Movember charity.
