Did you notice more moustaches and facial hair last month than usual?
It was likely thanks to Movember, an organization who encourages men around the world to stop shaving their faces to increase awareness and funds for men’s health.
Men sprouting awesome ‘staches become spokesmen for men’s health issues, specifically testicular and prostate cancer. They also seek sponsorship for their efforts. In 2011, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas raised 126.3 million dollars toward their cause.
The month is capped off by a killer party for the men, known as Mo Bros, and their supportive partners. Awards are given out for Best Mo in Character, Miss Movember and Man of Movember 2012.
What a fun way to raise money and awareness for men’s health!
