What is Movember?
Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.
Men (also known as Mo Bros) sign up online at Movember.com. Starting clean-shaven on November 1st, these men donate their face for 30 days by growing and grooming the best moustache they can muster. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for men's health raising funds and awareness along the way. Women (also known as Mo Sistas) play a key supporting role by signing up as team captains, recruiting Mo Bros, helping to raise funds, and encouraging the men in their life to take action when it comes to their health.
Mo growth is seen around the globe each November. In 2014, official campaigns will be held in 21 countries across five continents.
