Well, it’s that special time of year again…Movember! C’mon..let’s all cheer, drink a beer, have no fear, Movember’s here. (I just made that little ditty up. I can do it all day).
Now, seriously, what is Movember you say? Well:
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Czech Republic. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
Now that is some awesomeness for a good cause! It’s kind of like October being the month of PINK.
Of course, I have massive stache envy. I can’t grow a solid, manly bit of facial hair if you paid me. Really, it’s ridiculous…though I am not hairy in general, so that’s no a bad thing (TMI, but, like, whatevs bro).
So, read up, take it in, bask in the glory, and encourage the men you know to get out there and grow a stache! It’s for their health!
