Movember and why is becoming so famous

A couple of weeks ago, I met Toby who explained to me and some friends of mine about Movember. At first we all had surprised looks and probably thought that no one from our group will do it. Three weeks after, my husband has a funny looking ‘stache, that I think attracts some intrigued stares.

But what is Movember?

“The Mo, slang for moustache, and November come together each year for Movember.

Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st  clean shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month.  The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.”

You got the idea, right? But I thought that this would be just guys trying to look ridiculous for one month. Or just finally having an excuse to grow a moustache, as they always wanted to do so, but never had a reason 🙂 But (again) when we met them, half way through the month, we got to know some passionate bunch of guys, who believe in this cause and want to do their best to go around proudly with their ‘stache and hopefully gather some money.

The money will be used for research for prostate cancer and has already had a great impact.
