November is here and guys everywhere are throwing out their razors. If you are one of the many individuals out there who is choosing to participate in “No Shave November” for fun, you may be happy to hear that growing out your mustache may also help men suffering from cancer and mental health issues.
Movember is a global charity that encourages men to grow out their mustaches and spread the news about men’s health during its month-long journey. The men who register to be a part of Movember, also known as Mo Bros, are to start the month with a clean shave.
Members try to get family and friends involved by asking for donations. As the days go by, your mustache is going to start bringing in attention. Once a stranger asks about your ‘stache, that’s your cue to start explaining what the charity does and inform those individuals about men’s health awareness.
This charity is not only limited to men. Women can register, too, and become Mo Sistas. Mo Sistas are not expected to grow an awesome mustache during the month, but instead to encourage the men in their lives to try to grow out their facial hair for the cause. At the end of the month, the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas can either hold or attend events to celebrate their hair growth and hard work toward making a change.
Movember holds gala parties that are unique, just like their members. At these galas, members are given awards such as Lame Mo for those who had some difficulty growing out their mustache, and Miss Movember for the Mo Sista who had the best Movember spirit.
This charity gives its members the opportunity to not only raise awareness for a great cause, but to have an amazing time while doing so.
