Movember, Will you be going growing your stache?

Will you be registering to grow a moustache for a good cause, I know I will be. In order to understand Movember to you, I used Movember South Africa’s explanation, which goes as follows: During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

On Movember 1st, guys register at with a clean-shave face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into fine moustachery. Mo Sistas are the women who register to support the men in their lives, raising funds by seeking sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts. And No this doesn’t mean that women have to grow moustaches, you would be supporting your Mo Bro. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month (30 days), Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
