Since 2004 the eleventh month of the year has got a new name: Movember. It is a combination between the two words moustache and November. But what is up with this? Basically speaking this month is thought to bring attention to mens health. How does that work? Let’s see. There is an organization that wants to raise awareness for the topic of prostate cancer and so they came up with an idea. Anybody who wants to take part should get a clean shave at November 1 and create his own unique moustache during November. In this way he becomes a messenger and will be respectfully called Mo Bro. If you like you can also register on their website.
Somehow talking about mens health seems to be a big problem in this society and so Movember is a very good chance to bring a little bit of light into the dark. The month and the awesome looking moustaches around the world are not only meant be talked about. You can also donate some money that will go directly into medical research. Today Movember is the biggest private fundraising organization worldwide. So grab your razor, shave yourself and grow an awesome moustache to become a real Mo Bro.
