Been yearning to grow a moustache but your boss/partner/dog won’t let you? Is your upper lip dying to show the world how stylish it can be? Well here’s your chance: November 1st marks the start of “Movember” all around the world! Thousands of men now have a valid excuse to leave their razor alone and to indulge in some [extra] self-grooming as they partake in this hearty awareness and fundraising campaign – all in the name of men’s health.
Let me allow the official site to explain more:
“On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven 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 the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
“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.”
And if all that moustache growing seems like too much work, there are events and competitions to keep you interested, plus your valiant efforts are rewarded by Gala Parties all around the world at the end of month. OR, log on to the site and sponsor another guy’s epic handlebar tash.
Since 2003 over £100million has been raised in total! With the numbers involved growing year on year. And all you’ve got to do is…NOT shave! To find out more, get involved, or learn about the charitable beneficiaries, go to their website.
