We appreciate all efforts that raise awareness and funds for cancer, and are honored if others are inspired by Movember to create other facial hair initiatives. This is an important cause we must combat together. But those who Mo, know: Movember is proud to be the global moustache-growing charity raising funds and awareness for men's health, prostate and testicular cancer, living with and beyond cancer, and men's mental health.
We say no to beards, no to goatees – we are only about the moustache. Why only the Mo? The growth of a new moustache sparks conversations, which in turn generates awareness and educates people on the health issues men face. A beard or a goatee doesn't achieve that. Awareness and education then prompts people to take action and change their behavior, which is impacting and saving lives today. During Movember, each moustache generates more than 2,400 conversations about men's health.
Since 2003, when Movember began, over 3 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas in 21 countries have raised $446 million for men's health, funding more than 570 programs globally in the areas of education and awareness, living with and beyond cancer, prostate and testicular cancer research, and men's mental health. If you want to join the truly global movement focused on men's health, sign up for Movember. Now is the time - No Mo, No Mercy.
Viva la Mo!
