The best dadvice I ever got

Pearls of wit and wisdom from the men who made us who we are.
Real Stories

This Father’s Day, in honor of dads and father figures everywhere, we’re sharing some of our favorite Dadvice – those pearls of wit and wisdom from the men we love and those we’ve lost.

From everyday mantras, to life lessons, to winning dance moves, we’re deep diving into that special brand of guidance dads are famous for.

Movember’s mission is to keep fathers, partners, brothers and sons around for as long as possible. To hear their Dadvice and watch them pass it down through generations. This Father’s Day, donate to stop the men we love from dying too young.

Here’s some of our favorite Dadvice shared from our Mo Bros and Mo Sisters. We want to hear from you too - what’s the best Dadvice you ever got? Just follow the instructions for sharing.

  1. Dig out an old school childhood photograph or current day photo with you and your father figure. Moustaches are a bonus.
  2. Post on Father's Day alongside a quote of the best 'Dadvice' you ever got. Could be words of wisdom, wit or all out random.
  3. Tag @Movember #Movember #Dadvice
  4. Challenge your friends to do the same.
