Movember, the month formerly known as ‘November’, is launching its 2016 campaign, encouraging men and women across the nation to sign up and grow a Mo (moustache), or throw or go to a Movember event to raise funds for men’s health and stop men dying too young.
With money already raised, the Movember Foundation has funded over 1,200 game-changing programmes in prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide prevention around the world, whilst positively challenging the way in which men’s health issues are researched and addressed.
All you have to do is sign up to grow your moustache for 30 days. Or if you want to take your Mo to the next level, you can sacrifice your beard, auction off your face to the highest donor or dye your Mo a different colour every day.
Mo Sistas can get behind the Mo Bros in their life, or get a little creative – anything to attract attention and raise funds.
Choose how you’ll get involved and get your friends, your family or your workplace on board.
Owen Sharp, Movember Foundation CEO, says: “There is a lot being done, but it’s not happening fast enough to have real impact.
“The Movember Foundation is uniquely placed to address the crisis at a global level. By engaging with men where they are, and understanding what works best, the Foundation is helping make change happen sooner, before it’s too late.”
