Movember

I posted about this last year and probably the year before. I love the name, I love the visibility of the campaign, I love the link to the charity. It just works so well.  And its really grown (ha ha) since it started 6 years ago. It is one of those ideas where you say….why didnt I think of that! Well done to the Mo Bro’s and Sista’s raising lots of money.

If you dont know about Movember here is some info:

Movember is an annual, month-long celebration of the moustache, highlighting men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer.

The idea for Movember came about in 2003 when a few mates were having a beer in a small bar in Melbourne, Australia. Inspired by the women’s health movement, it was recognized that men were lacking a way to engage and actively involve themselves in their own health. During a conversation about fashion and past trends, the idea came up to bring the moustache back for one month, and in doing so, have some fun, raise a small amount of money and hopefully encourage men to talk about their health with each other.

Since this time, Movember has continued to grow each year, both in terms of participation numbers and funds raised. In its first year, 30 Mo Bros took part in Movember and last year, across the globe more than 173,000 Mo Bro & Sistas got on board, raising more than €14 million across the Movember’s men’s health partners gloabally.
