Before we get to the fun part, did you know that…
*1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime;
*This year 37,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed;
*1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime;
*26% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women;
*There is a charity that is increasing the awareness of prostate and testicular cancer around the world and rather than a Pink Ribbon for Breast Cancer you can grow a moustache;
*November has now being replaced with MOvember as a dedicated month to this cause.
Well here are your answers, Movember is a month fully dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health; specifically prostate and testicular cancer around the world.
This campaign was started by a group of friends from Melbourne, Australia who came together by growing their moustache for a cause and like everything cool to do for a cause, it expanded like wild fire. Every year since its inception, funds raised are intended to help make a tangible difference to the lives of others through the MOVEMBER Foundation as well as men’s health partners, The Prostate Cancer Charity and The Institute of Cancer Research. The charity funds worldwide awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible. Unfortunately, the only African country fully engrossed and supporting this is South Africa.
For more details on how the funds raised from previous campaigns have been used or how to be a part of the MOvement and the impact Movember is having please click on this link below which takes you to the South African site.
So guys, please give those ‘BALLS’ a constant check to make sure nothing is lurking but in the meantime…
Below are the different types of Moustache styles a man can have – visit your best barber to get you one of them for a cause. LOVE THEM ALL!!!
But I think there should be more designs than this actually….where is the ‘Hitler’ design for example? Maybe removed for Political Correctness?
