I once used to call them “porn ‘staches” and thought they were terrible, horrible, no good, very bad relics of the past… guess what – I changed my mind ! Have you wondered what all the fuss is about and why mustaches have been popping up just about everywhere this month ? Well, then you’re in the right place because today I will tell you everything you want to know about the month of Movember and it’s importance for husbands, sons, grandfathers, fathers, brothers, uncles – men in general everywhere !
Each year Movember.com asks men – a.k.a. Mo Bros – across the world to grow a “moustache” during the month of November with the aim of raising awareness and funds for men’s health issues like prostate and testicular cancer. While, Movember moustaches were first grown in Australia back in 2003, the concept of Movember and its men’s health messages have spread with official campaigns now in 22 countries across the globe!
And here is how it works: after first registering at Movember.com, guys then start November 1st with a clean-shaven face and for the remainder of the month dedicate themselves to growing a greatest moustache EVER to grace the earth. At the end of the month, it’s traditional for Mo Bros and Mo Sistas (a.k.a. the supportive women in their lives) to celebrate their efforts by throwing a Movember Party and awarding the highly sought after titles of Miss Movember and Man of Movember.
So, what do you say, guys ? How about it ? There are still more than two weeks left – plenty of time to register and sport a trendy new moustache of your own… If it looks good on David Beckham it will sure look AMAZING on you !
