Once upon a time, a couple of Aussies had a chat over a couple of beers (shock!) and decided that they would address a serious ‘men’s health issue’ in a very unusual way!
Long story short… they decided it was time that Prostate Cancer (and awareness of) was brought out from behind closed doors. Grow a ‘tash, change your appearance and the face of mens health at the same time, and raise some money for Prostate Cancer Research while you are at it!
They then rounded up some sponsors and challenged their mates to a bit of a contest – you know, the whole ‘mine is bigger than yours thing’ – and the global Movember Foundation was born.
This foundation exists to raise funds to support local prostate cancer foundations in YOUR country, as well as promote awareness worldwide. It works well with over GBP26 million raised in the 2009 campaign alone.
Girls, you can support the guys by registering and donating on their website.
It’s painless, it’s fun, it’s easy to do, and it’s for a worthy cause. Check it our HERE!
