What is Movember? Men who participate in Movember (called Mo Bros) take action to change the face of men’s health by starting clean-shaven on Movember 1st and growing just a moustache (no beards, no goatees) for the month November. Movember is more than just an excuse to grow a fine piece of moustachery, it’s about creating conversations while raising funds and awareness for men’s health. It’s about having fun and doing good.
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. We achieve this by challenging men to grow, and women to support, moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
The Movember community has raised over $559 million, which has funded 832 programs in 21 countries. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues.
Men who support Movember, called Mo Bros, start by signing up at Movember.com. Mo Bros start Movember 1st clean-shaven, then grow and groom their moustache, for the rest of the month, raising money along the way. Women who support Movember, called Mo Sistas, also start by signing up at Movember.com. Mo Sistas champion the Mo by registering and supporting the Mo Bros in their life, spreading the important message of men’s health, fundraising and organizing events.
Movember will get men to grow moustaches and the community to support them by creating an innovative, fun and engaging annual Movember campaign, that results in:
- Funding for the Movember Foundation’s men’s health programs
- Conversations about men’s health that lead to:
- Awareness and understanding of the health risks men face
- Men taking action to remain well
Prostate and Testicular Cancer
- Men living with prostate or testicular cancer have the treatment and care needed to be physically and mentally well
- Men and boys are mentally healthy and take action to remain so
- When men and boys experience mental health problems they take action early
- Men and boys with mental health problems are not discriminated against
