What Causes do Movember and No Shave November Support?
Did you know the movement started, solely, as an effort to raise awareness for men’s health? In fact, the first organized event was held in Australia in 2003 to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancers. The first participants grew mustaches and coined the term "Movember". Who doesn’t love growing a solid handlebar mustache for the health and welfare of all men?
Since then the movement (and facial hair) has grown worldwide. Now millions of men are showing up for work on November 1st with clean shaven baby faces to support local, national, and worldwide charities and organizations. The Movember movement alone has raised $994 million in the past 17 years.
So simply stated...
The goal = Raise awareness for men’s health
The task = Shave on November 1 and then don’t shave until the end of November
Your face goes from a sandwich eater on November 1 to your very own your sandwich board to help promote awareness and raise money for men’s health and well-being.
