SUPPORTING MEN'S HEALTH
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health.
The Movember community has raised $559 million to date and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health problems.
The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won't stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.
HOW FUNDS ARE RAISED
Guys take action by signing up, shaving down their face on Movember 1, and growing a moustache for the month. They grow and groom their new Mo (slang for moustache), asking friends and family to donate to their efforts. And since Movember is already well passed its 1st week, it's the community's job to support those who have already signed up.
Mo Bros, with their new moustaches, become walking, talking billboards, and like a run or walk for charity, they use their hairy ribbon to spark conversations around the often ignored issue of men’s health and seek to raise funds to support the work of the Movember Foundation.
Movember’s not just for men. Women who support men’s health, known as Mo Sistas, are an important part of Movember’s success. Mo Sistas REGISTER, start a team and fundraise – they do everything Mo Bros do, they just don’t grow a Mo. Mo Sistas are champions of Movember, rallying the men in their lives to join the movement, grow moustaches, and have important conversations about men’s health.
DONATE AND MORE
*If you wanted to keep your donation as localized as possible, Jose Alfredo Nava III is participating in Movember this year. To donate to his efforts or just visit his page, go to http://mobro.co/josealfredonava3*
Every penny counts, so don't worry if you can't give a lot. But, if you aren't able to donate at all, the best thing to do is spread the word. Simply talking about the organization is an effective and appreciated way to give back to the men all over the world.
