Movember: Sport A 'Stache To Support Men's Health

Posted: Updated:

What is it about prostate cancer that makes men want to grow a moustache for the entire month of November? Oh yeah, the international men's heath campaign, Movember. That's "Mo" for Moustache, and the Movember Foundation wants men to sport their best handlebar, soul patch or aspiring scruff to "change the face of men's health" by raising funds and awareness for men's cancers-- specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

Money raised this month will go straight to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and The Lance Armstrong Foundation. If you're a man ready to show your support by bringing back the facial hair beloved by Frenchmen and porn stars alike, you can shave clean and register right now (it's okay that you're a couple days late, we won't tell.) 'Stache loving ladies, don't feel left out-- there's a spot for you too. Women can sign up to spread awareness and collect donations from the hairy men in their lives.

Check out the Movember site to learn more about getting involved in the month-long movement and to find an end-of-month Movember gala to flaunt your new facial hair.
