November has been claimed as Movember by over a million people around the world — and it’s not just about growing a moustache. The funds raised in Canada support the number one male cancer, prostate cancer. In 2010, nearly 119,000 Canadians raised $22.3 million CAD.
George Pearson has signed up for the Movember cause — please donate by visiting the “George Pearson’s moustache” team on the Movember website.
From the Movember website:
“On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.”
Not everyone can grow a mustache — but that shouldn’t stop you from wearing one in support of Movember!
