Movember was started in 2003 in Australia and as of last year, 21 countries took part officially. They have raised £346 million since 2003 but the awareness they have raised about men’s health has been even more phenomenal.
Even more people take part every year and like Breast Cancer awareness month (October) it is doing wonders for getting awareness out there and raising money for research in several different areas of men’s health including testicular cancer, prostate cancer and mental health.
I got to use my Moustache Monocle design from the Bundle Monster CYO collection, I also used the I from the ‘I <3 Geeks’ design to kind of make it into an I <3 Moustaches nail,
If you want to get involved in raising awareness but can’t grow a moustache, find creative ways to get one, for example, printable moustaches, jewellery in the shape of a moustache, moustache mugs, cat-staches or simply just hold your (or someone else’s if that is what you’re into) hair across your top lip, then take a selfie and post to social media with the #misstache.
You can also donate here through Movember or here through cancer research.
