The End of Movember

(C) Finntann

Western Hero ~ Western Mustache

Moustache + November = Movember

Started in Australia in 1999 Movember seeks to raise awareness of issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and other men's health issues. To increase awareness and provide a visual cue, Movember as you might have guessed, involves growing a mustache in November.  So far Movember has spread throughout Australia, South Africa, Europe and North America. 

In 2011 Movember merged with the UK based Tacheback (Cashback + Moustache), a charitable event to raise money for the Everyman Campaign a UK male cancer fundraiser.  Movember's US partners are The Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG.
