Happy Movember

November 2, 2011 – Apparently November isn’t just about writing a novel.

It’s also about growing facial hair.

Movember is the moustache growing charity event held during November each year that changes the face of men’s health by raising awareness to prostate cancer and other issues of men’s health. Once participants register at www.movember.com, they begin the month clean-shaven, and for the rest of the month they put away the razors to help ultimately raise research funds.

Movember began in Melbourne Australia and has since become a global movement. Last year, over 64,500 American men joined the cause.

Move over pink ribbons – men want a piece of this action, too.
