Let’s Talk: Movember or “No Shave” November

It wasn’t until this year that I actually thought to ask “why” when it came to the month of November – or Movember. I just sort of let it slide when all the guys around all stopped shaving. It didn’t make sense, but by my mid-twenties, I have kind of learned just to not ask when guys do something real strange ;).

However, all the guys around us growing mustaches throughout the 11th month of every year actually has a purpose – to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer during Prostate Cancer Awareness month. No, I’m not making this up. In fact, Movember has an official website, believe it or not – us.movember.com. “Mo Bros”, as they have been dubbed, in many cases will get sponsorship for growing their ‘staches, raising money for the cause all while being “walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November” as the Movember website puts it.

Well, they definitely got me curious enough to ask (finally), so I guess Movember is doing it’s job.

Any of the men in your lives getting a little scruffy with it this month? What do you think, it is an effective way to raise Prostate Cancer Awareness and funds for the cause?
