Movember is back – and the forecast is calling for moustaches all month long. Men worldwide are taking to the streets with unshaved faces and huge grins about all the awesome work they’re doing for a good cause.
The purpose of Movember is not only to annoy women, but to raise awareness for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. Men start clean shaven on November 1st, and then continue on to grow serious ‘staches until November 30th.
Okay…so we’re going to see more handlebars than usual when we hit the town. Are they sexy? Depends on who you ask. But they’re an awesome way to raise awareness — a true conversation starter! We haven’t seen this many awesome moustaches walking around since the ‘70’s, so we’re hoping people are inclined to ask about the reasoning behind it. After all, that’s the idea.
In addition to sporting a ‘stache, men raise funds for their moustache-growing efforts by joining teams and garnering supporters to make donations. In the end, the money raised is donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG to fund education and research, among other things.

Friendly reminder: Trimming is allowed. Men – please don’t forget this important step. You know, for the sake of society.
