Look out ladies and gents; it's officially Movember…….
Whether you are a sports fan that believes in the luck of the "stache" or a man that thinks it makes you look appealing to your potential partner, November might be the only month in the year where it is encouraged to grow out those scratchy whiskers and food catchers.
Welcome to the month-long event involving the growing of moustaches (and other facial hair I'm sure) to raise awareness of prostate and other male cancer, and associated charities.
"From 30 Mo Bros in Melbourne, Australia in 2003 to 1.1 million Mo's in 2012, Movember, through the power of the moustache has truly become a global movement that is changing the face of men's health."
Did you know that "as of 2011 Canadians were the largest contributors to the Movember charities of any nation"? Congratulations to the men in Canada! What an amazing movement you are participating in. Whether you are raising awareness for a cause that has affected you or a buddy of yours, you should be commended for putting up with the itchy, hot, irritating, not to mention age increasing facial coverage that you endure! Just kidding guys, you look great, and for those of you that do not suite the extra fuzz, it's only one month and really is a great cause. Kudos Men!
