Are the men in your town noticeably fuzzier these days? Has your guy’s razor been abandoned for weeks? That’s because it’s Movember, darlings! This time of year men all over the country band together in mustache mayhem to grow their whiskers in support of prostate cancer research,education, and awareness.
More than 3 million men (Mo Bros) and women (Mo Sistas as we’re lovingly called) participate in this worthy fundraising effort. According to the official Movember website, the funds raised in November “support world-class men’s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.” All of these programs are directed by the Movember Foundation and “are focused on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, staying mentally healthy, living with and beyond mental illness and research to achieve our vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.”
If you want to help in the effort to stop cancer and promote education, you can donate directly through the Movember site or purchase some of these amazing products. Proceeds from each benefit the Movember Foundation.
Method Soap for Hope
Not only do Method’s male employees grow mustaches and raise money for Movember each year, but also, the company is making a donation to the Movember Foundation. To raise awareness they’ve created two new hand washes available at grocery stores across the country that feature the “Soap for Hope” tag.
TOMS Movember Grey Suede Men’s Classics
One of our favorite do-good retailers, Toms Shoes, is also getting in on the Movember mania with mustache-adorned shoes to benefit the cause.
