Movember1st November 2011
It’s that time of year again where men all across the world stand tall, unite, take action and….grow a moustache.
Yep, that’s right, it’s Movember! And Interstate are this year already in full swing raising money for this fantastic campaign.
For those who may not be so familiar with Movember, allow me to fill you in:
“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.”
Since Movember was first created in 2004, it has been growing at a rapid rate, and raising a fantastic amount of money. in 2010, in the UK alone, £11.7 million was raised!
The majority of the gents at Interstate were more than willing to sacrifice their ‘street cred’ for the month of November to help support Movember.
It is now the 1st of November, the 1st day of Movember, and we have some very clean shaven faces in the studio including my own, which is proving to be interesting as I have myself been sporting a beard for the last year.
We joined Movember last week and are already steadily raising a tidy little sum of money!
