Movember, the month long initiative that aims to raise money and awareness for men's health by encouraging men to ditch their razors and grow their most impressive moustache for the next 30 days is under way.
Movember is a yearly global charitable campaign that celebrates the epic moustache while highlighting and raising money for men’s health issues – specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical activity. During the month of November, men try to grow a moustache that Tom Selleck would envy and raise funds for various charities.
In the last 11 years, according to the campaign’s website, Movember has raised a whopping $677 million for men’s health; last November, it raised $24 million in Canada alone.
This is the opportunity for men to grow the moustache of their dreams, so everyone is encouraged to participate. Even when your stache' is in its awkward, creepy stage, keep it growing! Then at the end of the month when your moustache is in full bloom, people will be applauding your efforts and perhaps encouraging you to keep the ol' duster!
Not able to grow a moustache this year, but still want to join in on the cause?
We get it, sometimes your girlfriend thinks you look creepy with a moustache. Or your boss doesn't agree with rocking a bushy mo'. Or heck, you just down right cant grow one. But don't worry, Yo Sox can help you make up for your lack of a stache' with a pair of our awesome moustache socks for both men and women!
