Men all over the world are putting their best face forward for Moustache November, or “Movember,” a global men’s health campaign to raise awareness of prostate and testicular cancers. On November 1, men began growing moustaches and, except for minor grooming purposes, aren’t shaving for the entire month. As their facial hair grows, it serves as a conversation starter about men’s health and about prostate and testicular cancer in particular.

for men's health.
Movember originated in Melbourne, Australia in 2003 when two friends decided to bring the moustache back into fashion. From its humble beginnings of 30 participants and zero dollars raised, Movember quickly became a global success. By 2011, Movember established formal fundraising campaigns in 14 countries and has raised almost $300 million.
