Movember, Movember the Mo of Movember

movemberCall it what you want

The moustache. The stash. Lip tickler. Soup strainer. ‘stache. Lip spinach. Cookie duster. Muzzy. Upper lip plumage. Misplaced eyebrow. Dot and dash. Mouser. Tash. Face fungus.

Or just for the month of Movember – the Mo.

That hirsute symbol of manliness and virility has gone by many names, but for the next month (the one previously known as November) it shall be refereed to as the Mo.

Men all over the world are being encouraged to donate their face for 30 days to grow and nurture their 100% face grown Mos.

What exactly is Movember?

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for prostate cancer.

At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo, raising money along the way to benefit men’s health – specifically prostate and testicular cancer.

What can you do?

Well, if you’re a bloke you can register as a Mo Bro. And get to growing that lip tickler. (Check the rules for Mo Bros below). You can go it solo, or join a team to help share the joy of mo growing and combine your fund raising efforts.

If you don’t want to (or can’t) grow a Mo for whatever reason, Boyish Man, then you can show your support by donating to a Mo Bro or Mo Team.

Ladies (and those Boyish Men) can also get involved by acting as support for their Mo Bro and, while growing a Mo is left to the guys, Mo Sistas (a woman who loves a Mo and wants to support men’s health) do a lot of important work for Movember. They can get involved by:

Finally, and most importantly, give the Mo Bros large doses of Mo Recognition – a smile or nod of recognition for a Mo Bro’s moustache growing and fundraising efforts is always appreciated!

The Mo Bro Rules

  1. Once registered at each Mo Bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face.
  2. For the entire month of Movember, each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache.
  3. There is to be no joining of the Mo to your side burns. (That’s considered a beard.)
  4. There is to be no joining of the handlebars to your chin. (That’s considered a goatee.)
  5. Each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true country gentleman.
