Movember or men’s health awareness month has been growing in prevalence over the past few years. One might argue in a few years to come it can be at the same level of relevance to Pinktober / breast cancer awareness month.
According to wikipedia movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. In recent times it's has not been just limited to the coveted mustache but facial hair in general (As not all men can grow a proper “stache”).
By encouraging and educating men about Movember, awareness and empowerment also spreads and thus encouraging early detection, diagnosis, screening and by this reducing the number of casualties. The Movember movement is dedicated to a cause that is saving lives. In addition all guys look better with facial hair! So groom that stache !!!!
