Right, it’s almost time once again for the moustaches to come out in full force… because Movember is upon us ladies & gents.

For those new to Movember (and I’m assuming you’ve been stuck in an underground chamber of sorts), it’s an annual campaign which kicks off on 1 November each year and aims to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues by encouraging men from all around the world to grow a glorious mo over a period of 30 days.  These Mo Brosessentially become walking billboards for men’s health issues, starting up conversations with other men around sensitive issues they wouldn’t normally feel comfortable talking about, collecting donations to help support men’s cancer research and more, or even getting sponsorship for their fine “moustachery”.

Inspired by the global trend of proudly supporting locally grown & manufactured products, this year’s theme is Made in Movember.  The theme encourages putting time & effort into creating something quite exceptional, which in this case is your badass mo of course.

With a launch of brand spankin’ new website – www.movember.com – Mo Bros are encourage to hop on over there and register before 1 November so you’re ready to roll come d-day.
