Over the Dandruff

Thoughts we often overlook

12. ‘Movember’ Madness

What’s not to love about November? Football is here. The start of the ski season is near. And, well, basketball should be just starting up. Families reunite for Turkey Day and Holiday Spirit echoing around the world.

Now this glorious month has been taken over by a great cause, “Movember.” Movember is a month long campaign to raise awareness and funds about men’s health. The funds raised by Movember in 2011 go directly to programs run by Movemember and their major men’s health sponsors, LIVESTRONG and the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

After registering on http://www.movember.com, “Mo Bros” create a “Mo Space page” where they can add pictures, the “Mo Community” can rate the best ‘stache and donations can be made. Beware, this is no half-assed movement here, there are rules.

Started in Australia in 2003, Movember has become international. There are Facebook pages that range from “Movember USA” to “Movember Denmark.” According to their website, the Movember campaign has over 1.1 million men and women involved worldwide and has raised $174 million dollars in eight years.

There are amazing stories on Movember TV that will make you want to grab the ‘Stache Wax and join Mo Space.

 

Another great movement making the world a better place.
