started in 2003 in melbourne, australia, movember is a health ribbon for the men’s health. a ribbon very different than the cliche and much more easier adapted to men’s attitude and beliefs. movember is a mix of mo as in moustache and november. the rules are easy, grow moustache from the start of the november and keep it till the end of the month. the concept is easier, the change in the look together with the unification of the change in one month raise awareness to the men’s health.
mo bros is the name given to the gents participating in the movember. there are also mo sistas who are the ladies who ‘love’ or ‘hate’ the new looks of the men in this month.
i personally found the idea interesting, there are a few good points about this. from a personal perspective, you change your normal look, which gives you the opportunity to be different for a month, to be silly, which liberates you from all the chains and restrictions the society and your ego put on your shoulder. the other advantage is the main purpose of the campaign, which is bringing awareness to the men’s health in particular prostate cancer. and the last, not the least, is come on, you wanted to try that moustache all your life, why not try it in this month; it gives you the motivation as well as the support; remember you are not the only one growing moustache in november.
below is the official intro to the movember canada and here is the official website.
