100% Face Grown
Three brave souls, Hitendra Patel, Peter Gardner and Paul Brown at Spratt Endicott took the plunge to join in the Movember campaign this year raising £570.00 making it well worth the moments of discomfort felt in public places over the last 4 weeks (none of them decided to maintain the look past Movember).
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in the UK and around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Mo Sistas are the women who register to support the men in their lives, raising funds by seeking sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
The demonstration of their gallantry and valor is shown in the latest photograph of their hirsute appendages of the upper lip.
In 2010, over 112,000 UK Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board, raising £11.7 million.
Big steps have been taken towards changing attitudes and habits relating to men’s health around the world but there is still much to be done to catch up with the women’s health movement. Via the moustache, Movember aims to fulfill its vision of having an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health, by continuing to spark conversation and spread awareness of men’s health each year.
