Smile.. It’s MOvember!

Posted: Oct 21st, 2010 | Featured News |

MoMo is pleased to support the Movember Foundation, a not-for-profit, charitable organisation which runs the annual men’s health initiative, Movember, across the globe. Each year, Movember, the month formerly known as November, is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces around the world, with the sole aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

Men sporting Movember moustaches, known as Mo Bros, 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. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts. The rules are simple; register online at Movember.com and start the month of Movember clean shaven and then grow a moustache for 30 days.

The money raised as a result of Movember is channelled by our men’s health partners into a number of world class and innovative education, research and awareness initiatives. Importantly, the total cost of administration and fundraising at 6% of donations is low by global fundraising standards, and reflects our goal of reaching for the best possible campaign outcome while carefully monitoring costs.

So, massive props to the MoMo crew down-under for stepping foward on this worthy cause. We encourage you to support their activities or donate to your local country.. and Smile.. It’s MOvember!
