Movember isn’t just about the size of your donation. It’s also about raising awareness. Movember started with a conversation between mates and it’s a conversation that remains integral to how the Movember foundation is changing the fact of men’s health. The Movember foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversations. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide.
