Movember is a month of action to prevent young men from dying. The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale every day of the year. The aim of the Movember Foundation is to help men live longer, happier lives. By 2030 the Movember Foundation aims to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

The Movember Foundation commenced in 2003, and in the past 13 years, it has funded 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.

Movember is particularly celebrated in November as Moustache-November in which people grow a moustache or paint one on – the foundation has Mo Bros and Mo Sistas.

Their banner is a moustach. Their motto for November is GROW A MO TO SAVE A BRO. It is 30 days – a month – of action to prevent young men from dying. People sign up, grow and groom a moustache for 30 days, and put the call out to raise money for men’s health.
