Let Movember begin!

The Independent features a trio of Mo Bros raising money to help fight prostate cancer.

The month of the moustache has begun. Once known as November, the eleventh month of the year is now better known to many as “Movember”. The Independent, in partnership with 3 men who have put their upper lips on the line, presents the Movember Mupdate.

If you don’t know what Movember is, you have probably at least noticed the significant increase in moustached men around this time of year. Well the goal is much greater than just making a superb fashion statement; with their moustaches, participating men are raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically the most common male cancer: prostate cancer. A global movement, the Canadian campaign raised $22.3 million in 2010 alone.

From the Movember website: “On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. 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. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.”

Meet David Harvey, Mike Dawe, and Michael Bartellas, our Movember Mupdate participants. Read their stories, donate to their cause, and keep tabs on their growing moustaches. Their individual photo galleries will be updated as their moustache grows.
