I recently attended the launch of this year’s Movember. Now for those of you who may not know, Movember is held each year in November, and is a moustache growing charity initiative, which enjoys over 1.2 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world. Participants grow moustaches to generate awareness by getting men to talk about their health issues.
Movember is a global campaign in 21 countries and its vision is to “Change The Face of Men’s Health.” Last year saw more than 30 000 South Africans sign up and together raise more than R6.4million for local men’s health programmes. Globally, the campaign raised more than R1 billion last year.
