Movember is a combination of the words moustache and November, and its purpose is to raise awareness and funds for men’s health.


On Movember 1st, men start out clean shaven and grow a moustache for the remainder of the month . The ‘stache then becomes a ribbon-like symbol for cancers that affect men.

Movember was created in Australia in 2003 as a quirky way to spark a men’s health movement.

Movember is celebrated in the U.S., U.K., Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Spain, South Africa, the Netherlands and Finland.
