We begin November clean shaven and motivated. It’s time for Movember, and time to kick cancer’s ass. Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to rase money for cancer research. CineTechNews will be participating and wants you and your facial hair to join our team. Head over to mobro.co/EmileHanton make a donation and join our team. Together we can have awesome mustaches and make a difference in the process.
A little Movember history from the good folks at Wikipedia.
Movember (a portmanteau of the slang word “mo” for moustache and “November”) is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November. The event was conceived in 1999 by a group of Australian men from Adelaide.
Since 2004, the Movember Foundation charity has run Movember events to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and depression, in Australia and New Zealand. In 2007, events were launched in Ireland, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Spain, the United Kingdom, Israel, South Africa, and the United States.
In 2010, Movember merged with the testicular cancer event Tacheback. Also in 2010, Movember was marked and moustaches were grown by friends of leukemia patient Michael Simning, in Gwangju City, South Korea.
