Will the men in your life be sporting a mo this month?

What is a MO you might ask??   🙂  Or maybe you already know, and this post can just serve as a reminder to get your guys to stop shaving for November….start or keep up the tradition of growing a Mo for Movember!!

The month of November, has been unofficially renamed by many as MOvember – in support of men’s health issues.

Here in Canada,  Prostate Cancer and the reminder for men to go get a prostate exam,  seem to be the mo- majority of  our men are mo’ing it all month.

Although, around the world, depression and testicular cancer have become a part of this special month.  And I for one, am all for it.  Men’s health issues should be just as important and widely known about, as women’s.

We had a scare with my Dad’s health (prostate) a few years ago, and we have all been proud supporters of Movember ever since – and gathering more and more people every year.  We have best moustache- funniest moustache- longest moustache etc.  And the winners have donations made in their name, to the mens health charity of their choice.

The rules are simple:

Rules

The rules of conduct given on the Movember site are:

  1. Once registered at movember.com each mo bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face.
  2. For the entire month of November each mo bro must grow and groom a moustache.
  3. There is to be no joining of the mo to [one’s] sideburns. (That’s considered a beard.)
  4. There is to be no joining of the handlebars to [one’s] chin. (That’s considered a goatee.)
  5. Each mo bro must conduct himself like a true country gentleman

(**I personally don`t think you have to sign up…if he is sporting a mo, he is showing support for the cause)

Ok, now that you have been reminded – or made aware…what are you waiting for!!  Check out the Mo site 🙂  www.movember.com
