Its ‘Mo Bro’ Month

‘Mo Bros’ can decide which style they wish to nurture this Movember.
‘Mo Bros’ can decide which style they wish to nurture this Movember.

FROM Sunday 1 Movember the number of unshaven men will hopefully increase throughout the world, including South Africa.
This month is when the campaign to change the face of men's health is held in order to create awareness for the oft ignored subject of men's health emphasising prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and physical inactivity. Globally there is still a stigma around diseases that affect men, who are inclined not to talk about such issues, which impact negatively on early detection and essentially life expectancy.

“Mo Bros” start the month with a clean-shaven face, but for the rest of the month, grow and groom their way to magnificent moustachery as they become walking and talking billboards on men's health issues. With the support of "Mo Sistas" men are encouraged to create awareness and to encourage the hairy growth and Mo Bros are asked to obtain sponsorship for the initiative. All funds raised will be given to Cansa.

A range of styles can be seen in the illustration, and certain rules apply as follows:

• Register on Movember.com

• For the entire month of Movember, grow and groom a moustache,

• Don't fake it, no beards, no goatees and no fake moustaches

• Use the power of your moustache to create conversation and raise funds for men's health.

• Each Mo Bro must conduct himself like true a gentleman­.
