Grow Your 'Stache for Good Health

Dec 2, 2009

November may be over, but the Movember movement lives on. Every November, the Movember Foundation holds a month-long celebration of mustaches to promote and fund men's health issues, NBC News reports. At the start of the month, participants are clean-shaven, and they grow their 'staches throughout "Movember" to encourage donations and support for the cause. Many men don't get regular physicals or speak up when they feel unhealthy, and Movember aims to get men to be more proactive about their health. The annual event started in 2004, and it raised more than $30 million this year, which will go to Lance Armstrong's LiveStrong foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation. You can sport your Fu Manchu at gala parties across the country in the first week of December.
