It is the time of the year again! “Movember” is an annual event for men to grow moustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues.

History of Movember

It was started in 2003 by the Original 30 Mo Bros in Australia. They have formally support prostate cancer as their cause. The list of the Original 30 provided by Movember Official Website.

Since then, it has grown far and beyond Australia. Countries like Czech Republic, Singapore, Hong Kong and even South Africa has joined to support the cause. As of 2013, there are more than 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas becoming part of the Movember movement.

Rules of Movember

To get yourself involved during the month of Movember, here are the rules which you must “STRICTLY” adhere to;

  • You must begin with a clean-shaven face on November 1
  • For the entire month of November you must grow and groom a mustache
