Do YOU Know What Movember Stands For? 58% of People Don’t

Movember- Mustache, and November. Simple right? Wrong, because Movember actually means more than just growing out some facial hair to please your friends on Facebook. Let me fill you in about Movember.

Movember is actually supposed to be an event to signify “changing the face of men’s health”. Movember Charities raise funds for such causes as Prostate Cancer. Unfortunately, the cause has been partially lost with the clever name. I did a survey on Google Plus where #movember has been trending since July, and found that a large percentage of younger people (22 and below) that were growing it out, simply had no idea what the cause was, or what they were doing it for. An even higher percentage of young people who weren’t growing it out had no idea.

This has been a lesson in awareness. If you care about raising awareness and funds to fight cancer, share this post with your friends on Facebook, Google +, Twitter, or the social network of your choice.

Now enjoy this Movember video with Parks and Recreation (great show)’s Nick Offerman who has a sweet ‘stache.
