Each year during the month of November, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces. The movement started in Australia, but is slowly taking over the rest of the world. And that is not so strange as Movember is not only fun, it also serves good cause. Because Movember does not only change men’s faces, it literally changes the face of men’s health.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Ireland, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and the Czech Republic. In addition, Movember is aware of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas supporting the campaign and men’s health cause across the globe, from Russia to Dubai, Hong Kong to Antarctica, Rio de Janeiro to Mumbai, and everywhere in between.
In Canada Movember is in full movement. Under the title Movemboys the Canadian branch has launched an independent photography project to collect donations for Movember in order to fight prostate cancer and support male mental health initiatives. What it comes down to is actually quite simple. Following the huge success of the annual sexy men’s calendars, Movemboys offers you to discover throughout the month of November photo’s of Montreal’s sexy men proudly wearing their moustache. Many of the photos will be available. Both portrait and shirtless pics. Now where the portraits will be published as free gifts, the shirtless images require a small donation. Photographers Marc Bruxelle and Jonny Rueda are responsible for the enthralling portraits and during this month more and more topless Candadain men will be revealed on the official Movenboys website. The organization was so kind to share some of the hotties already with us, but please do consider these only as a teaser. Don’t let this stop you to take a tour on the Movemboys website and – more importantly – donate to the good cause. –BM-
