Movember With the Earthlings

POSTED BY Modern Earth

Nov012011

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer. Every Mo-Bro’s face become’s a walking billboard for public awareness, and every Mo-Sista laughs, points, and shakes her donation can - to help raise money to support good health for their fathers, partners, brothers and sons.

Under the hirsute leadership of Rob “The Lion” Rodgers, many of the Earthlings have taken up the cause, registering as the Mo-Bros and Mo-Sista’s at our Mo dern Earth team page - HINT: This is where you can make your donation.

Our Fearless Furry Leader will be taking almost daily photos, and making a timestream video of them at the end of the month. More frequent updates will be done on our Facebook page. And if you want to see the “after” images before Movember has even started - check out the Meet the Earthlings Page – just for fun.

Movember - a global movement

Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.1 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate, with formal campaigns in Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, the UK, Finland, the Netherlands, Spain, South Africa and Ireland. 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.

No matter the country or city, Movember will continue to work to change established habits and attitudes men have about their health, to educate men about the health risks they face, getting them to act on that knowledge thereby increasing the chances of early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment.

In 2010, nearly 119,000 Canadian Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board, raising $22.3 million CAD.

Thanks in advance for your support. - As one Mo-Sista says – Men hold up half the sky – we have to keep them healthy & strong!
