September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and thanks to a small group of Australian surfers, November has been dubbed Movember, the month dedicated to raising funds and awareness for menโ€™s health, particularly testicular and prostate cancer.

To support the movement, guys grow a Mo (slang for a moustache), and essentially become walking, talking billboards during the month of November. Now in its seventh year in the US, Movember participants (Mo Bros) start off clean-shaven, then grow and groom their Mo for the rest of the month, raising money along the way to benefit menโ€™s health programs that combat prostate and testicular cancer. To join or learn more about the movement, including sponsors and events, check our Movember.com.

Menโ€™s grooming companies are getting in the Movember spirit as well. The Art of Shaving pledges to donate all proceeds for each Mustache Trim ($15) to Movember. To find an Art of Shaving location near the man in your life, go to TheArtofShaving.com to book a Mo trim.

Dinair Airbrush Makeup encourages women (Mo Sistas) to support Movember by brandishing a Mo of their own, airbrushed, of course. Dinair offers more than 10 moustache stencils from Clark Gable to Dali, which range in price for $6 to $32. For more info, visit: AirBrushMakeup.com.
