Last year’s Movember was phenomenally successful, with more of you (and us) than ever before taking part. Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across 21 countries helped raise more than £88m. Quite staggering.
If you still don’t know what Movember is all about then briefly; the aim is to raise funds and generate awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. A cause we of course whole heartedly support.
An Ape or Gentleman wearing a moustache can clearly spark off a trail of goodness, and importantly fund raising – well done you. We must also pay thanks to some of the big men’s grooming brands who have helped raise significant funds. Such as Major Partners Gillette who created their very own London barbershop pop-up, offering free Mo’ touch ups and who also generated £100,000 for Movember via product sales, to smaller offerings from the likes of TOMS Shoes, who released two pairs of Movember limited edition shoes with sales proceeds going to the Movember charity (and a pair of new shoes to a child in need, as usual).
Please find below the official Movember InfoGraphic with all of the impressive statistics. Congratulations to everyone who got involved, in any way, shape or form – just talking about Movember and men’s health to a friend could save a life.
