MOVEMBER

Isn’t it crazy to think that it’s November already? There are only two months left of 2021 and I feel like most of us are still taking in 2020. November is a great month, the build up to christmas, winding down at the end of the year but also there is a great brilliant movement that takes place every year, Movember. 


Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. People across the world participate in the challenge by growing out their moustaches for the month of November to raise money for the charity. Not only does this money go towards research and help in testicular and prostate cancer but, at the forefront, it goes towards men’s mental health and suicide prevention services. Movember states that, “Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.” 


If you see a friend, family member or someone you follow participating in Movember, try to support in any way you can. Whether it is donating, sharing informative posts or supporting them, Movember is a great movement to get behind this month!
