November has a lot going on, from Veterans’ Day to Thanksgiving, but it’s also Moustache Movember, a month dedicated to promoting men’s health issues. Each year during November, men are asked to grow moustaches in order to bring awareness of men’s health issues. Sporting a moustache is a way to open conversations about how important health problems men face every day, including prostate and testicular cancer and mental health problems. You can join the Movember movement on their website at us.movember.com, where you can get resources on how to jump start conversations about the issues or start your own fundraiser.
Moustaches for All
If you can’t grow a moustache for whatever reason, you can still spark conversation by wearing one of Halloween Empire’s luxurious fake moustaches this Movember. Increasingly, women are also getting involved in the Movember movement, and our faux mustaches are the perfect way to “grow” a ‘stache that will make any man jealous! Simply choose your style and wear your fake mustache to any social activity where you’ll be sure to get lots of attention.
- Feeling dapper? Love to talk with a British accent? Then our English Moustache is an excellent choice. Wear it with your favorite tweed jacket for the best effect.
- Are you a bit of a gambler? Do you love old movies and songs about stylish men who are card sharks? Then our western gambler moustache will be perfect this Movember.
- If you long to twirl the curled ends of your upper lip shade, our Frenchman mustache will have you humming French tunes and sipping wine in style.
- Swashbucklers can wear our Pirate facial hair set with or without the beard. The moustache is an impressively droopy and full ‘stache that can’t be missed.
There are several other options for any man or woman who wants to celebrate Movember properly, so be sure to check our selection out!
Ways to Join the Movember Movement
Any type of social event can become a Movember moment if you grow or wear a moustache, then turn the conversation toward men’s health issues. Just start talking about the high incidence of prostate and testicular cancer and how to prevent it through funding. Or focus on men’s mental health issues and ways to help men who are suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. Ask for donations to the Movember fund, which allocates funds for various types of research in men’s health. Many companies offer matching funds to participants.
Host an Event
It’s easy to host a Moustache Movember Event – just invite your friends and ask them to support your moustache growing efforts with a donation to the organization. You can ask everyone to grow their own or have an assortment of fake mustaches available and let everyone try on different styles, then snap some pics for everyone to share.
If you’re the competitive type, challenge your bros to grow a mustache that’s better than yours and take pictures throughout the month to compare. Consider a prize for the man who grows the most impressive ‘stache and have friends make donations to Movember in support of their favorite “mo bro.”
Whatever you do, have fun with it and enjoy Moustache November!
